One of the loveliest things I was told in the decade of running Middle Farm, was how a couple had enjoyed properly talking with one another again, listening to the noises of the countryside, walking and breathing in the cleaner air. The mobile didn’t ping constantly with notifications, they could get messages on their terms and not the instant it was sent. They made time to walk, relax and enjoy each others conversation leaving Middle Farm, like many of our guests, with their shoulders visibly more relaxed.
The history of Middle Farm dates back to the 15th Century, built by monks and cared for by hermits who stayed here as a place of sanctuary while growing their own food. To be honest, not much has changed. Middle Farm remains a very peaceful and grounding place and we too, grow as much of our own food as possible.
With a back ground in sales rather than farming I continue to learn new things every day and am delighted to welcome my partner Chris (the one in the stocks above!) into the farming world with me. We evolve surrounded by cottages, British Lop pigs, Soay sheep, an eclectic mix of chickens, veg patches and my two kids.
It is with huge passion for this simpler way of life that we hope to demonstrate how and why farming on a small scale and for flavour, still has a place in the British countryside and hope too that you will enjoy staying here and experiencing a bit of peace and quiet with us in the hills of Shropshire.
