We look forward to welcoming you to our undiscovered, unspoilt and memorable county.
We pride ourselves on extending a very warm welcome to all our guests on our 400-acre organic family working beef and sheep farm.
The farm is nestling beneath the tranquil Breidden Hills, where wildlife abounds, in the picturesque Severn valley.
Lane Farm History
Lane Farm has been here since the 1600’s but we arrived in April 1998 to farm its 209 acres and in the autumn of 2001 had the opportunity to take over Middle Farm with 184 acres, both farms form part of the Criggion Estate. All of our land is very close to the rivers Severn and Vynwy causing the majority of the land at both farms to flood at certain times. We diversified in 2000 with the extension to the farmhouse being completed enabling us to offer Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast accommodation.
As July becomes a distant memory we can only look back at the amazing differences in weather we have had, from the wetness to the hotest and a rare mixture in between.
The silage pit at Middle Farm is 3/4 full and we will hopefully be able to get another cut late August/ early September, before the oats are ready to be combined. All sheep have been weaned, a bit on the noisy side for a couple of days but they seem to have settle down now. All cows have at long last calved and are now all ladies of leisure in the grass fields, with the calves just coming to the age of happily being the other end of the field to Mum and having a great game with their friends.
We have been struggling to find some one to come and work for us a few days a week, they all seem keen on the phone, but never turn up,fingers crossed hopefully we have a couple in the pipeline which we hope will be the answer to our prayers.
As we are cutting down the sheep numbers this year we have given notice on the hill grazing, it will be good not to have to worry about the stock up there and being chased by dogs, wich has happened a couple of times.
Our thoughts at the moment are with the farmers in North Yorkshire and the terrible devistation they have after the flash floods, lets hope the weather settles down and everyone can gather the harvest safely.
