Sheep farm, kitchen and workshops

For the last 20 years, we’ve been raising a family, regenerating the land, breeding sheep, creating amazing recipes and building for the future in the heart of rural Derbyshire.

For the last year we’ve been sharing that journey on YouTube, join us today!

Our flock

At the heart of our farm in rural Derbyshire, just south of Ashbourne, are our flock of North England / Suffolk cross sheep. Our ewes live out all year round and only come into the barn in March for lambing.

Do make sure you check out our YouTube channel for all the latest from the farm.


Our fully fitted commercial kitchen on the farm is where the magic happens! We make all our own bread, for the family and our many guests, and also use the kitchen to prepare a huge range of delicious produce from the farm. Did we mention the brewery? Nestled at the back of the kitchen is the small brewery where we make all our own beer.

Come and stay

If you get the chance, do come and stay in our completely self-contained, luxuriously appointed studio apartment which you can book on Airbnb. 

It’s very popular with guests as a base for walking in the glorious Derbyshire countryside, or simply to chill out and enjoy the sights and sounds of the farm.


Whether its wood-turning, constructing fine furniture or machining on the CNC-Router, it’s all happening in the farm workshop.

We grow a lot of wood, mostly Oak, and we’re passionate about turning this wonderful resource into beautiful things. We often show these projects on YouTube so do take a look.

Online shop

We’re very excited to announce that our online shop is now OPEN! Currently, we’re offering a limited range of branded items, including our awesome kitchen aprons, for sale that we can ship world-wide.

Do keep checking back, however, as we have loads more products coming soon!

Do get in touch with us, ask a question, leave a message and let us know what you think.
