Improved track

One of the biggest difficulties with a rented farm is deciding which issues are the most important to do first! For many years the biggest issue in our lives has been surviving but having managed to do that it was decided that the route from the parlour to the fields had got to the point that it really needed to be solved.

Hannahs new pony


Since Hannah was able to recognise a pony which was probably eight months she has wanted to ride. At eighteen months she would sit on the arm of the settee with her riding hat on, a stick in her hand and her wellie boots on, oh I forgot a dummy in her mouth, she'll love that and watch the racing on channel four.

Life on the Farm

Quantck Vista
 Our morning starts usually about 5.30am, a nice cup of tea before getting out sets everything right. Zip the collie puppy is quite good as an alarm clock because by 6am he is waiting to fetch the cows and can be quite vocal barking and pulling at your trouser leg, not funny if you are wearing shorts!

The herd of cows at White Horse farm consists of 35 milking cows, 9 in-calf heifers and 5 baby heifer calves so far!  The cows are mainly Friesian Holstein but there are also a couple of Guernsey’s, a couple of shorthorn and two young Brown Swiss. The cows at the farm are the main income producers.
