LIVESTOCK

We have around 350 Suffolk cross ewes on the permanent pasture around the farm, and a small but brazen band of little Black Welsh Mountain sheep, who with their dark chocolate coloured coats, are pepper to the rest of the flock’s salt.

Our lambing season lasts approximately three weeks from around the end of March, during which time we hope to have 200 new lambs.

Besides the sheep we have a flock of very free-range hens galloping around the orchard, and the eggs are for sale in the farm shop. Also living on the farm are a selection of pigs, goats, turkeys and cows.
