Upper Moreton Farm is a 100 acre beef and sheep farm in the countryside of Wolseley Bridge, Staffordshire, approximately two miles from Cannock Chase. It has been in the Carney family ownership for over fifty years.
As the name suggests the farm is on the top of a gently sloping valley, the landscape includes old and modern grasslands, small copses, several wildlife ponds, fishing pools and well established broad-leaved trees namely ash and oak.
