OUR BRAND VALUES*

We are 3rd generation farmers on a small tenant farm 1 mile north of Moreton in Marsh. Sustainability is something we really care about at Old Farm, we believe that by following traditional farming methods we can help in the fight against climate change. We took over the farm from Simon's parents in 2002 and since then have installed a cutting room and farm shop so that we can offer local people a chance to buy local and know exactly where their food is produced. Our abattoir is only 7 miles away and all our meat is packaged at the farm where we also make award winning sausages, bacon and gammons. In 2013 we made a series for BBC1 with Adam Henson and Nigel Slater - "Nigel and Adam's Farm Kitchen". This followed our farming year from planting to harvest with Nigel making delicious meals for us using meat and grains from the farm and vegetables form the garden. In 2019 we were approached by Adam Henson and we now make all the sausages for the Cotswold Farm Park!

OUR COMMITMENTS*

Sustainability

Our sheep & Hereford cattle graze permanent pasture land that could not be used for growing crops, well-managed grazing systems can sequester enough carbon to entirely compensate for the GHGs these systems release. Our “Glamrock” pigs are housed in straw yards & outside in tents. Hay & silage is made on the farm to feed stock over the winter reducing transport costs & emissions. Straw from the arable crops is used for bedding. Manure is put back onto the arable land to reduce the need for artificial fertilisers & we are trialling a "no-till" approach to improve soil quality.

Environment

We are helping to reduce food miles by selling meat direct to the customer from our small Farm Shop.

Local Communities

Our shop offer locals a chance to buy our meat as well as just popping in for a chat... We are open on a Friday and Saturday and have a great coffee machine too!

Packaging & Waste

We use compostable trays for packing meat in the farm shop where possible and stock cleaning product re-fills, locally made beeswax food wraps and goat milk soap and shampoo bars.

Inspiring & Educating

We are members of LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) and have been involved with Open Farm Sunday since it started. We also run school visits and take work experience students form local schools and colleges.

Energy Reduction

We are always looking to ways to reduce our energy consumption and a few years ago we installed a biomass boiler to heat the farmhouse and provide hot water for the B&B. This runs on straw and waste wood from the farm and our kerosene usage has been reduced by about 90%.

Animal Welfare

At Old Farm the animals always come first. The pigs are kept on straw and sows make great nests when it's time to farrow. The cattle are housed in straw yards for the winter and from April - October they have their own permanent ridge and furrow field complete with mature oaks for shade and shelter. The sheep live outside all year round with the exception of lambing time when they are housed overnight so we can keep an eye on them.
