Hooters Hall

Home

Welcome to Hooters Hall our six acre smallholding in the fens, on the border of Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire.

We’re Kim and Chris and we’ve been smallholders since 2011 when we moved to Hooters Hall from South London.

After nine successful years of mixed smallholding and fibre farming we are now taking Hooters Hall in a new direction.

In Spring 2020 we decided to move away from traditional smallholding and instead start managing our land solely for nature. We began by rewilding our garden, creating a wildflower meadow, planting 500 willow trees and adding more native flowers to our woodland. 

Craft, particularly handspinning, natural dyeing and weaving, has always been an important part of what we do at Hooters Hall and as we take our smallholding in this new direction we want to change how we think about craft and go beyond the making of a product or the sharing of skills. So we’re going to be exploring the practice of mindfulness in craft together with the benefits craft and connecting with nature has for wellbeing. You can read more on our mindful making page and visit our meadow meditations page to enjoy a few minutes of natural calm.
