  • Fordhall Organic Farm

    Email:

    The Fordhall  Community Land Initiative (FCLI) is a social enterprise owned and run by 8,000 non-profit making shareholders. It owns Fordhall Organic Farm, utilising it to reconnect the community to food and farming through events, volunteering and educational activities. The FCLI leases the farm land to a tenant farmer, Ben Hollins. Like any other tenant farmer, Ben manages the land, livestock and farm shop with his own staff and pays a monthly rent to the FCLI. The farm shop and online store stocks meat raised on the farm as well as locally-grown vegetables and locally-produced produce including milk, cheese, yoghurt, honey, alcohol and other artisan foods. They now have their own bakery on site, making pasties, pork pies, sausage rolls, steak pies and more. Fordhall can deliver nationwide though the online shop or you can pop in and collect your meat and produce fresh from the counter. As well as the farm shop and educational visits, Fordhall also has its own 30-seater bistro. Arthur’s Farm Kitchen serves hot food all week (Tues-Sun), starting with breakfasts, followed by lunches and cold sandwiches or soups late afternoon. All this in addition to home-made cakes, scones, freshly ground organic and fair trade coffee, organic/herbal teas and a great atmosphere. The kitchen can also cater for vegans, gluten free and most other
