Richard & Inger Mee,Oakley Grange Farm,Shepshed Road,Hathern, Leicestershire, LE12 5LL 

Farm Background: We are a mixed organic farm of approximately 660 acres , organic since 2001. Our main enterprises are beef, sheep, pigs and arable. We have been farming under an environmental scheme since 2003, first we had a CSS agreement and now have signed up for a HLS, where we have a vast area of flower margins and half the land managed for breeding and over wintering waders in the Soar Valley. We produce our own animal feed and grow all cereals and pulses for both pigs and cattle.  We have recently converted an old barn into a cafe/farm shop, where we use as many of our own products as possible.

Attendance is free but advanced booking is absolutely essential. We will send out directions prior to the walk.
