“We are currently milking around 180 British Friesian cows at the farm.”
Our ‘Cues herd’ is based on the lower land just below the village. The milking parlour is next to the farm offices and very close to the pub, so it’s easy to pop down to see them.
The herd calves in the spring and autumn and the cows are milked twice a day, starting at just after 4am, and then again at around 3pm. Between them they produce around 1 million litres of milk a year.
Teo is the herd manager, ably assisted by Andy, and they take great pride in the high health status, and very low antibiotic use.
Organic Farm & Food
We’re now combining everything—the pigs, the cows and calves, the landscapes, the wildlife—deer, owls, badgers, flora and fauna generally, although not all of it appears on cue. Our colleague James Andrews, expert at wildlife photography among other skills, will lead the ‘Safari’ tours, in the red land rover
Tackling the virus crisis ...
We have set up a farm shop at the Royal Oak in Bishopstone for groceries, organic meat and freshly prepared meals to take-away during the current restrictions on in-house dining. Please see our social media for updates and a full list of available produce.
