About Property Manager
We are Mike and Rita Corrigan. We bought Eastfields Farm, situated between Middlesbrough and Stokesley in North Yorkshire, in 2001. A new century and new challenge for us! We have renovated the farmhouse and converted the Granary into a home for Andrew and Ruth and reroofed all of the old stone built fold yard. We have planted and restored over 5 kilometres of hedgerow, dug 7 wildlife ponds and 3 fishing ponds and planted over 40,000 trees and erected a n 80kw wind turbine. Whilst all this was going on we also bought a Hardware shop in Stokesley which is now run by our middle son Owen. All the building are heated by various forms of heat pump, ground source, air source and exhaust air systems are in use We now live here with our eldest son Andrew his wife Ruth and their three children. Whilst not farmers previously, we have always had a keen interest in nature and wildlife,. Our aim was to enjoy a quiet life and create a haven of tranquillity! Well, it hasn’t quite worked out that way, with lots of projects to tackle and a never ending list of jobs to do. Still, we love it all and we look forward now to sharing it with you.
