We are Will and Sammy King and we would love to show you the other side of Essex at Feather Down’s latest farm - an Essex full of seductive wildness and painterly landscapes, all just a stone’s throw from London.

The fourth generation at Malting farm, Will’s great-grandfather bought the land just after World War One, and we now run it with Will’s parents, Brian and Judy. The name comes from the 19th century malting, where malt was produced for brewing. We still grow the spring barley needed, along with wheat, oil seed rape, potatoes and maize for forage but the centre piece of the farm are our 200 head of cattle. They arrive here when they are a few weeks old, then we rear them on milk and take them through to 24 months.

We are very keen to integrate you into our daily life so our tour with you will incorporate feeding the pigs and calves whilst horse grooming will be on tap at our 20 stable livery yard. Sheep will safely graze by the tents along with the usual Feather Down menagerie of chickens, pigs and ducks.

You won’t believe how secluded it feels here considering how accessible we are. One hour from north London and five minutes off the main trunk road to Harwich, visitors from Holland could even cycle here off the ferry!
