We have a farm comprising 300 acres of old pasture which was once a Royal Deer park. It is 3 miles from America Lodge. We currently have 700 sheep and 100 cattle.
We are members of the ‘red tractor scheme’ and we are committed to the highest welfare standards for our livestock. Our animals are fed naturally with grass complemented by cereal feed as the seasons demand.
The calves are bought in from dairy farms and fed on milk feeders in groups of 5. They are never caged individually as they love company. They are weaned at about 2 months old and are then fed on a cereal compound and sweet meadow hay. They love to go out to grass and are allowed outside as soon as we are confident they are eating enough cereal food. All cattle have to have numbered identification by law and this also allows us to individually monitor them.
