About Us

My photo
Cousins working together on our family owned farm with the aim of running a commercial modern farm producing high yielding, high standard crops while maximising wildlife diversity. Brian is said to be the farmer and conservationist, whereas Patrick is a conservationist and farmer. This mix has given a new direction for the farm, building upon the work that our fathers and grandfather has done to improve the overall success of the farm business. The farm has gone from strength to strength with the farm being recognised at a national level winning the coveted National FWAG’s Silver Lapwing Award for farming and conservation in 2009 and then Patrick and Brian were named Countryside Farmer of the Year by the Farmers Weekly in 2010.

Now the farm is a movie set!

Over the past couple of days our farm yard and grain store has been taken over by a movie production. A friend from school is Producer for a short feature film and he was looking for a set that looked like a warehouse with enough space to build other temporary scenery in. He came and had a look and within the week we had make up girls, sound crew, lighting, props, runners and extra. Oh and P.H. Moriarty aka 'Hatchet Harry' form 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' standing in the yard.

The film being made is 'The Haunting of Harry Payne' due to be released in the new year.
As you may know we are not camera shy on the farm, however we did all turn down the roll of 'man with throat cut' and 'little Susie'! 

We do some random things on the farm but you never know who may watch it and who may ring you up next time wanting to film here!! BWB

  1. Thank you so much for your help boys. Just to fill you in on some details. Paul is in fact one of the producers and the film will be available on dvd but only after it has had a full theatrical release
