Extraordinary Ewe

Fordhall team recognition award nominations

We know all our staff and volunteers work extremely hard on a daily basis.

We want to recognise those instances when someone goes above and beyond.

You can use the form below to nominate anyone within the team at Fordhall – it doesn’t matter which business they work for or if they volunteer.

Help us to celebrate the special things those around us contribute, by nominating them here.

Each quarter the nominations will be gathered up and a decision will be made by our 'Values Champion' board member. The winner of Extraordinary Ewe will receive a gift voucher for the shop or cafe.

  • Muck in: it’s a team effort, so we all support each other to make it work.
  • Gather the flock: we encourage and support everyone, from anywhere to get involved.
  • Plant the seed: we’re always up for trying out new things, growing together and sowing ideas for others to follow.
  • Love mother nature: we care deeply about respecting and protecting our natural environment and we want to share this passion.
  • Be a place in the sun: we want to have fun, creating memorable experiences which engage hearts and minds.

Things to do during your stay


You will be left to your own devices during your stay, and are free to explore our picturesque organic farm. We have farm trails weaving around the farm, which will take you around our pastures, woodland and along the river. Why not say hello to some of our friendly animals as you explore?

Our organic Farm Shop is a short walk away, where you can purchase delicious local produce to prepare in the yurts. We can also provide you with a hamper of your favourite goodies to make your stay stress- and decision-free – just let us know when you book.

Our yurts are designed to help you reconnect with nature, your loved ones and yourself. They are well and truly off-grid. For this reason we have no Wi-Fi facilities at the yurts. There are electricity sockets available for use at the farm in the main building, but with the Shropshire Hills as your playground, this is the perfect place to switch off!

The nature of our yurts and surroundings lends itself perfectly to families that home educate; there are so many new experiences you can enjoy with your children whilst they learn about the natural world first hand.

We're hiring!
