Old Sleningford Farm is smallholding 5 miles north of Ripon in rural North Yorkshire.
Our aim is to demonstrate a low impact way of life and to inspire self reliance through sharing ideas and resources.
We were the winners of the Friends of Nidderdale AONB Conservation Award 2009.
What We Do
Rent a 17 acre field and a building on the farm
Run courses, events, volunteer workdays and WWOOF weeks
Raise pigs, sheep, chickens, bees and occasionally geese and turkeys
Grow food in our Forest Garden, raised beds and polytunnel
Press loads of apples! Details of our pressing days are released in mid August and information can be found on the Courses and Events page
We welcome group visitors by arrangement, individual visitors are welcome to come on one of our regular workdays, we regret we are unable to show individuals around the farm.
