Livestock

Fernhill is a working family farm rearing top quality breeding stock, terminal sires, meat, wool & eggs alongside our fresh green garden producehen & chicks

Home to a multitude of micro-organisms, many rare species are found here & our land is blossoming as we holistically manage our orchard, woodlands, hedgerows, natural ponds & gardens to create beautiful & useful habitats for our animals & the local wildlife

Following the conservation aims of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme & the Higher Level Entry Scheme we continue our mission to preserve, protect & share our productive farmland

 

We use natures natural responses first to treat weeds, diseases & ailments

The Livestock

The beef cows & calves are over-wintered here at the farm after spending the long summer days conservation grazing the Somerset Wildlife Trust old Roman Hill Fort Dolebury Warren

Shetland ewes also spend the Autumn months on top of these hills feasting on flavoursome herbs ready for the tupping season in November. April lambing & Calving in mid-Summer ensures our fields come alive with the sounds of motherhood

Incorporating Fernhill as the maternal safe base, all our sheep & cows becoming efficient land management tools when travelling around the Mendip hills at various times of the year seeking fresh clean pastures – we believe soil activity is an essential element for the health of our struggling planet & thus, large mobs graze intensively for short periods to time to create a natural grazing system
