Sustainable Forestry In Cheshire

We are a family-run business, running two farmsteads in the local area between Chester and Ellesmere Port, near the village of Dunham-on-the-Hill. On the farm itself we have diversified significantly over the years, from an arable farm, with some livestock, to firewood, equestrianism, and sustainable forestry in Cheshire.





Farming and foresting for 60+ years

Our family has been cultivating the land around Cheshire since the 1960s, growing wheat and barley, and raising livestock, including sheep, beef, and dairy cattle. We have established ourselves in the rural Cheshire community as reliable, hard-working agricultural specialists, and are always looking for ways to diversify our land to meet a new demand. From sustainable forestry in Cheshire, to raising goats, free-range chickens, and horses, we have seen and done it all over the years, and fully intend to keep doing so for the decades to come.

Covert Place Farm

Our home farm, this delightful, peaceful setting is where we coordinate our sustainable forestry in Cheshire, as well as our farming endeavours. On this farm we raise goats, horses, dogs, cats, and chickens, and it has a real old-fashioned farmyard feel. You are welcome to come down and visit, and pickup your firewood logs here by appointment.
