what makes...
Greenstead Farm such a special place?

The Greenstead Cafe

Our cafe / restaurant with its rustic surroundings is a must try! Our dedicated team of chefs use a selected group of local suppliers to create an exciting, high quality menu with seasonal recipes and English classics with a modern twist.

The Gift Shop

Our gift shop has an irresistible range of ceramic goods for the home and garden. With our selection of locally produced cakes, biscuits and jams, you will always be able to find a unique gift at Greenstead Farm.

The Post Office

There is no need to visit the local town centre and worry about parking and walking to the Post Office when we have a full range of Post Office services, including free banking for the majority of high street banks, right here!

Greenstead Animal Feeds

Greenstead Animal Feeds has grown and developed since its opening in February 2008, and we now offer a thoroughly diverse range of products. We stock a variety of feed and accessories for horses and pets.

Bab's Barnyard

Bab's Barnyard is a fantastic opportunity for children to get close to the animals, feed them and learn more about their habitats. You may even get the chance to watch Matilda enjoy her mid morning bath - she makes quite a splash!

Carousel (kids clothing and toys)

Carousel Pre-loved Boutique has a fantastic range of both new and pre-loved children's clothes, toys, furniture, maternity wear, baby equipment and textiles!

Country Walks

Using the farm as your base, take in the beautiful Essex countryside on one of our routes - walking as far as Halstead and back if the mood takes you! Be sure to return for a well earned cup of tea and a slice of Phyllis's homemade cake before you head home.

The Barn Nursery School

The nursery school is situated in a newly converted barn at Greenstead Farm and is run by qualified teachers Victoria Percival & Jess Allen who between them have over 25 years' experience teaching and leading Early Years' units within schools.

Our History

Greenstead Farm is still very much a working farm to this day and is owned by Chris Butler and his wife, Tania. The Butler family have been farming in this area for generations and even have links to Whitehall and the Government!
