Berkshire pigs

The farm has a herd of pedigree, designated rare-breed, Berkshire pigs which have occasionally been used for breeding although they are kept primarily to support the breed. Like the Wiltshire Horn sheep, Berkshire pigs are historically associated with the local area. Pork from the Berkshire pigs is much sought after by quality butchers for its superb flavour.

Wiltshire Horn Sheep

There is a small flock of these pedigree, designated rare-breed, sheep which in times gone by were a familiar sight on the Wiltshire Downs. Wiltshire Horns are unusual in that they are ‘meat’ sheep bred for the food chain and not ‘wool’ sheep – they shed their fleece naturally throughout the year and never require shearing.

Geese

There is a small flock of assorted geese that add plenty of noise and colour to the farm.

Ivy

This is Ivy, the Bernese Mountain dog, who is everyone’s friend.
