Welcome to Little Morton Farm

Little Morton Farm is a small family farm based in North Wingfield, Chesterfield, Derbyshire specialising in Keeping Pigs, Pig Arks and supplying Chickens. Run by Tom Beckingham and his family, the main objective of Little Morton Farm is food production of the highest quality, with the dream of being totally self sufficient. Our time on the farm has been both challenging and rewarding, and our experience enables us to help many people who share our dream: from starting with chickens to creating the complete smallholding, we have plenty of advice and support to offer.  

Little Morton Farm is home to Poplar Poultry, which after many years has become a leading poultry supplier throughout Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire, supplying chickens, chicken feeds, chicken housing and chicken keeping supplies in fact everything you may need to start with chickens or keep your established flock of birds happy and healthy. Originally established as a result of Toms passion for this addictive hobby it is his passion and commitment that makes both Poplar Poultry and Little Morton Farm what it is today. Wherever he can he will always try to help both new chicken keepers and established keepers with lots of help and advice.

Little Morton Farm is an established supplier of pig arks, animal arks and pig keeping supplies including organic feeds so if you are thinking of starting with pigs then we are here to help.

Little Morton Farm has been manufacturing a range of quality pigs arks for the past 10 years and have supplied them throughout England and Wales. We have also put together and stock a comprehensive range of pig keeping supplies which we find essential in the day to day care of our own herd of pedigree Berkshire pigs.

                                        Weekly / Fortnightly Updates from Tom:

Little Morton Farm has been a hive of activity this year up to now.  We've had lambs, calves and piglets born which are all growing really well.  We have welcomed two new members to the team Ryan our apprentice on the farm and Trevor in the butchery helping us us to continue to serve our loyal customer base.  Within the butchery we are now offering a smallholders butchery service (more coming soon on this).  

The farm shop is fully stocked with all of our lovely produce including our lovely 28 day aged Blonde beef  and our New ranges - Free Range chicken sausages, lamb Merguez sausages as well as our range of chicken, beef and pork kebabs, quick fry pepper steaks and 1/4 pound beef burgers - perfect for your summer BBQ! 

We have a lovely selection of chickens available, including four new hybrids - Millefleurs Leghorn(white egg layer), Golden Cuckoo(brown egg layer), Poplar Splash(brown egg layer) and the York Blue(blue egg layer).available for July and August.  Our last batch of the Copper Marans are currently 10 weeks old and we are taking orders for these so please get in touch if you are interested.

Hopefully we are going to enjoy a lovely warm summer but remember your chickens need plenty of fresh water, allow up to 1litre per bird per day especially during hot days and remember weekly applications of DE powders to prevent any red mite.

If we can be of any help please get in touch, Tom
