Pedal Power Inspires Us All!


Last night we were lucky enough to entertain 3 remarkable young people who are cycling from Lands End to John O'Groats to raise money for their chosen charities. Not only are they slightly crazy, they are also very cheerful and determined! Follow this link to read more about them and maybe even donate to keep them inspired to pedal faster!

All three riders are part of Organic Futures which was established by the Soil Association to promote and support young people entering into farming.

Meanwhile, back at the farm, Ben and volunteers sometimes pop out from the butchery to say hello whilst preparing not only for the Nantwich Show (Fri, Sat and Sun) and the Uttoxeter Farmers Market this weekend, but also for all the online shop orders that have been placed since the new serivce was launched. Follow this link for more information and to find out about the great special deals available.


Reminder: Although the Big Draw has been cancelled on Oct 14th, the farm shop is still active (Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun 11-4) but unfortunately the Nature Trail is currently closed. We are very sorry for the inconvenience but we are also heartened by the huge amount of support you have all offered us. Thank you x

I don't know if your dad ever talked about a shop called Crabapple in Shrewsbury, which my mum started in the 1970s. She told me that your father used to come to the shop with vegetables and she remembered him very fondly. It was lovely therefore to read your book and 'reconnect'with the Fordhall Farm story. You have done the most amazing and inspiring thing and I think the whole country should be proud of you. Well done!! All the best,Hannah (Shrewsbury)
