The Apley Farm Shop was developed in March 2011 from old farm buildings at Stockton on the Apley Estate, owned & managed by the Hamilton family. The sympathetic restoration was undertaken acknowledging & preserving the buildings’ features, history & heritage. The Estate is the epitome of rural English splendour. Shropshire boasts rolling hills, big skies, grazing cattle, wild flowers, birds of prey & the River Severn, which all provide a magnificent backdrop for the Estate.
Since the late Lord Hamilton inherited the Estate in 1980, the Hamilton family has been maintaining & restoring the Estate’s buildings, ponds, streams, roads, woods & farmland. As part of the diversification programme to restore old farm buildings, there are now offices & beautiful residential dwellings to let. Apley Farm Shop’s Pigg’s Playbarn has solar panels & the whole Apley Farm Shop site is heated by a wood chip boiler. These form part of an ongoing renewable energy programme that encourages self-sufficient, environmentally-friendly power generation using wood from the Estate.
