Cattle

The farm runs a herd of 70 suckler cows which

rear calves that are then finished for the farm shop.We also buy 2 week old calves from local dairy  farmers which are then also reared and finished again for the shop. The ones not sold in

our shop are taken to the local auction market.

 

We have a variety of breeds which include Charolaise, Aberdeen Angus, Belgium Blue,  Simmental, Hereford and Limousine.

​​Through the summer months our cows are turned to graze on the

lush green pastures surrounding our farm.

Pigs

The pigs we rear are mainly Landrace or Large Whites; they are reared from 3 week old weaners and produced specifically for the shop.
