Fordhall Organic Farm, in Market Drayton, north Shropshire is England’s first community owned Farm and has been organic for over 65 years.
Their tenant farmer Ben rears grass fed beef, lamb and Gloucester Old Spot pork. Owned by a charitable community-benefit society, our farm is open to the public as an enjoyable and educational resource year round. Fordhall Farm led the way in organic farming after the war, pioneered British yogurt production in the 1950’s, and after being saved from development in 2006 through a pioneering national campaign, it is now owned by over 8000 community shareholders.
Fordhall Organic Farm is open year round to the public as well as offering free farm trails, organic café, group tours, glamping in their fabulous yurts, educational visits, events, courses, weddings, meeting room space, care farming and volunteering opportunities.
