Godminster was born of a passion for organic farming and wildlife conservation. Ever since Richard Hollingbery bought Godminster Farm in 1993, he and his team have been pursuing an environmentally friendly and ethical approach to farming. Their approach incorporates the organic principles to the land and the livestock. There have been people living and working the land at Godminster, in Bruton, Somerset, for over 5 centuries. Records show that there has been a dairy farm here for over 100 years. Since Richard bought the 600-acre farm, there have been projects for woodland creation and to support wildlife. Godminster has become an integral business in Bruton and part of the renaissance of the town.
