Farm Description Holly Lodge is a luxury log cabin built in 2004 set within the curtilage of our C16 timber framed farmhouse. It is a diversification enterprise so counteract the farms falling income. The farm is set in a wonderful position overlooking the Severn Valley and between the Malvern and Bredon Hills. We enjoy being able to share our breath taking scenery with our guests. The farm business has been in the family since 1950 and is currently run by David & Sandra Goodwin and their son Tom who joined the partnership last year. The farm has grown over the years and now comprises 630 acres together with 11 acres of woodland. One full time man is employed together with some casual labour at peak times. The main enterprise on the farm is the herd of 150 Friesian milking cows. All of their calves are reared for beef. This usually goes to supply Tesco. The main arable crops are winter barley for consumption by the beef animals and milling wheat for bread making. Forage Maize ( Sweetcorn) and fodder beet are also grown to provide winter feed for the dairy herd. 100 acres of hay are made on Upton Ham which is a very valuable SSSI site. This is mainly sold to horse owners locally. The woodland was purchased in 1995 and the main part of it has been felled and replanted with appropriate species to return it to its original semi ancient natural woodland status.
