About us

Farming with nature

Sustainably producing delicious, nutrient-rich food

Set in the beautiful Cotswold valley near Stow-on-the-Wold, Fir Farm is a 800 acre mixed livestock farm raising native and rare breed animals using sustainable, high welfare practices.

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 a pasture-fed beef herd, sheep, pigs, goats and poultry. We also grow some organic arable crops as feed for the poultry and pigs, ensuring that all of our animals are fed solely on food produced on the farm.

Our farm landscape is diverse, from permanent pasture and meadows, 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

    We rear all our animals on a natural diet and use our integrated grazing system to build organic matter, improve soil health and put carbon back into the ground.
