About us

Rectory Farm PYO and Farm Shop is a family run seasonal business on the outskirts of Oxford, in the village of Stanton St John, renowned for its field fresh produce and welcome to families.

Richard and Carla Stanley have been here since 1980 when they took on the second generation tenancy from New College, and started their Pick Your Own with just a few acres of Strawberries and Raspberries and local van deliveries of new potatoes.

Since then the PYO has expanded and now covers some 45 acres at our main PYO and Shop site and a further 30 acres of PYO Asparagus. They still grow 120 acres of potatoes along with bread making wheat and oil seed rape on a 1000 acre farm.

The Business aim is to work together with our hardworking staff, suppliers and advisors to produce consistently high quality of crops for all of our customers.
