Farm Background: A mixed farm of approx 220ha, Stocked with 85 pedigree South Devon sucklers, all progeny finished on farm, approx 400 breeding sheep, Black Welsh Mountain and Wiltshire Horn, 4 saddleback sows producing approx 65 fat pigs a year. Approx 50-100 acres of arable grown each year - mainly to feed back to stock. A mixture of permanent pasture, including watermeadows and rotationally cropped land. We invested in a roundhouse two years ago to house some of our beef herd. This is an innovative design - high welfare and labour efficient.
