We farm approx 700 acres at Allington Bar and in the local area, growing cereal crops, potatoes & grass and rearing Cattle, Pigs & Sheep.
We rear mainly traditional British breeds, some of which have now become rare breeds. We rear these old breeds on our farm because we prefer the less intensive farming methods and believe that because these breeds are slower maturing the meat has more flavour.
We have Gloucester Old Spot, British Saddleback and Tamworth rare breed pigs which we cross with Large White pigs. Our Pork pigs are bred and reared on our farm, they are loose housed on straw bedding and are fed on cereals grown on the farm without the use of high protein compounds or growth promoters.
Our beef animals are mainly our native Hereford and Aberdeen Angus breeds, they are raised and matured at a natural pace on grass and our home grown cereals without hurrying the process or feeding unnecessarily high protein compounds and growth promoters.
Similarly our lambs are bred on the farm and are reared entirely naturally on grass, we have mainly Suffolk and some of the continental Texel breeds of sheep
We grow crops such as wheat, rape and oats, and turnips which are good winter feed for the sheep when the grass is short. We also grow, potatoes courgettes, marrow, pumpkins & Squash.
