Sheepdrove farm is located in the beautiful countryside of Lambourn in Berkshire. It is owned by Peter and Juliet Kindersley and is a model of environmentally responsible farming driven by passion and concern for the community, environment and animal welfare.
The Sheepdrove story began over 40 years ago, when Peter and Juliet Kindersley bought a dilapidated farmhouse on the top of the windswept Berkshire Downs to practice their dream of self-sufficiency. Over the years they purchased additional land and have grown Sheepdrove to its current 2,500 acreage.
“Our original aim was to protect ourselves from the polluting chemicals used by farmers all around us and recreate the original Downland landscape that we fell in love with so many years ago. The conversion to organic farming has been an immensely positive experience. We have witnessed the miraculous generosity of nature as the countryside around us has come back to life and, with the return of myriad birds, wild flowers, small mammals, reptiles and insect life, land which was turning into an arid prairie has been transformed to a rich tapestry of wildlife.” Peter Kindersley
