Situated halfway along a valley, our farm enjoys stunning views of true Hardy Country, where both sea and sun are close at hand thanks to Weymouth having more sunny days than anywhere else in the UK.
The Farm and Surroundings
We are the Bartlett family: Martin, Joby and children Henry, Annabel and Georgina and we work in partnership with Martin's parents Tom and Sheila, running a beef suckler herd, raising young dairy cattle for a neighbouring farmer, and growing a variety of crops.
East Shilvinghampton is situated halfway along the south side of a valley that stretches from Portesham and Upwey, and enjoys stunning, far-reaching views along the valley in either direction.
The tents are arranged in the pasture near the farmyard, with our animal paddock and its residents just a toddle away. The hedges here yield abundant fruit in the autumn, including sloes, which the successful forager can take home to prepare a fine gin for Christmas!
The farm larder is well stocked with our own beef and pork and Joby’s home-made goodies, as well as lots of local produce, most of it sourced within a 20 mile radius, even beer, wine, coffee and tea!
The farm tour is always a great hit with our guests feeding pigs, goats and calves; Martin tries to answer every question you can think of about farming.
Pets are welcome at East Shilvinghampton as long as they're kept under close control.
At the farm there are plenty of animals to meet, including our beef suckler herd; chickens; Labradors Tess and Ora; pet goats Trit and Trot; Pit, Pat and Paddle the ducks; our son Henry's pigs; and Pippin and Dizzy, the ponies belonging to our two daughters Georgina and Annabel.
After all this socialising, tuck into a hearty feast of Joby's famed home cooking, including delicious meals using beef and pork from the farm. Puddings are her speciality, especially her meringue roulade!
