Experience the joys of farm life

The Farm

A day in the life at our farm

Come & Meet Our Animals

Nestled within the beautiful Devonshire countryside, our small family-run working farm has lots of friendly animals waiting to meet you and say hello – from our Dorset Horn sheep to Berkshire pigs, Orpington chickens and Campbell ducks. With lots going on all-year-round, we are happy to invite individuals and groups to book a visit and experience country life at the farm up close.

Perhaps you’d like to see the lambs and piglets feeding from their mothers, or watch fluffy chicks and ducklings hatch? Or enjoy watching the ducks swimming in their pond, or the chickens clucking around! You can also meet Dinky, our ‘ginger ninja’ miniature Shetland pony, and take a gentle stroll through our 9 acres of mature woodlands to see if you can spot any deer, pheasants or other wildlife.

Support British agriculture

From Farm-to-Table

As a working farm, animal welfare is our top priority, and we pride ourselves on our traditional farming methods and dedication to sustainability. We provide exceptional meat and eggs from British heritage pigs, sheep and poultry slow-reared with compassion on our acres of lush green pastures, for incredible natural flavour and texture.

Dedication to Animal Welfare

Committed to ethical and sustainable farming, our philosophy is to rear animals slowly and with due care through the changing seasons, upholding exceptional care standards and treating our livestock with the dignity and quality of life they deserve.

Our Conservation Efforts

Our livestock consists entirely of British Heritage breeds within the 'Priority' and 'At Risk' categories of the Rare Breeds Survival List, carefully chosen and nurtured to support their conservation. This also ensures that our produce has proven provenance and traceability, from farm-to-fork.

British Heritage breeds

Our Animals

Sheep

We currently have a variety of sheep breeds and are working towards building a new flock of heritage Dorset Horn sheep. The Dorset Horn is an endangered British breed sheep and is documented from the seventeenth century which spread over Dorset, Somerset, Devon and most of Wales. They are white-woolled and white-faced; the nostrils are a characteristic pink and both sexes are horned, with heavy spiral horns on rams. Their fleeces are thick, the mothers are amazing milk producers and both sexes have the ability of producing delicious meat. In 1750 this was the breed selected by the English with a fine palate would eat for Christmas!

Ducks

We have a couple of pet mallard ducks with us on the farm but breed Khaki Campbell Ducks for their meat and eggs. The Campbell duck is a British rare breed developed by Adele Campbell of England at the turn of the 20th century, bred for their tasty eggs and superb flavour and tenderness of their meat. Campbells are lively and are good foragers. The Khaki is, as its name suggests, an even shade of warm khaki with pencilling on the breast. The drake should have a green-bronze head and the duck a slightly darker shade of khaki to the body.

Chickens

The Orpington is a heritage breed developed in Kent, England in the nineteenth century by William Cook of Orpington and is a dual-purpose chicken breed. Bred specifically to produce superior eggs and a reputation for good quality, tender and flavourful meat. Orpington Chickens original colours are black, white, buff, blue and splash although many other variations are available now. With their fluffed out feathers they look larger than they actually are.

Pigs

The Berkshire pig os classed is a Heritage Rare Breed originating from the English county of Berkshire. The meat is succulent and more flavourful than standard pork and known for its superior quality. Prized for juiciness, flavour and tenderness, pink-hued and heavily marbled, a choice for many leading chefs. Berkshire pigs have pricked ears and are black in colour, with four white socks and white markings on the face.

Goats

We currently have two English Goats on site, Celeste and baby Ceecee. The English Goat is a beautifully marked, deer-like goat with a very friendly temperament, currently within the Priority category of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust's Watchlist. They are usually brown or grey, with occasional patches of white, and have a dark line down their back with similar markings on their legs, necks and flanks. Thriving in the British climate, their history dates back to Georgian times, with the first known picture of the breed taken in 1872. The naturally high levels of solids in English Goat milk means it makes lovely cheese - and even soap!
