The Whidborne family have been focused on farming in West Berkshire for over 60 years. Having moved in 1946 from Alton, Hampshire Edward Whidborne took on the tenancy of Manor Farm in Brightwalton and later purchased the tenancy of the farm and began to expand the business.
In addition to the arable business, the farm at Brightwalton has 100 acres of woodland and almost 100 acres of grassland.
The woodland and parts of the arable rotation are managed as a pheasant and partridge shoot. This gives the shop a ready supply of wild venison, pigeon and rabbit as well as pheasant and partridge when in season.
The grassland is maintained for the beef enterprise which can be purchased and enjoyed in shop.
Run by Clare Whidborne, the third generation at Manor Farm the farm shop business has continued to develop since it opened in 2012. With demand on the butchery department growing, Clare and her husband David Pill decided in early 2014 to expand the business with the addition of a sheep flock.
Situated on Davids family farm in Hendred, Oxfordshire the sheep graze on beautiful parkland grass fields and finished on stubble turnips that form part of the rotation for the arable business.
Both Clare and David continue to look at ways in which to bring both the farm and the farm shop together and continue to strive for more products produced by the farm. This gives us far better control over the quality and consistency of the finished product and also total traceability to our customers.
