Jenny has been named among the i-also top 100 inspirational female entrepreneurs 2022.

Jenny has lived in the Old Farm House on the wild and rugged Dalton Moor since 1992.

The house is about 400 years old and the stone barns may be older still.

Jenny bought some land around the house in 2011 and some more in 2015, after watching a huge decline in wildlife due to the intensive farming going on around her.

With her husband Tom and help from Philip, the farm lad, Jenny has restored a diverse habitat across the farm, from land that was previously wide open arable fields.

She has protected the land with fences, reinstated ditches, planted around 6 km of fruitful hedges and thousands of trees, dividing up the land into smaller paddocks to create differing habitats that link together to form a diverse ecosystem that she hopes can sustain itself into the future.

Check out the videos in our Blog about environmental regeneration and rewilding at the farm

From a very young age, Jenny has been fascinated by apples, trees and all things nature.

She has yearned to have an orchard, with all its fruits and wildlife, and also wanted to make 'real' Cider.

She planted her first orchard in 2013 and four more in 2019.

From Apples and other cultivated and foraged fruits and herbs, Jenny makes a range of delicious and unusual Vegan Drinks and preserves.

See our range of Cider, Fruit Juices, Vegan HUNNY and preserves in our SHOP


Jenny is passionate too about sharing knowledge and experience, to bring people closer to nature, to empower them to become more independent, more self-reliant, to live more sustainably and to move away from the heavily dependent, plastic packed, all-consuming, environmentally damaging, emotionally unrewarding, throwaway society that has increasingly become the norm today.

The School of Sustainable Living and Wellbeing offers a range of fun, educational experiences for all ages and abilities.
