Kenyon Hall Farm is run by Tod Bulmer and his wife Barbara. Their family has farmed at the site for the past 500 years.

By buying small parcels of land as they became available around the area, and renting land from neighbours, the total size of the farm now exceeds to 500 acres. The farm shop itself launched in 2011, with the couple's youngest son James coming on board as shop manager, while eldest son Simon manages the horticultural side of the business. In the farm shop café you can find a wealth of home made cakes with slices from £3.99 and a pot of tea for £1.99.
