About Us

My photo
Cousins working together on our family owned farm with the aim of running a commercial modern farm producing high yielding, high standard crops while maximising wildlife diversity. Brian is said to be the farmer and conservationist, whereas Patrick is a conservationist and farmer. This mix has given a new direction for the farm, building upon the work that our fathers and grandfather has done to improve the overall success of the farm business. The farm has gone from strength to strength with the farm being recognised at a national level winning the coveted National FWAG’s Silver Lapwing Award for farming and conservation in 2009 and then Patrick and Brian were named Countryside Farmer of the Year by the Farmers Weekly in 2010.

Reduce our Carbon foot print!

One thing we have to consider with all operations on the farm is our Carbon footprint. Farmers have got to use to driving their tractors so found this bit of equipment that will cut out the engine, improve the stamina and allow us to cut all our 180acres of hay by hand!

Just don't think everyone will be volunteering to head out with the mower so readily, maybe with this one they might! Farm machinery just keeps getting bigger and bigger!
