Organic Status
Fordhall Farm is farmed using organic principles and has been chemical free for over 65 years. It is currently in organic conversion with the Soil Association

We (Charlotte, 23 and Ben, 21) now run Fordhall Farm on the outskirts of Market Drayton. Ben manages the livestock on the farm and the more practical aspects of farm management as well as the Farm Shop, and Charlotte does the bookwork for the farm and correspondence for the Project with Project Manager Sophie Hopkins.

We currently tenant Fordhall Farm after it was secuerd in July 2006 by over 7000 people from across the country. We now have a 100 lease at Fordhall.

The ‘Fordhall Community Land Initiative ’ was created in October 2003 and incorporated in 2005 - a project that would work to secure Fordhall long term and subsequently open it to the public as an education and resource centre promoting sustainable/organic farming and healthy living - a subject area which our father, Arthur Hollins, spent his life researching at the Farm.

We believe Fordhall has an atmosphere and history which no one can take from it and a huge potential that is just waiting to be unlocked, and we are enjoying opening that door.

Both reaching the end of our time in education and wondering what we were going to do with the rest of our lives in 2004 – regenerating Fordhall seemed like the perfect job (Charlotte - recently graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree reading Environmental Management with Maths, and Ben – completed his HND in Agriculture at Harper Adams Agricultural College).

We are now selling our produce direct from the farm shop, have opened a nature trail and picnic area and are slowly building the resources available at Fordhall.

It's hard work, but extremely rewarding and exciting. We welcome anyone who wishes to join us on this ambitious project.
