About

Welcome to our small farm in the Chiltern Hills.  Ted and Jackie moved into the main farmhouse with Harry, Fergus and Bobby (not forgetting Tess our collie) five years ago having lived on the farm for the past 15 years.

 

Ted was born on the farm which his father bought in 1953.  The farm, like most small English farms, has diversified considerably since the 1960's and 70's when it was a true 'mixed' farm with dairy, then chickens and pigs alongside crops such as Oats, Wheat and Barley.  

 

In the 1980's the farm was mostly crops and sheep, with around 200 Welsh ewes.  When Ted's father retired the sheep were sold and the farm reverted to crops and horses.

 

More recently we have re-introduced sheep, albeit the rather more low-maintenance variety of Soay sheep, and we also keep; chickens, ponies and horses.  

 

Like most small farms, many of the original outbuildings have been converted to accommodate small businesses who appreciate the lovely location and the family feel.

 

We look forward to meeting you.
