The Butler family have been farming at Selborne for 76 years primarily farming hops for brewing and potatoes. The farm is now run along simpler lines growing wheat, oil seed rape, beans, millet and lavender and letting land for vegetable growing – baby spinach and coriander.
Their first diversification in 1989 was to make use of surplus farm buildings, having given up rearing cattle, renting out small workshop and office space known as the Hartley Park Business Centre.
Tim together with his son Simon have converted a barn on the farm as a secure storage facility using the Barn Store identity.
Tim and his wife Anne live on site, as does Simon. Anne runs the very successful English Hampshire Lavender Company distilling the oil from the lavender crop harvested in July and August and converted into their delightful fragrant soaps, oils and sprays which are sold through their shop on the farm as well as at local farmers’ markets. Drivers using the B3006 Liss to Alton road will be familiar with the wonderful sight of the lavender in bloom during June. See www.thelavenderfields.co.uk
Hops are still grown on the farm although no longer for the brewing industry but can be purchased from the farm or farmers’ markets during August and September. Perfect to decorate the farmhouse kitchen and can be found adorning pub beams throughout the area.
We are just outside Selborne village on the B3006 just 5 minutes from Alton off the A31 and 10 minutes from Liss off the A3.
Your help was absolutely great, once again thanks for everything.
Just a few words to say thank you very much for your Barn Store services over the past couple of years. During that time you were always very helpful and considerate and we appreciated that very much.
Thank you for all your friendliness and help while I was moving in – and finding the need for more space – and then moving out! You are lovely to deal with and it is much appreciated. Hugs all round. And thank you too for my lovely lavender treasures!
I have had quite a few containers over the years and you have always organised it straight away for me. Thank you so much for always giving such a great service and when I need another one in the future I will definitely be giving you a call.
It has been a pleasure knowing you, Simon and Carolyn. You have given me complete peace of mind that my belongings are in safe hands. I am so glad that I listened to the recommendation I received to store with you and would not hesitate to recommend that others should do so too.
I would like to thank you for all for all your help over the last 4 years and say I would thoroughly recommend Hartley Park Farm Barn Store to others.
It was lovely doing business with you and I couldn’t have picked a better storage company!
Thank you for your kindnesses and helpfulness for the past 3 ½ years. You and Carolyn helped to make sometimes difficult occasions easier.
Many thanks for being a great company and it has been a pleasure being a customer.
Thanks for all your help over the years.
Simon, you were such a helpful Storage Host over the years. On behalf of the whole family, many thanks to you and your team.
We just wanted to say thanks so much for providing such a brilliant, clean and safe storage facility for our goods. It has been so convenient and so easy to access….. and easy to leave alone knowing that all was secure!
