Jun 28, 2013


Hazeldene Farm rear native rare breed stock to produce the high quality meat avilable from their farm shop.

Run by Liz and Steve Bateman, the farm is situated in an idyllic setting on the edge of Chesham in Asheridge Vale.

The farm is run on organic principles, all the animals are well cared for and visitors are invited to take a look around the farm and meet the animals.

We run many events at the farm with guided tours so come and join us.

Our web-site is


‘We want to set up and improve our wildlife facilities at the farm including a wildlife walk .

In addition to this we want a person to produce and sell all types of plants, including wild flowers to the public.  We have a couple of shops and a top quality restaurant opening this week so selling plants will Increase the people coming to the farm and encourage those who are here to come again.

My idea is that the plants person will produce and grow as much as they can and we can sell the plants via the shop, we will take a commission and the rest will be for the producer.’

If you are interested please contact Liz or Steve here –
