About Frogmary Green Farm
Frogmary Green Farm is an award winning arable & poultry farm in a wonderful setting in the South Somerset countryside.
Having started from a green field site, Nick and Claire have spent the last twenty years growing and diversifying into the business they currently run, although never ones to sit still, they will always have plans to change and grow.
Frogmary Green Farm offers a diverse range of farming & business operations, all of which are intrinsically linked by the same ethos – respect for the environment and sustainable activity.
The farm is host to various events throughout the year that aim to educate, entertain and enlighten guests. There really is something for everyone at Frogmary Green Farm which is the very reason behind our decision to base ourselves here for our Immortal Moondown Weekend.
The whole family will be catered for here, with activities for the children and less able as well as the challenging runs and cycle sportives.
The surrounding footpaths provide some of the most beautiful running opportunities in the area and our sportives will take in the best of the South West.
Somerset is a historic county in the south west of England.
Following the Roman Empire’s invasion of southern Britain, the mining of lead and silver in the Mendip Hills provided a basis for local industry and commerce. During the Early Medieval period Somerset was the scene of battles between the Anglo-Saxons and first the Britons and later the Danes. In this period it was ruled first by various kings of Wessex, and later by kings of England. Following the defeat of the Anglo-Saxon monarchy by the Normans in 1066, castles were built in Somerset.
Expansion of the population and settlements in the county continued during the Tudor and more recent periods. Agriculture and coal mining expanded until the 18th century, although other industries declined during the industrial revolution. In modern times the population has grown, particularly in the seaside towns, notably Weston-super-Mare. Agriculture continues to be a major business, if no longer a major employer because of mechanisation. Light industries are based in towns such as Bridgwater and Yeovil. The towns of Taunton and Shepton Mallet manufacture cider.
The cycling in Somerset is second to none, with challenging hills and technical descents as well as glorious countryside lanes and views to make you forget your pain!
