Organic success for Mary Arden's Farm

Stratford Editorial 17th Sep, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

MARY Arden’s Farm is aiming for success naturally.

The Wilmcote visitor attraction has been selected as a finalist in the Best Organic Farm Visit category in the prestigious 2014 Soil Association Organic Awards. The other finalist in the category is Sheepdrove Organic Farm in Berkshire.

Previously known as the Organic Food Awards, the awards have been showcasing the best in organic for 28 years.

This year sees the inclusion of an online public vote throughout Organic September – a month long celebration of all things organic sprearheaded by the Soil Association.

Mary Arden’s Farm is a real working Tudor farm which offers visitors the chance to experience life on a 16th century farm, just as Shakespeare would have known it when he was a boy visiting his mother’s family home.

Managed organically for the past 12 years, it is a haven for rare breed livestock and wildlife alike. The farm is owned and operated by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

Joe Moore, farm manager at Mary Arden’s Farm, said: “The support from our visitors over the years has been tremendous, and the team truly enjoy getting into character to provide a wonderful hands-on experience of a real working Tudor farm. We hope everyone will get behind us and vote!”
