The History of South Farm

South Farm, located in the picturesque countryside of Royston, Hertfordshire, has a rich and colourful history that encompasses more than a century. The ancient farmstead, which was officially established in the late 19th century, has seen several transformations, starting its journey as a humble local farm, and gradually evolving into a prestigious wedding venue it is today. During the late 1800s, South Farm was renowned for its agricultural prowess, bustling with life on its generous farmlands. In the early 20th century, the farm underwent a significant redesign that saw the establishment of new farmhouses and outbuildings. These were designed in a distinctive Shaker style, most of which is still well conserved today. Over the years, the farm has passed through several proprietors but remained an agricultural estate until its transition into a wedding venue in the early 21st century. Owing to its unique blend of historic charm and modern comfort, South Farm quickly established itself as a popular choice among couples looking for a countryside wedding destination. Today, the venue is best known for its enchanting gardens, an extensive collection of rare-breed animals, and a fleet of Romany Gypsy caravans, contributing to its distinct aesthetic. Despite the changes, South Farm continues to honour its agricultural past by maintaining its organic farming and producing home-grown produce used in its wedding cuisine – tastefully combining heritage and sophistication.
