Tolly's Farm was a farmed owned by the Tolly family. In around 1980, Hannah Tolly moved in with her boyfriend after getting a trainee hairdresser job in Hotten. Hannah's father Enoch was killed in a tractor accident on the farm in February 1981. Enoch's wife and Hannah's mother Grace struggled with only her daughter Naomi to help and so she hired Daniel Hawkins, who had recently resigned from NY Estates. However, Naomi still struggled but she rejected a generous offer for NY to buy the farm in 1981. Eventually, Naomi also left for Hotten and Grace considered selling to NY Estates following Joe Sugden putting forward the same option and Grace sold and moved to Hotten too, convincing Daniel to return working for NY Estates.
