New Farm is situated in the small village of Elmhurst that is 2.5 miles from the city of Lichfield. The city has 4 big supermarkets and many smaller shops, post office, banks, bus and train stations, sport and leisure facilities and a large Cathedral stands high above the city of Lichfield and you will find this small town a pleasant and friendly place. Our central location makes it easy to travel to many places for shopping and to visit places of interest.
We specialise in growing strawberries, raspberries and asparagus selling direct to supermarkets, markets, catering and from our own Farm Shop.
Our main farm is at Elmhurst, near Lichfield but we grow our crops on a number of satellite sites in the area. Our cropping area exceeds 100 ha.
Our produce is harvested between April and November, weather and crop permitting. A good percentage of our crops are grown under plastic tunnels, therefore rain does not effect the crop. The labour requirements of the farm are assessed on a daily basis and for reasons of crop, weather and customer demand, work cannot be promised at any time or offered for more than one day at a time. You are not obliged to take any work which may be offered.
If you choose to work at New Farm, you will be employed as a casual worker. We can also provide work through out the year for selected people.
