Our Family Farm
Enjoy looking around our Farm and meeting all our lovely animal friends.

We are so lucky in that we have so much open space to ride the horses and take the dogs out, most of the time together. We have a stream running through our farm and it's a great place to stop for a cool off during the warm summer months.
We do all our own harvest work - easy and enjoyable work, if the weather is good.
We milk about 65 friesian cows. The girls can be with us for 12 or more years, Most modern units the average is 3 to 4yrs.
The girls have a quiet and steady life with us, treated as individuals and looked after as such.
At 5:30am you will see them slowly starting to walk down from the fields in their own good time for milking. Its nice to look out of the bedroom window and see them coming over the hill on their way down to the parlour for the milking, the first job of the day .
Because the girls are quite happy to meet us in the parlour, we can have 10 minutes more in bed before we start the day!
