We are a small family farm open to visits for families, mobile visits to schools, parties, fairs etc. Providing a bespoke farm animal experience for all.

We moved in to the farm in the Summer of 2015. That summer the rebuild began. We are very proud of the changes that we have made and how the business has grown and developed since then.

We started with the rebuild of the existing stables and improvements to the livery yard. The improved arena was the next transformation as well as developing the land in order to meet the needs of the livestock that were being introduced. The first animals to be introduced were a small herd of British Lop pigs. This is where our interest in the conservation of rare and native breeds began. Lincolnshire Longwool and Hebredian Sheep followed and more recently, three Dexter heifers. Alongside the Rare Breeds there the pygmy goats and a variety of ducks, hens and bantams and alpacas.

We have been visiting schools, providing real opportunities to enhance education and promote understanding of animals and farming. We aim to develop facilities on site to provide educational, therapeutic activities for young people who are not accessing the academic curriculum in mainstream schools. for what ever reason. We would like to become a care farm.
