The family farm is where it all began – after all, no one knows how to cook a good honest meal like a farmer’s wife! From humble beginnings in 2000, we have grown an amazing team, including talented chefs & passionate gardeners who have made The Ferry House a very special place. Menus showcasing our family-farmed beef, free range game birds & the veggies, fruit & herbs grown in our extensive Kitchen Gardens make us proud to call the Ferry House our home. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
