Horsell’s Farm Enterprises was established in 1999 by us, Sophie and Roger Scruton. We were keen to play our part in reviving the rural economy. We had acquired a run-down sheep-farm, and a few unprofitable animals, and were acutely aware of the need to bring urban income into the rural landscape if our countryside is to survive. Horsell’s Farm Enterprises was designed to supply this need. The small farms round about us were struggling in the business of turning grass into meat and milk. The solution, we saw, was to turn grass into ideas, which could be sold down the internet into the urban market, so bringing profit to the farm.
We are looking ahead to the future and next year we would like to open Sundey Hill Farm to school groups and build on our Summer School profile with the hope of becoming a year round farm education centre. We have been taking inspiration from the organisation LEAF. Your thoughts and suggestions are welcome. Please do not hesitate to be in touch if you would like to visit!
