Animals at Lower Moor Farm
We have two dogs, Tilly and Bailey, a shitzu x and a cockerpoo. We also have 3 cats Pixie, Misty and Luna. They can quite often be found sleeping in a hay rack during the day.
The barns have housed a variety of animals including horses, pigs, chickens, sheep throughout the centuries.
We are often very busy in the spring with lambing and kidding. It is a joy to see the new-born lambs and kids skipping and jumping around the yard and fields. We are keen to keep rare breed animals so we currently have 5 Golden Guernsey goats - Honey, Willow, Daffodil, Bumble and Bea. We also have a small flock of Black Welsh Mountain sheep. We are keeping our fingers crossed that Honey, Willow and Bea are pregnant and we will have kids in May and that our seven ewes will start lambing in April.
The goats currently share the barn with our 5 chickens who provide us with free-range fresh eggs and we also have 2 ducks.
Sarah is out doing feeding around 8 in the morning and 5-6 in the evening. You are more than welcome to join her and help feed the animals and see how we look after them.
We have housed 3 sets of Oxford Sandy and Black pigs at the top of the garden that have provided us with delicious pork, sausages, bacon and chops. We have pork available for sale. We are hoping to have more pigs in spring 2022.
