Troytown, St Agnes
Isles of Scilly
The most important of all the animals on the farm are Shamrock, Sundance, Rose, Honey, Westie, Sunset, Cilla, Humbug & Humble - our milking herd whose milk and cream goes into all of our lovely dairy produce. You will often see them around the island, either grazing or coming home at milking time.
Our hereford bull Ding Dong is rather distinctive due to his size. A very happy, laid back character, he sires all of our calves. The younger calves are usually kept near the campsite to let them get used to people, and - well - they are pretty cute so our visitors like to get a chance to give them a stroke.
We usually rear one or two sets of piglets every year for meat. They are fed on produce grown on the farm and sleep in an old converted water tank. We usually have chops, pork sausages and various other cuts but this year we are getting some Troytown bacon produced for the first time.
A couple of farm cats and sometimes the odd chicken can also usually be found around the farm.
