We wanted to get back in touch to remind everyone that walkers and family units are welcome to walk, pray or worship on the farm during the summer, if they maintain the rules of social distancing. We believe the farm has a valuable role to play in sustaining community, mental health and connection to God and nature during this incredibly challenging time.

If you are dog walking, please respect the countryside code, pick up after your dog, and ensure that your dog is kept under control near the livestock. 

Also, please respect the wild flowers and fruit – which cannot be picked unless clearly marked during the harvest season or by arrangement.   All bluebells, primroses, plants, flowers and blossoms must remain at the farm and cannot be picked without permission.

Since the 18th March 2020, in response to the crisis, kept the farm open to healthy and responsible walkers from dusk till dawn. And until this crisis passes please could we ask you not come to the farm at all if you are self-isolating for either 7 or 14 days.

Stampwell Farm is a beautiful and historic privately owned farm, with orchards, livestock and wildlife sanctuaries, situated on the outskirts of Beaconsfield.  Though it is of Saxon origin, joined by ancient Bridleways to London and Oxford, it became more prosperous in the Eighteenth century as a fruit farm delivering fresh plums and cherries to the London markets.

The intervening years were not so kind and after the second world war the farm struggled to adapt the orchards and fields to modern farming techniques, and for a few years diversified into small-holdings of chickens, sheep and pigs, but it fell into disrepair by the early 1990s. In 2012 it was purchased by Frog and Amy Orr-Ewing and soon also became home to the community of Latimer Minster, and the neglected farm began to live again – fences put up, rubbish removed, and several barns repaired for their new life serving the needs of agriculture, church, charity and wider community.

The farm comprises  approximately 70 acres of farmland, divided between fields, forests, grazing, wildlife sanctuary and orchards.  We host the Stampwell Apiary (CBS) with a collection of beehives, a small flock of sheep, donkeys, chickens, bantams and two small market gardens and several raised beds.

The farm is enjoyed regularly by many community events and partners, education, health, clubs and families using our many facilities.

Also, the last few years the Farm has been at the forefront of developing holistic grazing techniques, and the restoration of the environment – enhancing the ecosystem, encouraging wildlife as well as bringing agriculture back into production.
