A Brief History

Woollett Hall was originally a mixed livestock farm and has Grade 1 soil which is ideal for growing vegetables.

 

The Kelsey family has farmed in the area since the early 1800s and purchased Woollett Hall Farm in 1955. The cropping was changed to field scale vegetables and in 1966 (after 11 years of successful arable farming), the family decided to open a shop to sell its produce to the public, converting the cattle yard for the purpose.

 

In 2005, Bill and Andree took over, representing the 8th generation of family farmers on the land. They grew the farm shop business to draw in supplies from other local farms to increase the distribution of locally grown fruit and vegetables.

 

To provide a further service to local families, Bill and Andree converted one of the barns into "Crayzee Barn" a popular indoor adventure play area with facilities for 0 to 10 year olds. This diversification was supported by a DEFRA RES Grant.

In 2014, the Kelseys re-launched Kelsey's Farm Shop in a brand new, purpose built eco-friendly facility. This fabulous development now houses the farm shop and deli, Harvel House Farm Butchers plus a fully licensed cafe restaurant serving fresh home cooked meals and snacks daily.
