Farm Description

We breed Murray Grey and British White cattle . Murray Greys are well known . British White cattle are still a rare old English breed . Most stock are sold off farm . Sheep are primarily for home consumption as with the pigs . Excess sold privately and if numbers too great sold through agent sales . Sheep are primarily black suffolk and crosses but using an East Friesian ram at the moment . Pigs have been Large Black ( rare breed) and Hampshire . Using chemicals is avoided but do use necessary animal medications if desperately needed. Lot- fed animals definitely not a choice .
