Our history; The farm was purchased by our great grandfather Tom Walling back in 1948. During the post war period, farming enjoyed good times and the countryside was a thriving place to live and work. However, since the late 1970’s it has taken a bit of a battering from one thing and another. Incomes have fallen and farms have had to increase in size and specialise in order to survive.
The need to diversify and adapt continues today and here at Wallings we have always worked hard to remain ahead of the game in order to provide a sustainable business model in a rural setting. The farm is still a working farm and a valuable part of our family business.
Three generations of the Walling family currently operate this working Lancashire dairy farm, providing employment for local people, playing a vital role for the local economy.
