Great Ness Oil
Producers of the finest Shropshire Rape seed Oil, Great Ness Farm is situated in the heart of Shropshire, enjoying a stunning location adjacent to Nesscliffe with uninterrupted views to the surrounding hills, Wenlock Edge,The Wrekin, the Breiddens, Long Mountain and the Stretton Hills.
The Warner family has farmed in this idyllic area for three generations totalling more than 57 years. "We are actively aware of the responsibility of having stewardship of this magnificent site and have always farmed with the environment close to our hearts using only the minimum amount of chemicals and fertilisers wishing to preserve the natural balance.
It goes without saying therefore the growing of genetically modified crops has no place at Great Ness."
The farm has been expanded from 132 acres in 1949 to 1100 acres to date. It is a specialist arable farm cropping wheat, oilseed rape, fodder beet and potatoes.
During the last 17 years or so,around 5 acres of traditional woodland have been planted, accompanied by almost two miles of mixed hedgerows, these projects, coupled with the creation of six pools or wetland areas within the farm have succeeded in reinforcing the natural habitat for the indigenous local wildlife.
