Our Farm Produce

Find out all about Ballingham Farm and our story here...

Everyone these days is concerned about food miles and where their food comes from, but at Castle House that doesn't worry us at all. That's because produce that appears on Claire Nicholls' menus originates whenever possible from the excellent local produce available in Herefordshire.

We feel very much part of the county's tradition for great food. My own farm, Ballingham Hall, is just eight miles from the Hotel. Built in 1602, it has been in my family for 130 years. I farmed here with my father and grandfather, and now run the business with my son George. We are passionate about what we do, and about British farming, so you can be sure that what arrives on your plate is the very best from Herefordshire and the Marches. It might even come from the farm where we produce Herefordshire beef or our extensive kitchen garden where we grow fruit, herbs and vegetables.

Ballingham Hall and its gardens is a spectacular venue that can be yours for exclusive use private parties, corporate events and weddings, and it's the perfect location for a unique event in the heart of the county. We even have our own church!

We'd love to show you round the farm. Please ask at reception and we'll make all the necessary arrangements.
