We have a small flock of Shetland
sheep in our field as grass cutters with the benefit of lamb. In 2021 we have welcomed some new additions to our smallholding, 3 Pigmy Goats. We also keep some chickens for snail and slug control and to produce wonderfully tasty
free range eggs which we sometimes have available to buy (if the girls are behaving themselves and laying their eggs where we can find them).
