About Us

In August 2006 Ian Steele returned to the family farm from working in London and abroad in the Petrochemical Industry. So began a journey to revitalise a small scale, hillside farm in the family since 1904. The aim was to prove that small scale agriculture can indeed be environmentally aware, promote biodiversity and remain viable in the modern world.

Today Treflach Farm:

  • Is an employer both on the farm outside Oswestry, Shropshire where we look after the land, animals, run courses & make the pies, and in Hatfield, Herts for delivering into London and the SE

  • Is a real working farm with free range animals

  • Operates a butchery and bakery

  • Distributes food products on behalf of national award winning chefs & food producers

  • Works with young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities

  • And much more…

All funded through the sale of our #tastypies!
