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.
With the sun shining and the sheep having been sheared, grass cut and ready to be picked up, at long last we are begining to catch up a little. The grass was slow for us to get going this spring and for a week or so we were desperately short, but the rain arrived and the grass has grown well. We missed the majority of the storms, but had a couple of spectacular cloud bursts,one of which flooded the entrance hall into the house, but apart from that we got away lightly. The house martins and swallows are back in more numbers than ever this year, the front yard is a little bit like dodge city at times, but its a fantastic sight when they are all flying around.
The lambs are growing well and it hardly seems possible they will be weaned in about a months time, and the ewes put up on the hill for the remainder of the summer. Our first TB re-test was a good result as we went clear, we just have to wait to do it all again on 6th August and fingers crossed we will go clear again, we can then sell some of last years heifers. We have to buy a new bull this year, and have had a couple of trips out to look at some contenders, such a difficult thing to make a decision on, as so much depends on it.
With the weather set fair for a while, at long last we can relax a little and enjoy the wonderful sounds and smells this time of year brings.
