The allotments were established in 1905 following the death of Anne Turner. Today, over 100 years later, the ATMA continues to thrive as a registered charity (#221998) to provide its plot holders a communal area for growing fruit, vegetables, and ornamental flowers.
The North Ferriby Anne Turner Memorial allotments are available to local residents of North Ferriby and the surrounding villages.
The allotments are made up of 84 plots and each has an individual character as diverse as the plot holders. Ages range from octogenarians to teenagers and we have ‘no-dig’ plots to double dig plots.
Specialists grow competition sweet peas, lilies, dahlias and tulips in addition to the practical crops of beans, potatoes, sweetcorn and other salad crops. We hold an annual competition amongst plot holders which in the past has been potatoes, beans and this year we are having a pumpkin competition. The pumpkins will be coming up for judging in September. We will also be coming up to harvest time and surplus produce is often shared amongst plot holders or given to a local food bank.
