Customer Car Parking

We have ample car parking for our customers, including designated family and disabled parking spaces. However, if you are visiting us as a large group and arriving in separate cars, we do advise you to contact us in advance so that we can make arrangements for your parking or guide you accordingly.

Farm Deliveries

We are located in the heart of the Staffordshire countryside, which means that narrow roads and low bridges can be a challenge for local suppliers with very large vehicles.

If you are using a high-sided vehicle, please note you may need to avoid the nearby low railway bridge (11ft 9”) and plan your route to approach our Farm from the Tixall direction. We have marked the low railway bridge on the map below and you can see it on our photo above , but please do give us a call if you need any further advice.
