about us

The Wheaton family moved to Slamseys in 1967, having previously farmed at Freebournes in Witham (just opposite the building that is now the library) and when Phil and Pam Wheaton retired in the 1990s, their son Bill and his wife Anne took over the running of the farm. Bill has continued to farm the land and they have built up the Christmas tree sales that Phil started from the back door of the farmhouse over thirty years ago and introduced livery stables and caravan storage. 
2012 sees the start of the next generation joining the family farm with Beth planting fruit for her new drinks company and Ruth making plans for bringing art to the farm. Follow our farm blog to see how the plans progress.
