Jeffrey’s farmland makes up General Camping, Boutique Camping, Wild Wellbeing and half of Lavish Lands. Without Jeffrey and other local farmer Philip Smith, the festival would quite simply never have got going in the early years. When they are not in The Star, Jeffrey and Philip are always available and willing to lend a hand (or JCB!).
If you see either of them at Standon Calling 2021 buy them a drink!
My name is Jeffrey Pearman and I am a neighbouring farmer to Standon Lordship. Some of my land is used for the for the festival site.
I enjoy seeing the site developing in only a few short weeks from green pasture to a vibrant colourful festival and then just as quickly returning to pasture again.
Having some of the best artists in the country performing on our doorstep. Plus the amazing food tents and bars of course!
It has grown from a small barbecue birthday celebration and hasn’t lost any of its charm and family feel – I enjoy reconnecting with friends who were involved in the setting up of the very first festivals who still return every year.
