Your event at Shimpling Park 

Shimpling Park Farm is a tranquil, beautiful and inspiring place. We would love you to come and share it with us. We have an ancient woodland, beautiful ponds, a enclosed orchard and a stunning restored barn.

 

 

History

Historical research on the two ancient moated sites at each end of the farm indicated that Shimpling Park Farm was an ancient deer park. The east side of the farm was temporarily reqisitioned as a USAAF airfield in 1943 and many of the wartime features remain.

 

Our Farm

We are John and Alice Pawsey. John’s family have farmed here for four generations, and since 1999 we have farmed organically for our family as well as helping like minded neighbouring farmers who share our passion for soils, the countryside and naturally good food. With a motivated and enthusiastic team we aim to farm leaving our soil in good heart for future generations.
