This is our farm where we keep Red Poll, Blue Albion, Kerry & Original Population Dairy Shorthorn cattle and make cheese. Our farm is at the Eastwell, on the Belvoir Ridge overlooking the beautiful Vale of Belvoir. We’re only a few miles North of Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire.

Countryfile are visiting the East Midlands. They are showing Elderflower Cordial at Belvoir, Wissendine windmill…flour & us!! see the cows & calves coming up for milking & us in the dairy. We are really thrilled to see the cows & calves so relaxed living together & are excited to be on the way to becoming a Pasture For Life Farm. It makes so much sense in every way,caring for the soil, naturally reared stock producing ‘ good proper’ milk for us all.
Happy to be supplying Hambleton Bakery with milk enjoy their wonderful bread & confectionery in local shops.
Thank you to all our wonderful friends who have helped make all this possible for us.
