Animals

Rare breeds of farm animal
We aim to keep rare and traditional British farm animals, which show historical regional variation, are generally not kept commercially and are at risk of disappearing. For more information on rare breeds see the RBST website.

Bee hives and bee garden
The farm has kept honey bees for nearly 20 years. Our bees pollinate the fruits and vegetables in the garden and produce prize winning honey.

Bees are an essential part of the world ecosystem but they are struggling, partly because of habitat loss. We can all help by growing pollinator friendly flowers in our garden and containers. Our bee friendly garden contains flowers you can grow at home, look out for the RHS pollinator friendly logo on plants in the garden centre.
