Farrantshayes is cared for and owned by Emma and Jon Hillier. Emma is a secondary English and Media teacher, who has been 'at the chalkface' for fifteen years, but is taking a break from teaching to complete an M.A in Creative Writing. She also works as a tour leader for Farmlink, a charity which aims to get children onto farms and learning to appreciate where their food comes from. Jon is a building surveyor by trade, with an interest in conservation/restoration work and property development. Cocker spaniels Rusty and his daughter Ebony complete the team- they live for affection, food and trips out to the pub!
We are fortunate to be only twenty five minutes from Exeter city centre by car and twenty minutes from the beach at Sidmouth. We are in the middle tier of the Countryside Stewardship programme, with a focus on natural grassland and hedgerow management. We sell small amounts of our home reared pork and beef to family and friends so check out the 'produce' page if you'd like to buy some Farrrantshayes meat. We also offer half day 'Introduction to Smallholding' courses, where you can spend some time on the farm, meet the animals and learn from our very many hilarious mistakes!
