The Hooters Hall story started in August 2011 when we made the move from South London to our 6 acre smallholding in Lincolnshire.
The name Hooters Hall comes from the original family farm in Staffordshire owned by my husband Chris' great grandfather.
We started off our smallholding raising rare breed pigs ( British Lop and Gloucestershire Old Spot ). We breed and raise our pigs at Hooters hall and we have our own butchery where we make our sausages and burgers with home grown, slow grown rare breed pork.
We also have a flock of Jacob sheep and a herd of Angora goats. I started off spinning my own fleeces and quickly became interested in handspinning super bulky, super chunky yarns for knitting and weaving.
As well as knitting I love making handsewn quilts using fabric dyed with natural plant dyes some of which I grow at Hooters Hall.
When I'm not shepherding my sheep & goats you can find me in the polytunnel or forest garden growing fruit, vegetables and herbs.
