My (Richard Hirst) family moved to Ormesby in 1955, and we have farmed here ever since. My father farmed before me, and now the next generation of our children are involved in the farm and all the other enterprises.

The farm grows many crops, provides environmental services has a flock of sheep, a herd of cows, a pig fattening unit, a livery yard and Hirsty’s Family Funpark. I am sure my grandfather would be amazed at the farm now compared to when he bought it!
