Dodgson Wood Open Farm and BBQ

Dodgson Wood is a family-owned business and is the diversified part of Nibthwaite Grange Farm. It is run by John Atkinson (whose family has farmed the site for six generations), and his partner Maria Benjamin. In order for the farm to be future-proof and sustainable, it was necessary to develop micro-businesses to run alongside the farm work. These consist of direct meat sales to private customers and restaurants, selling breeding animals to other farms, and off-grid, eco holidays in three National Trust locations in and around Dodgson Wood. They also set up ‘Shear Delight’ which sells raw fleece, spun and woven wool, and a Jersey milk soap business, ‘The Soap Dairy’.
