Description
We are an eco conscious diversified farm that believes in slow food, slow money and sustainability. While not a certified organic farm, we choose to minimise spraying, minimise artificial fertiliser and allow our cattle to express their "cowiness".

Our farming enterprise consists of:
- a small herd of Pedigree South Devon cattle which are grass fed and grass finished,
- a heritage apple orchard with 2000 trees consisting of 40 varieties from which we make single variety apple juice.

We have diversified into hospitality and operate a 5 star award winning B&B which is accredited by Green Tourism at their Gold Standard and a busy wedding and events venue.

Our green credentials extend to a solar array on one of our barn roofs and a biomass district heating system, currently fuelled by purchased woodchip. However, we expect to be self sufficient by harvesting our own woodland.
