Parsonage Farm is a family run farm, nestling in the North West of Hampshire, on the North Wessex Downs. It is unusual by remaining a working farm in a time when most are absorbed by bigger farms or developed. Much of the farm remains unchanged for centuries, flint buildings, small fields, ancient hedges and trees.
The land has always been sensitively farmed, so wildlife and wild flowers thrive alongside cattle, pigs and sheep, all of which are reared outside and allowed to grow slowly and naturally, having a higher quality of life as a result. The land is organic in nature, though we have chosen not to register for organic status.
In recent years much hedge and tree planting has taken place, to develop shelter and add to the natural environment.
