Welcome to Orlestone Farm!

The farm is focused on my two loves - Good Food & Tortoises!  

You'll find our Salads & Sourdough stall at local farmers markets.

Orlestone is also secret haven - the perfect place for your tortoise to stay whilst you go on holiday & hibernate under veterinary care.        Emily
