Instone Court is a family farm on the Herefordshire/Worcestershire border. Sidney Parker bought the farm in 1919 and later established S. J. Parker and Son which is still trading today under the careful hands of his grandson Simon Parker and his wife Elaine.
As a traditional Herefordshire farm we grow hops (our passion), cider fruit and Bramleys along with more unusual cobnuts and soft fruit. We have woodland free-range laying hens and run pedigree Ryeland and commercial sheep flocks.
Simon has inherited the Parker love for hops. As chairman of the British Hop Association and director of Hawkbrand Hops Ltd, Simon has a passion for developing new hops for exciting flavours.
Our latest venture is the installation of an on farm vending machine offering farm fresh produce 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
