Christmas Hill Farm was purchased in 2015 by Greenheath Farming Company Ltd, the directors of which are Thomas Clayton and Sophie Hughes whose dream it has always been to have their own farm. The opportunity arose after moving their business, Greenheath Limited, to a neighbouring yard in 2010 and the dream became more of a reality with such beautiful countryside surrounding them. The farm is made up of mainly arable crops with woodland in between and waterways running their courses throughout the farm.
Christmas Hill farm also neighbours the RSPB nature reserve to the north where the land was converted from arable farmland into a large wetland which encourages numerous different species of wildlife.
Christmas Hill Farm is home to a wonderful farm café, an animal feed merchant, native Longhorn cattle, horses and wildlife galore!
The farm café is run by husband and wife, Lina and Dean Napparell who moved to the farm in 2012.
It is always worth a visit, if nothing more than to try the homemade food which head chef Dean prepares by hand himself. Have a look at the café menu for a more tempting outlook of what this innovative couple has to offer.
