  • Beef Shorthorns:

    We started in the Pedigree world of Beef Shorthorn's in September 2002 after looking for a native breed...
    ...with excellent mothering abilities and great temperament whilst still retaining commercial attributes, which would work in our situation having a young family and thousands of tourists through the farm each year, whilst still doing well in the harsh climate of a Lake District farm.
    We are trying to produce good quality breeding stock which we sell privately and at Society sales.
    Over the last 8 years we have had success in the sales ring with leading prices at Thirsk/Skipton and Carlisle Society sales for both Yearling and 2 year old females.
  • Swaledale Sheep:

    We have 300 ewes some are bred pure to produce flock replacements and the rest are crossed with the bluefaced Leicester to produce the North of England Mule.
    These are sold at the annual Lazonby sheep sales in September / October each year.
