Ashcroft Farm

Ashcroft Farm extends to about 77ha. It was bought by the Meeson family in 1961, and for many years was run as an intensive, grass based, dairy farm, with a successful herd of Jersey cows. The herd was sadly sold in 2004. Today the main enterprise is the rearing of free-range meat chickens. This extends to 34,500 birds at any one time, but uses less than 1% of the land area. The rest has diversified to include, growing fodder for the equine market, liveries, a campsite, and most recently introducing a better environmental role with Higher Level Stewardship.
