We keep pure and cross-bred Shetland sheep, and pedigree Devon Ruby Red cattle.

Our animals are reared in a non-intensive way and we have an in-depth knowledge of all our stock. Strict organic principals apply and this ensures the best possible, and least stressful, environment for the animals.

We aim to manage the farm in a way that not only benefits our sheep and cattle but also supports and encourages the rich variety of flora and fauna that share the land.

All of our animals are free to roam and can express their natural behaviour. They graze on our own organic pasture as well as hay during the winter months.

Both lambs and calves are reared slowly, weaned later than in conventional agriculture and stay on grass until they reach their full weight. Research shows that meat from animals raised on pastures is richer in antioxidants and offers more 'good' fats and fewer 'bad' fats.

Meat from grass-fed animals has been shown to have two to four times more Omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain fed animals. Omega-3s are also believed to lower the risk of high blood pressure and heart attack and are thought to lower the risk of cancer.
