Due to the Corona-virus Pandemic and the site is closed during the week, but our shop is open for limited hours between 12:00 pm and 2:00 pm.

The Farm Shop

The Straw Bale Farm Shop stock fruit and vegetables grown on the farm when they are in season. We also stock local, healthy and ethical products wherever possible.

The Care Farm

Our care farm has been established for over three years now and offers placements that centre around the meaningful activities of our working farm.

Our Animals

The animals have a very special place on our farm. 

Food Growing

Growing food at Greenslate Farm has always been on the agenda. The farm was started by Billinge and Orrell Transition Group and one of the aims of the movement is to make the local community more resilient and self sufficient.
