Location: Church Lane, Thurstaston, Wirral, Mersyside Postcode: CH61 0HW

Church Farm is a family run business that grows fruit and vegetables for sale in the farm shop. There is the Much Café serving local, organic and seasonal meals and snacks. Lavender is grown in a lavender maze and is harvested in the summer. The farm keeps a small flock of hens, ducks and geese and is also home to highland cows, sheep, goats and kune kune pigs. The farm is experienced in hosting school visits and is a Soil Association demonstration farm.

The farm offers a range of packages linked to food and farming; ‘Church farm fun’, ‘Church Farm helpers’, ‘Church farm harvester helpers’, ‘Church farm spring planting and autumn harvest’. They include tractor rides, feeding animals to caring for them and giving them fresh bedding to harvesting seasonal crops in the field. In the summer strawberries can be picked along with Lavender from the lavender maze.
