Fordhall Farm in the Independant

WOW - we can't believe it. Fordhall Organic Farm in rural Shropshire has been ranked 27th best Farm Shop in the country by the Independant newspaper.

The Independant's Top 50 Farm Shops

Our new shop and local food tearoom has only been open since the end of May and so to get such recognition is a real achievement. Thank you to all our wonderful customers and supporters.

We love selling fantastic local and organic food and we love eating it in our tearoom too :-)

As England's first community owned farm we are always wanting to try something new, and this year is no different. We are currently organising an fantastic local ale and music festival in partnership with our local micro Brewer Joules. The event will include 12 hours of funky, rock, folk and blues music coupled with over 15 different local ales.

So don't forget to put September 3rd in your diary now - tickets are only £10 per person in advance (free for under 14's) and you can camp for only £5! Bargain....

See you there!

Dear Ben and Charlotte and all the Fordhall Team
Thank you for the supporters lunch, delicous as usual and great to meet
other supporters.

We have much to congratulate you on. We visited your farm shop and you
well deserve to be in the top 50 of Englands best farm shops. The
progress since our last visit is amazing. We are proud to be part of such
a great project and look forward to our next visit

Best Wishes

Dear Charlotte & Ben,

The only reason you\'ve gained that accolade is because of the vision, hard work and
team building you and Ben have put in over the past few years!

Well done and keep going!
