Our aim is to support our family in as self sufficient and sustainable way as possible, we run a small scale family business, only selling products we have used ourselves and animals we have experience in keeping.
We now have many breeds of poultry, along with beehives and small families of ducks, rabbits, pigs, geese and goats.
We specialise in Poultry, selling everything you need to keep chickens yourelves.
We welcome you to come and have a look at the animals, browse our shop or ask our advice.
We are happy to talk you you and encourage you to try this special way of life, either by enjoying the pleasures of keeping livestock, growing your own food or by simnply buying local produce.
We hope we can show you that you dont need a farm to keep animals, any reasonable sized garden can be home to a few hens for really fresh eggs, a hive for bees for honey and only a small pig paddock is needed for your own tasty pork.

About our service:
"CHICKEN TRIPPERS" Poultry Boarding Since 2007
Mantel Farm's chicken boarding service was first established in 2007,and has quickly grown to include other small animals.
We consider ourselves to have been the first to offer this chicken service in the UK.
Bringing your animals to board with us means leaving your well loved family pets, or smallholding flock in capable hands.
We have a dedicated area in our barn for our animal boarding, with various sized pens to suit your requirements.
Your chickens or pets will be housed in their own adequately sized pen, which is totally secure from predators, being located within the walls of our main poultry barn.
Animal boarding bookings are charged per animal, per night, as listed below:
For stays longer than 16 nights, or for large amounts of animals please contact us for a quote. (minimum charge: £25)
Why not grab that break that you've needed so much, safe in the knowledge that your birds will be well cared for?
Our training courses are held on our farm and include evening and weekend sessions for both the beginner or experienced beekeeper, chicken keeping courses and handling demonstrations with health checks, and other general smallholding related courses.
We will always encourage others to be as self sufficient and sustainable as possibe, and this includes keeping livestock where possible. Our courses are here to help and through these sessions, in our shop or through our website and blog we are happy to talk to you and share our experiences and advice.

"Definitely the best poultry suppliers in the area. Huge range of stock and equipment. Beautifully clean and tidy. Very knowledgeable young staff. I am hard to impress having worked in the farming/equine industry all my life ... So much hard work goes into keeping the livestock here. Fabulous place. Very impressed."

"Found great help on our first visit to set up all we needed for our three hens that are very happy and have been laying eggs daily. We recommend the Mantel Farm team for all their great advice and knowledge on hand."

"If you need help, food or any equipment related to chicken keeping, Kerry & Jason at Mantel Farm are, without doubt, the people to see. More interest too with bees, goats, ducks and rabbits for adults and children to enjoy."
Roger & Jenny on 7 December 2014
"I was extremely satisfied with the free standing perches which were very well made and they are very stable."
Jennifer D on 7 October 2016
"I ordered my chickens on-line, which was easy. When I visited mantle farm I got to chose the chickens I wanted, they were skilfully caught with a bit of clucking and flapping, the advice they gave was encouraging, and I was impressed with their positive and warm welcome, THANKYOU mantel farm for our beautiful stunning chickens, Rey, Colin and Keith, (all girls......don't ask)"
Chicken Q on 5 July 2016
"I recently went on the Introduction to Chicken Keeping Course which Jason kindly combined with the handling course. Although it's a two hour trip from London, the course is excellent. The owners are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and fun. For anyone thinking about getting some chickens, the course is a must. To also see how beautifully kept everything is and see the equipment needed at close quarters rather than on a web-site is great. The course is exceptional value. Thanks again,"
Adrienne Eastwood on 20 September 2016
"Fantastic people who DO know their stuff.
We have 5 ducks and four hens and they have been 'guests' at Mantel Farm since 2012 every time we have a holiday.
We have their wings clipped and advise is always reliable and backed up with experience.
Jason and Kerry clearly love their job and care for our very much loved pets as they would their own.
I have no hesitation in recommending them. Our boys and girls are always happy on drop off and pick up - and we'd know if they weren't!
The pens are scrupulously clean and can't be faulted.
Sarah Skerman on 2 September 2016
"The team down at Mantel Farm are just fabulous! Great chooks, great customer service, nothing too much trouble. They are so helpful with their patient advice giving as well. (I ask a lot if questions!) We board our ladies there too when we go away and know they are well taken care of.
Its worth the drive from TWells for me as its one stop shopping and the kids love to check out all the chooks, roosters and other animals too!"
