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.
What an amazing dry Autumn we have had, into Novemebr and we still have cows out in the fields, something which has never happened before. The grass has kept growing and it is so dry. We will start brining them in this week, as we need to save the grass for the sheep for their winter feed. Straw prices have been very high this year, so the more we can save with the cattle being out the better and we have plenty of silage for feeding this winter.
The tups have gone in with the ewes and hopefully we should start lambing around the end of March, a little earlier than usual, but hopefully the weather will be good then for out door lambing. We had a little excitement last week when a chinook helicoper had to make an emergency landing in one of our fields due to having hit a bird, the other helicopter flying alongside landed as well.
Here hoping that the remainder of the Autumn stays dry and reasonably warm.
