Glamping is here!


With glamping (or glamourous camping) becoming an increasingly popular choice with holidaymakers wanting to enjoy the great outdoors, but with more than just a touch of luxury, we’ve decided to offer visitors the chance to experience the tranquillity and beauty of the Norfolk countryside in lovingly built, traditional East Anglian shepherd’s huts.

This year, we’re launching glamping with two shepherd’s huts now installed on site. Each shepherd’s hut features a double bed, log burning stove and power and is decorated in a cosy country style, bringing a touch of glamping luxury under the big skies of the Norfolk countryside.

They’re really rather cosy…

We’re really excited about having the glamping option here on the farm. The huts really are a special place from which to spend a few days exploring the Norfolk countryside and what’s more, there is a family connection with the huts too, as they have been hand built by second cousin Andrew.

The Farm sits on 250 acres, where we grow mixed arable crops, grassland and have a prize-winning herd of pedigree Hereford cattle, which of course, are maintained to the highest standards of animal welfare and stewardship.

An intensive programme of planting for wildlife has been undertaken all around the farm with miles of hedgerows, new woodlands and hundreds of native trees planted. Field margins have been established with wild flowers to attract insects, especially pollinators like bees and butterflies.

All this means we’re positively surrounded by countryside filled with native wildlife, walks, pubs and cycle routes, making it the perfect base from which to explore the Norfolk countryside.

Weather it’s a weekend break from the city, a pitstop on a cycle tour, walking holiday or you just want a place to connect with nature, the peace and quiet here takes a lot of beating.






Super busy on the farm

Welcome welcome welcome to our brand spanking new website! We absolutely love it and hope you do too.

As ever, it’s been super busy on the farm. We have almost finished autumn calving 2018; just awaiting Mathilda to give birth to her second calf.  We have had four wonderful calves so far, from first time calving heifers, using semen from two outstanding Hereford bulls, Normanton Laertes and SMH Kingsize 87K. We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome, a bull and a heifer calf from each bull respectively.

Having bought our lovely cows in from pasture to wean their calves, we have put them out again over winter to graze a forage rye and vetch cover crop.  A first for us, and so far, so good, although they did decide to go for one outing onto the Norwich road! Fortunately, no-one was hurt and we managed to return the girls safely to their field.

We’ve also been busy delivering our beef boxes to meet our returning customers.  It’s so satisfying supplying the local community with our Hereford produce.  We work hard to achieve the standards required by the farm assurance scheme Red Tractor and take great satisfaction from the lovely feedback from our customers.

It’s reassuring to see that people are still enjoying red meat despite the growth in veganism and all the fake news about British livestock farming contributing to climate change (don’t get me started on that one).

We will have more beef boxes available in the New Year.

Until next time, take care.
