The farm (Photo left) is set in the Staffordshire Moorlands off the A523 road between Rudyard and Rushton Spencer,close to the borders of Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire.
 
Fairboroughs Farm has a history stretching back to 1230 when it was mentioned in the history of a local Monastery. It has Grade 2 listed status.

------------
After the dissolution of the monastery in the late 1500’s, Fairbororoughs was developed as the biggest farm in the area north of the site of the monastery. It was in fact a Grange but has always been titled as a farm.

The Lowe family are the first owner occupiers since the early 1700’s.
 
The name Fairboroughs means ‘a pretty place where sheep can graze’, and everyone who visits concurs with this appropriate name.

Fairboroughs is a beautiful, peaceful place to spend some time and find out what the countryside is all about!
