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.
Well into 2018 with a bang, water, water everywhere, yep, snow gone , floods arrived, hopefully the rain won't be as bad as the weather men say, but just in case, the ewe lambs are being put up on the hill today , out of harms away and a few less to worry about in the water. The ewes look well and at the moment we have plenty of grass, weather permitting.
The cattle are all fine, some of the finished steers are off next week, and some stores are being sold within the next few weeks, which will make a great difference to space in the sheds and the straw useage. The cost of straw this year is amazingly high, so the less we use the better, but the cattle have to be kept clean.
The wood pile is slowly going down, so a day of splitting logs will soon be upon us. The winter feeding and checking routine takes most of the day light hours at this time of year, so all other non urgent jobs are on the to do list.
With the scanning now done it looks as if we will be having a busy lambing season, with plenty of twins and about 50 sets of triplets.
Wishing you all a very happy 2018, we look forward to meeting new and returning visitors thorughout the coming year.
