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.

It's all gone quiet!


Sorry for the lack of activity on the blog for a while. Brian and I have been working hard on another project which has taken most of the winter. We have started a company called Three Arches Care Ltd and taken on the running of Westhorpe Hall residential care home. The Hall has always been in the family but always rented out and the opportunity arose to run it ourselves. We are registered to look after elderly people and elderly people with dementia and employ 29 local care, cleaning and catering staff. We took over the running on 1st October and it has been a challenging time but one that we have relished. As the business settles down we will have a bit more to blog about the farm and maybe even a few updates from the care home as well!
