Woodlands Farm forms part of a family enterprise which has been farmed by the Dennis family for four generations. Situated five miles south-east of Boston, the farm consists of level, fertile silt fens which are said to have been reclaimed from the sea by the monks of Crowland Abbey some nine hundred years ago.

The farm lies in an area known as South Holland in the Lincolnshire fens. The landscape is one of wide open spaces and colossal skies - "All sky and geometry" as the poet John Clare once said. The horizons are punctuated by many fine churches. From the farm it is possible to see six church spires.

Woodlands Farm is approximately 1700 acres. It was created from a number of fields acquired by William Dennis in about 1870. William Dennis the son of a farm labourer, came to be regarded as something of a visionary farmer, particularly in respect of his work with the potato. He was also a philanthropist. For the King's dinner to the poor following the coronation of King Edward VII in 1901, he provided sufficient potatoes to feed all the poor of London. Visitors to Kirton can find his statue standing outside the village hall.

Woodlands Farm is still very much a family affair. From William Dennis the farm passed first to Frank Dennis, then to Peter Kirton Dennis, and now to Andrew Dennis. Woodlands Farm is a truly mixed farm, with a small herd of pedigree Lincoln Red Cattle ( The Woodlands Herd ) , Organic Bronze Turkeys and sheep. The farm also produces a wide range of organic vegetables and salads. In April 2000 the farm set up a regional organic vegetable Box Scheme designed to provide affordable organic vegetables for people living locally.

Woodlands Farm practices an 'open farm' policy. School visits are encouraged and can be arranged by appointment. Open days are held for Box Scheme customers, and the farm hosts demonstration days for organizations such as the Soil Association, and HDRA.
