John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, came to Forest Row in June 1963 during his visit to the UK, attending a service at the Our Lady of the Forest church. At the time he was engaged in a series of discussions with the Prime Minister Harold Macmillan at his home in nearby Birch Grove. There is a plaque commemorating the visit on Freshfield Hall in the centre of the village.
Forest Row and Health
The village also has practising alternative therapists and two bio-dynamic organic farms, Tablehurst farm and Plawhatch farm. Bio-dynamics is a holistic, ecological and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food and nutrition. The Bio-dynamic method strives to create a diversified, balanced farm ecosystem that generates health and fertility as much as possible from within the farm itself. Today, the bio-dynamic movement encompasses thousands of successful gardens, farms, vineyards and agricultural operations of all kinds and sizes on all continents, in a wide variety of ecological and economic settings.
