Strickley is an organic dairy farm comprising of 240 acres which has been in the Robinson family for 5 generations. We have a pedigree herd of 100 Dairy Shorthorns plus followers. We have always taken a keen interest in wildlife and conservation and the farm has an ancient oak woodland and a 2 acre wildlife pond, plus many miles of hedgerows. We also host farm visits which are run by my wife Michelle who is a primary school teacher. Farmers and growers are welcome to take their children along on this walk also as Michelle can include a spot of pond/beck dipping in our healthy waterways!
