For five generations, the Wynne Family have lived and farmed in Hope under Dinmore.
In 1986 Bryan and (myself) Ann Wynne married and shortly after, the farm changed direction from milk production to free range eggs producers and pig farmers.
As with any business, there will always be a requirement to change with the times or ‘diverse’ and farming is no different.
By the late 1980’s as ‘Wynne’s of Dinmore, we sold our eggs directly to shops, hotels, restaurants as well as direct to the public at farmers markets. This developed so much so that we even began winning awards! From “The Flavours of Herefordshire” to a mention in Rick Stein’s “Food Heroes” book.
By 2004 we had 15,000 free range hens and 3000 pigs, a wholesale business, a farm shop and a supportive family with our two daughters to top it off.
In 2005 Wynne’s began manufacturing poultry housing to become a complete “one stop shop” for poultry keepers, providing the hens, feed, housing, equipment, supplies and free advice.
Unfortunately in 2007 due to illness, Wynnes as we knew it, had to change direction somewhat; selling the wholesale business and dramatically reducing the number of livestock.
When 2009 came around – after such a gruelling period, we had managed to pick ourselves up and continue expansion of the retail business, now stocking a wider range of poultry, animal housing and supplies – and we even had our first small herd of goats!
November 28th 2015 we moved from our humble farm shop into the Country Store you see today.
Outside we have an ever increasing range of animals for view and sale from seasonal chicks & ducklings, to pygmy goats and kids plus more and of course the Point of Lay poultry we have available all year round.
Inside there are wide ranges of items and products – finding something for all the family.
We welcome you to visit our Country store and wonder around the variety of livestock we have on show.
All we ask is that you do not touch the animals (for health & safety reasons) as we are not a petting farm, but every one of our residents love visitors! Please do not enter any field where the gate is closed or has a no entry sign.
Finally, please ensure that children are supervised at all times.
If you have any questions please speak to any member of staff: Roxy, Michelle, Elaine, Bryan or Myself.
We hope you enjoy your visit here at Wynnes and we thank you for taking the time to read and get to know us!
From Ann, Bryan and all at Wynnes of Dinmore
