Fordhall Organic Farm
Proud to be community owned
Come & Explore Us!
Fordhall Organic Farm, in Market Drayton, north Shropshire, is England’s first community-owned farm following a high profile campaign in 2006. At the time over 8000 people across the world supported siblings Charlotte and Ben Hollins to save their family home. Now owned by the community through a charitable community benefit society (Fordhall Community Land Initiative) and farmed by Ben Hollins, Fordhall is a wonderful example of community spirit and real organic farming.
A Place in the Sun
Fordhall Organic Farm is free to visit. We aim to show that small-scale farming, connected to the local community, offers a viable way of life for generations to come. The farm has been chemical free for over 65 years, and we rear cattle, sheep and pigs on an outdoor extensive grazing system.
