Village Farm is a delightful dairy farm which is now in it’s fourth generation of the Dixon family.

Set in the rambling Leicestershire countryside, the farm has an impressive dairy herd, selling high quality milk direct to Long Clawson Dairy for Stilton cheese.  There are ample footpaths to explore the 450 acres of arable and grazing land. The farm is in the Natural England High Level Scheme for hedges, ponds and boundaries which enhances the wild life and environmental features. The ridge and furrow fields, dew ponds and evidence of Roman settlements all add to the history and charm of Village Farm.

In 2016 Village Farm received the ‘Energy Now’ Award for the Best Ground Source Heat Pump Scheme. Renewable energy is also produced from the shed mounted PV panels and two wind turbines, some electricity of which is used to power our glamping lodges, Barleyleas and Coathills.
