It's named after the farm that sits behind the northbound Little Chef (although strictly speaking services are supposed to be named after settlements, clearly an exception was made in this case).
For a couple of years after the completion of the M40, this was the last service station before Birmingham. The northbound side was deliberately built with this in mind, but the southbound side pre-dates this considerably: it was once a garage by the side of the A43 Oxford to Northampton road.
The first of the two southbound services consists of only a Shell with lots of room for expansion, and the second one houses a Starbucks, several houses and a derelict Fina petrol station which now sells motorhomes.
The petrol station closed in the 1990s and was known for being particularly cheap. The Shell garage used to be quiet and run-down, possibly due to the direct competition. The Starbucks was an Eat & Go restaurant until February 2016, and until September 2012 it was a Little Chef. In the late 1980s Little Chef moved in to the building originally occupied by the Layby Cafe from their previous position on the other side of the petrol station.The northbound services are a much later addition, built as a Happy Eater which later became the common Little Chef/Burger King combination. In 2011 this site was refurbished to Little Chef's new look, Wonderfully British. The Little Chef closed in late July 2017 and is due to reopen as a Starbucks soon.
