About Us

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.

Blog readers, anyone for a farm tour?

It has been a busy spring with the farm hosting a number of farm walks for local clubs and societies. We had hoped to organise an open farm walk for all our local residents as we had done the year before but due to the early harvest looming this has not been possible.
However, our last farm walk for the summer is booked for the Monday 11th of July at Lodge Farm, Lark Valley Association are coming for a guided tour of the farm to look at our approach to modern farming and integration of wildlife conservation following a talk I did for them back in November. We have just touched base with them and asked if we could invite a few people who have enquired about a farm walk this year. So as a bit of a thank you from us for reading our blog we would like to invite you on the farm walk. There are only a limited number of spaces available for this tour in conjunction with the Lark Valley Association, but if you would like to know more and book a spot on the trailer then please can you email us at events@ejbarker.co.uk and we can give you the full details.
As I said, there will be a limit on space so please contact us soon if not you will have to wait till next year!! Hopefully we will see you on the trailer next week. BWB
