Pinstripes get a taste of the country

CITY executives can try their hand at milking cows, tending sheep and driving carriages in a new corporate hospitality venture, reports the Financial Times.

The Stephenson family, who run a 260-acre farm at Upper Aynho, Banbury, Oxfordshire, hope to attract bankers and their clients to spend a day in the country.

This is the latest in a long line of diversification projects undertaken by the family.

For 13 years they have rented out converted barns for conferences and offered guests clay pigeon shooting and fly fishing.
