About us

Farming with nature

Sustainably producing delicious, nutrient-rich food

Fir Farm is an 800 acre organic mixed farm set in Lower Swell in the Cotswolds. We manage the land in harmony with nature, raising native breed livestock, growing heritage grains and producing sustainable timber.

Always striving to be as sustainable as possible, we take an holistic approach that works with nature to regenerate our environment, creating both agricultural and environmental diversity. Our objective is to produce food without diminishing our natural capital.

Over the last 10 years the farm has transitioned from a large dairy business to an organic mixed livestock farm, fully integrated with pasture-fed beef and dairy cattle and outdoor-reared pigs. We also grow heritage grains, fruit and nut trees.

Our farm landscape is diverse, from permanent pasture, meadows and arable fields, to woodlands, orchards, rivers and ponds. We have extensive biodiversity across the farm, as well as fertile soils and lots of interesting history, including evidence of ridge and furrow systems from the Middle Ages and Victorian dew ponds.

What we do

    Our farm is an integrated, circular system which means each component has a role to play in regenerating the environment. The rotation of animals and crops helps to restore the soil and increase natural fertility.
