About Brewery Farm

Our family run working farm gets its name from the time when Ansty was the home of the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery.

Charles Hall, born in 1751, was a farmer's son and in common with tradition was taught both brewing and farming. Ale was provided by farmers for their workers as a wholesome refreshment. Charles decided that his future lay in brewing and founded the Ansty Brewery in 1777.

Production was quickly expanded when the young brewer secured a contract to supply ale to the Army encamped on the coast near Weymouth at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. Longer term business was built up distributing ales to inns and taverns in the towns and villages around the Ansty Brewery. In 1847 Robert Hall, the founder's son, took George Woodhouse into partnership and George astutely married one of Charles' granddaughters. The name Hall & Woodhouse had begun.

The Hall and Woodhouse Brewery is now situated in the Georgian town of Blandford Forum, just 20 minutes from Ansty.

The most gorgeous view to wake up to even though it was raining. Facilities are really clean, lovely farm shop on site with everything you need and the pub over the road (The Fox Inn) was very warm and friendly, will definitely be going back here!
