About us

Cliftons Farm has been the home of the Parkinson family since 1967.  We are a family run farm which is situated in the picturesque village of Inglewhite.  We are 2 miles south of Beacon Fell Country Park, which is in the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Although we are in the rural Lancashire countryside, we are still only about 7 miles from Preston city centre and only 4 miles from the motorway (M6, J32).

Cliftons Farm was the first certified organic family dairy farm in the north of England.

The farm is currently run by the youngest son Thomas Parkinson, together with his wife Iris.
Mr Parkinson senior, although retired still helps out occasionally.

What we do

Besides having a milking herd of certified organic Jersey and some Jersey crossbred cows, we also keep some male calves for beef. We have our own butchery on site. This way our customers can order exactly the kind of cut they’d like to have when an animal is ready to go in.  We also keep organic free range hens for eggs.

We also have a fruit orchard where we grow some fruit.

Any excess of fruit will be sold in our farm shop. We only sell items that are produced here on the farm. We do not buy in any items for re-sale.

We also have a local delivery service in some areas of the North West and a courier delivery service that covers England, Wales and Scotland.

If you are interested in buying some of our products or if you want to know more about us,  you can contact us by phone or via our contact page. Please be aware that we might not always be in to take your call;

As some of our products are seasonal or limited in availability it’s worth contacting us before coming to the farm. So we can get your order ready and update you with what we have in stock.

Please be aware that this is a working farm and although we will attend to you as soon as possible be prepared to wait a few minutes for us to serve you at busy times.
