Turnastone Court Farm

247 acres
Ancient water meadow farm

Gareth and Madeline Boaz - lambing shed Turnastone Court Farm is located in West Herefordshire’s beautiful Golden Valley area. The 247-acre farm borders the River Dore. The majority of it is permanent pasture and it has a unique area of water meadow that has been unploughed for over 400 years.

The CRT purchased Turnastone Court Farm in January 2003 when the ancient meadows were at risk of being turned into potato farms. Local residents contacted us to let us know about the worrying prospects of the farm, and how the wildlife-rich area would be negatively affected. Following a fundraising campaign, we raised the money to buy the farm and allow its wildlife habitats to thrive – which they have! 

Our current tenants, Gareth and Madeline Boaz use the pasture to graze approximately 400 sheep along with a small herd of Hereford cattle.

Based in the heart of cider country, Turnastone would not be complete without an orchard comprising local varieties of apples and pears.

Turnastone Court farm has an excellent converted barn, which can be hired out so family and friends can reconnect with the countryside and stay on this beautiful farm.
