Easter 2015

We have available this Easter our famous free-range ducks, guinea-fowl and chickens.  They can be ordered here on the website or by phoning Simon on 07968 148 896



Great Clerkes Farm is a free-range poultry farm in North Essex.  Chickens, guinea fowl, geese, ducks and pheasant are all reared on the farm. To keep up to date with our news, click below. 


The most famous farmer in Essex?

As well as running the farm, nursing his wayward family, captaining The Sampfords cricket team and producing the odd work of contemporary artwork, somehow Simon Hughes finds the time to appear on various televisual programmes connected to quality food production - any celebrity chef of calibre wants a connection with Great Clerkes Farm.  In April of this year Brian Turner and Janet Street-Porter came to the farm to record a program about Guinea-fowl farming in the East of England.  The photo above shows them cooking a delicious casserole outside the farm house (Janet is the one without the (bushy) moustache).
