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.
Having managed to sneak a few days away in the sun it was some what of a surprise to wake up on our return to see a white frost and certainly a shock to the system.
The grass is growing slowly, but nothing has been shut up for another cut of grass, so we go into the long winter with limited foreage and a big hope it will be an early spring. We have brought some of the cows in just to save some grass for the younger livestock, with a little bit of buffer feeding we will try and keep them out as long as possible. The ewes will be going back on the hill this week as there is a little grass up there for them.
The swallows have left us now and the yard is very peaceful, strange not to see them all on the roofs sunning themslves, hopefully they will be back next year.
We shall soon be lighting the wood burner, so a couple of days chopping wood is on the agenda.
Hopefully October will be a good month with classic warm days and cool nights, a little rain would help, but not inches, its going to be a worrying winter not just for us but many other livestock farmers throught the UK, fingers crossed for us all.
