We are Mark and Hannah Terry
We live on the farm with our two children, Ollie 7 and Ebony aged 3. Mark runs the farm with his dad and Hannah runs the shepherds huts and home schools son Ollie.
Hawes Farm has been in the Terry family for three generations. Last year (2015) we realised we needed to diversify in order to keep the farm running. Having shepherds huts to rent out to share the special areas on our farm seemed the perfect option. Little did we know that we would be met with fierce opposition from the Local Planning Authority. Thankfully to the Committee on the evening of 4 August we won 10 against 2. We had secured the future of our farm!
Our farm is currently in a transitional period from conventional farming to pesticide free, eventually moving to organic status.
