Who we are
Manor Organic Farm is a family run farm, shop, butchery, bakery situated in the village of Long Whatton, Leicestershire. The farm is home to a magniﬁcent herd of rare breed Longhorn cattle, pedigree Lleyn and Polled Dorset sheep, turkeys, chickens, geese and ducks, two goats, three guinea pigs, two rabbits and various other friendly animals! All the meat from the farm is sold here on-line and through the farm shop which offers a fantastic selection including organic beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, venison and an award winning range of home made sausages, burgers and home dry cured bacons and gammon. We also offer organic vegetables, diary, groceries, beer and wine and have our own on site bakery turning some of our wheat, rye and spelt into freshly baked bread and other treats.
We can do vegetable boxes to order for collection as well as any particular meat orders, just let us know and you can collect from the shop.
As of 2018 we are proud to have welcomed ‘Little Farmers’ to our on farm classroom running before and after school clubs, school visits and farm holiday clubs. Please contact Little Farmers directly, through Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our Background and Philosophy
We have been farming organically since 1989 and believe that organic farming is a positive philosophy, and is more than just avoiding the use of artiﬁcial chemicals and fertilisers. It is a sustainable approach to farming which views the farm as a whole system in harmony with the natural surroundings and nature itself as well as the local community .The farm is part of a Higher Level Environmental Stewardship scheme which includes restoring wild ﬂower meadows and other traditional grasslands as well as hedgerow and ﬁeld margin management. Since arriving here in 1995 we have planted over 1800 tress and restored 2 miles of hedgerow. We are also inspected annually by the Soil Association (and annually pass with ﬂying colours!) who certify us as organic. They are the pinnacle of organic certiﬁcation and uphold the highest standards of animal welfare.
All of this means that you shop with us we can guarantee you the food you eat has been grown or sourced in the most environmentally, and ethically, sound way and with the very highest standards of animal welfare. This ensures the food on your plate is not only the very best tasting food in the region, but also food with a clear conscience.We are situated just off Main Street in Long Whatton.
