We had a sad day at the weekend. Our oldest cow (Hope) died – we knew something was wrong as, although she was pregnant, she had lost a lot of weight quite suddenly. The vet had examined her and couldn’t find any obvious cause. The blood tests he did showed that there was some liver damage (although not fluke) so it’s possible she had eaten something poisonous but we won’t ever know what the real problem was. The only consolation was that she died peacefully, in her field with all her family (daughters, son & grandsons) around her. See MoreSee Less

Good news! No TB in the herd & 3 pregnant cows!
We’ve had to have an additional TB test as there’s been a cow diagnosed with it in the area. We are all clear, thank goodness. There will be another test in 6 months & if that’s OK then hopefully we will be back to the normal 4 year testing regime.

Are you thinking of Christmas yet? If so & you need a present idea, here are the sheepskins we have available.
They are tanned in the UK and every one is unique.
Perfect draped on a sofa or chair for a lovely cosy look in your home or a superb gift!
Available for Β£75 each & can be posted if required – see photos for sizes (measurements are of the leather – the actual rug will appear about 10cm bigger!)

And here is a photo!We have one box of mutton left to order for collection this weekend! Just £40 for a quarter box (which weighs nearly 7kg) – this pack has a half leg joint , half a shoulder joint, some loin chops and cutlets, boneless leg steak & breast. Mutton is a terrific meat – darker & more fuller flavoured than lamb, it's super for slow cooking, stews, curries & tagines – perfect for winter! See MoreSee Less

We said goodbye to most of this years ewe lambs yesterday. All but the 2 we are keeping as flock replacements went off as breeding stock to a commercial farm in Leicestershire. It’s nice that they will all stay together, they may even meet their sisters who went there last year!
(apologies for the poor photo – it was very, very wet!!!)

This is the last call for our final batch of local, home reared, grass fed JACOB LAMB (only one half lamb left!). We also have some MUTTON available!

The lamb available is a half lamb priced at Β£7.50 a kilo based on the dead weight. This lamb is about 20kg so will cost Β£75.00. We will give you a choice of cuts & these will all be vacuum packed & labelled ready for you to freeze.

Mutton will be just Β£40 for a quarter box of approximately 8kg weight – each pack has a half leg joint (knuckle or fillet), half a shoulder joint (knuckle or blade), some loin chops and cutlets, and either boneless leg steaks or boned and roiled breast (this could be minced or cubed if required). Mutton is a terrific meat – darker & more fuller flavoured than lamb, it’s super for slow cooking, stews & tagines – perfect for winter!

The lamb will be available to collect on the weekend of 28th/29th September and the mutton (which is hung a little longer) 5th October.

The cattle, on the other side of the loch to us, stampede towards the water’s edge for a drink some days...and that’s sea water...they love it!

That is such a great pic Les. :)
