Musgrove Willows
For almost a hundred years the Musgrove family have been growing willow on the Somerset Levels, working sensitively with the environment to continue a traditional rural business offering a wide range of products and courses to businesses and individuals across the globe.

Willow is a renewable and sustainable crop annually harvested from a stump in withy beds. It is the ultimate green product absorbing carbon from the atmosphere as it grows and everyone at Musgrove Willows is committed to producing one of the most environmentally-friendly substances without the use of dyes, bleaches or fossil fuels.

At Musgrove Willows there is everything you need to create something beautiful from willow. Whether you are a willow beginner or have been using willow for a while, staff are more than happy to advise you on the equipment, training and methods you will need to fulfil your ambitions.

Musgrove Willows offer a range of courses suited to all levels of experience and are always happy to welcome visitors to Willowfields, whether you are attending one of the willow courses, seeking help and advice or would just simply like to look around.

There is a shop selling a range of willow products and gifts including some unique ready-made baskets that you will not find online, a picnic area and acres of willow beds teeming with wildlife.
