We focus on the best that British farms and the countryside can offer as shoot locations in the UK, hand-picking a varied and extensive library of rural locations, from huge farm estates to a small cottage plot.
Landowners and clients alike, take confidence in working with a location agency that has the know-how and the ability to match-make well and stay hands-on when facilitating the production.
We know every one of our locations inside out and are proud of the challenging projects that we undertake.
It’s our deep understanding of farming and of media production, that makes us truly one-of-a-kind.
An outdoor location is more challenging to organise versus the hire of a studio or a location house. We take it in our stride.
Many locations are EXCLUSIVE to us
Clients range from the BBC, Netflix and Amazon Prime to start-up retailers or emerging music artists, taking their early steps. We want to help everyone and do our bit to support the film industry, British farming and the preservation of our landscape.
We are a friendly, passionate, tiny team, with sleeves rolled up, ready to make things happen. Our locations agency is light on its feet and very hands-on, making the hire of a farm location much easier than ever before.

Thank you again Farm Locations, you always come through!Adam, Location Manager
The industry might call us a locations library or a locations agency. That suggests a passive listings service, and one at arms-length. That often means locations are not personally visited by the agency, and relationships with owners are not built. At Farm Locations, we work differently. We offer an open, honest, attentive service. We do a whole lot more throughout the shoot production process too: that’s if you’d like us to. Hence we feel we are far from a typical UK locations library or locations agency.
Every brief is considered here and we do our best to make it happen. Even when the perfect farm may not be in the current film location library, we will use our network of farming connections to find an option for you.
Hands-on and in-the-know, we are here to make it happen. What might seem an impossible, painful brief to other UK film location companies, it’s a welcome challenge for us. Nothing is too much trouble and we work with like-minded clients and landowners, all keen to make for a smooth and enjoyable ride when shooting on location in the Great British outdoors.
The locations agency was founded by Jo Thompson in 2015, seeking to help farmers find other ways to diversify whilst preserving their beautiful slice of rural Britain. Other UK film locations companies didn’t deliver when she put her own family farm on their books. This sparked an idea that has proved a valuable helping hand to landowners and clients alike.
Farms and farming has been with Jo since childhood, and what launched her own farm down this path of diversification, remains an important factor within the business. The locations agency is here to help farmers diversify without spoiling their landscape, it’s here to put British farms on the filming map, and we are here to help producers make it easier to arrange shoots in the unknown. And what’s more, helping reduce carbon footprint is part of the grand plan: why travel abroad for shoots when so many backdrops are on your doorstep right here on home soil?
