The Farm

Wheatacre Hall Barns are set amongst the family owned farm of the Burroughs family which are third and fourth generation farmers within the Wheatacre and Aldeby area.

The farm consists of 1100 acres including a pedigree milking herd of 400+ cows plus their offspring and 12,000 free range laying hens. We also have eight Luxury Norfolk cottages of superior quality that we rent out for holidays and short breaks.

Arable crops grown on the farm are Wheat, Barley, Oilseed Rape, Seed Potatoes and Maize/grass for livestock feed.

The farms are situated in an attractive part of South Norfolk surrounded by the River Waveney.

Our Farm in Norfolk

Different enterprises on the farm are audited under many schemes thus assuring quality produced foods at all times.

Milk is produced for a Arla and some local businesses. We also bottle our own milk which can be purchased from the office, this is Raw milk and unpasteurised, we do also sell pasteurised milk, locally produced ice cream and yogurts.
Visits to the milking parlour are available to view the afternoon milking or morning if you wish to rise for a 4am start!!

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our week in Snipe and Woodcock Barns  –  it was one of the best holidays we have had.  It was so lovely for our three families to spend time together and especially for the children to have all that space to play, and to have the facilities of the games barn and your amazing stock of toys and videos.  We had some great times on Lowestoft and Southwold beaches, the local swimming pool and the Big Dog ferry trip. Thank you very much
