‘Insects were buzzing, birds were singing, and blooming flowers created colourful swaths across the rolling grassland.’
Northumberland Coast AONB Farming and Land Management Awards for Excellence.  

Hunting Hall is a small, traditional family farm of 278 acres, built on a rise above the Low stream. Beyond the buildings, the Low meanders through organically managed meadows, where sheep graze and native wetland plants grow.  

To look after this traditional farmland we have worked on many award-winning conservation projects, alongside tenant farmer, W L Douglas and Son, and several environmental youth groups. We believe it is tremendously important to help everyone access and enjoy the countryside. You can explore Hunting Hall along our Farm Trail which meanders through fields which are a haven for wildlife, or enjoy an easy walk around the farm’s disabled access footpaths. A hard path leads to a small woodland and pond overlooked by a bird hide, and around the farm’s Community Orchard.

We have created an exciting new Education Programme on the farm and welcome schools, universities and community groups of all ages to come and find out more about farming and wildlife conservation. The Piggery Farm Resource Centre is a wonderful new venue offering a space for classroom facilities, conferences, small events and performances.

Tom keeps a small herd of rare breed pigs, preserving many of the old breeds no longer needed in today's world of intensive production. There is a flock of organic sheep, a few goats and an odd mixture of hens and geese. You may even see a peacock, which makes a very incongruous sight standing on top of the old Ford tractor!
