Faces around the Farm
THE COWS – HIGHLAND CATTLE
On the farm we have 4 young highland heifers (girls). These are one of Britain’s oldest most distinctive and best-known breeds with their shaggy hair and wide horns.
We don’t advise people go in the field with them as they think everyone has food for them, and can be a bit pushy/playful but are still very friendly. They will be fenced off so you can still access the entire farm.
We have a mix of chicken breeds all laying different coloured eggs (Brown, White and Blue). We have Burford Browns (large dark brown eggs), White Leghorns (large paper white eggs), Legbarrs (small pail blue eggs) and Copper Morans (large light brown eggs).
Tilly was our black and white springer spaniel and sadly passed away at the beginning of 2021. Tilly was the official yurt dog – she was besotted with children and tried to spend every waking hour down the yurt site, helping guests to build dams in the stream. We know many of you will miss seeing her. See our tribute to Tilly and share your memories of her here.
