About Oldfield Farm


Oldfield Farm is situated between Heswall and Thurstaston, where it used to be known as Heswall-cum-Oldfield, overlooking the Dee Estuary. The farm has been in the family since 1733 when it was purchased by William Hough. The farm is currently run by Sam Johnson in partnership with his mother Mary Johnson (nee Hough). Sam is the eighth generation to farm the land.
Sam is ably helped by Victoria, and possibly the ninth generation of farmers Charlotte and William!

 

 The farm has seen a huge change in farming methods over its time; sometimes we wish our buildings could talk!
As recently as 1950 Sam's, Grandfather, William Hough, was still using horses for field work. Today the horses at Oldfield are all for pleasure and take advantage of our quiet situation and good hacking.
Up until the 1960s Oldfield Farm was one of many dairy farms on the Wirral. Today we are proud that we are still here and farming, although now Suckler Beef.
