Overtown Farm near Cranham in Gloucestershire is a fully certified Organic farm owned by the National Trust, and lies 970 feet above sea level on the Cotswold escarpment. It overlooks the vale of Gloucester with a wonderful view of the Malvern Hills and the Black Mountains beyond. The farm is run by Martin and Pauhla Whitaker and has been farmed by the Whitaker family for over 50 years.
We have been Soil Association certified organic for over 10 years and specialise in supplying organic lamb and beef from our own home-bred animals. Our prime aim is to supply high-quality meat, with the minimum of wasteful packaging, at a reasonable price, to local people who care about where their food comes from and how it is produced.
Our News page and Blog will keep you up to date with the various happenings on the farm and the picture gallery has lots of photos showing day-to-day life on the farm including lambing time, calving, harvest, the best and worst of weather and the nature and wildlife that we share our home with. You can also join our newsletter mailing list by filling in the Contact us form and back copies of this are available to download from the news page.
