Family Farming

Uncle Henry’s is part of a family farming business owned by Steve and Meryl and managed by their daughter Emma. Emma is the fifth generation to live and work at the mixed arable and livestock farm where high welfare pig production and environmental stewardship are important parts of the farming business.

The farm runs an integrated system where the cereal crops on the farm are used to provide feed for the pigs, the straw is used as bedding and any manure produced is returned to the land to reduce our reliance on artificial fertilisers.​

Our farm is part of the higher level environmental stewardship scheme which means that the business has committed to maintain existing environmental features including hedgerows, permanent pasture protecting a rare orchid species, and has created new features including floristically enhanced margins, new ponds and increased public access. Our local beekeeper Bob Mould keeps his beehives on our farm which helps our local pollination. Bob jars the honey which we then sell in the farm shop.

Throughout our farming and farm shop business, we are always looking for ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint. We have two farm scale anaerobic digesters which combine our pig manure with maize silage. The methane gas produced generates electricity and heat for use on the farm, reducing the reliance on imported electricity.

We are so proud of our farm!

“Our farming system is a sustainable loop, we grow cereal crops such as wheat and barley which are put into our pigs feed and the straw from the crops is used as their bedding.'
