As a mixed arable farm, our organic livestock play an essential part in helping us grow our grains.
We rear 350 breeding mule ewes on the farm which form part of our crop rotation. Their manure replenishes the soil with vital nutrients and help its fertility, and as a result, we are able to build healthy soil without the use of fertilisers. The ewes are also fed organic grass and receive no routine vaccinations or feed additives so that we have one very happy and healthy flock.
Our founders Clare and Michael also enthusiastically keep rare Mangalitsa pigs, a breed that originates from Hungary. We love them for their thick, woolly coats – not too dissimilar from the ewes!Back to On The Farm
