We make all our own hay on small grass fields near the farm. 1500-2000 bales are stored in the barn and used throughout the winter and the rest of the year.

some vintage ones. Peter also has a collection of Grey Fergies and
The farm comprises of 140acres of land, but another 70 acres of arable land is rented and a similar amount is contract farmed for Nicola's parents, so in all over 300acres of arable is farmed each year with crops of Wheat, Barley and Oilseed Rape. Pigs used to be reared on contract but now goats fill the old pig sheds! As Nicola's goat enterprise has expanded.
