Due to the awful outbreak of COVID-19 we have had to close our metaphorical doors to all visitors and schools so we have decided to bring the farm to you with a weekly diary on YouTube                "Shimpling Park Farm".

Please subscribe and let us know if there is  anything in particular that you want to see. From all of us at Shimpling Park Farm, stay safe and enjoy your "virtual farm visits"

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.


Educational Visits

Visits to Shimpling Park Farm give pupils an invaluable insight into the countryside, the business of farming and the fun of learning outside the classroom. Time on the farm reinforces every aspect of the curriculum from maths to art, from science to PHSE. Shortlisted for a Bayer award for exceptional farm visits and accredited by CEVAS , the farm visits at Shimpling Park Farm are inspirational, empowering and full of fun for all ages.  


Weddings and Events

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 and Environment

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.
