crouchley hall farm

about us

after marrying two of a Cheshire farmer’s daughters over 30 years ago, David and Paul accidentally got involved in agriculture through their father-in-law's normal farming reluctance to let any chance of free labour get away. vaccinating calves, chasing bullocks, penning turkeys, mucking out horses, fixing burst pipes and mending broken fences, generally at short notice and often improperly dressed became their introduction to farming

since that baptism by fire, they have both had full time careers outside farming.
more recently, with the involvement of their wives and children, the family have been developing a new, part-time smallholding on the family farm.
they started off with sheep, on the dubious grounds that no-one knew anything about them, so it was bound to be new and “interesting”.

the family now runs a pedigree flock of Wiltshire Horn sheep, rears occasional pigs, keeps a fluctuating flock of poultry (layers and table birds) and the most recent development (since 2012) being the free-range flock of KellyBronze turkeys in preparation for farmgate sales direct from Crouchley at Christmas – the Labradors just sit and watch.
