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.
With the end of October and now into Novemeber we still have the heifers out at grass, the days have been so warm and the grass was still growing slowly it seemed a shame to bring them all in, the longer they can stay out the shorter the winter will be in the way of forage. The cows and calves have been housed and they have settled into the winter feeding ration well.
The ewes are back up on the hill, we did not manage to get them sheared this year for the second time, we had a provisional day booked, but the forecast was wet and cold following the proposed shearing day, so we cancelled it. We will belly shear them nearer lambing, which is going to go back a week or so this year, in the hope that the weather will be a bit better than this year, with all the snow and rain.
The wood shed is filled nearly to the roof and so we shall be warm and cosy what ever the weather throws at us this winter, in fact we have had to let the fire out this weekend as it was just too warm!.
Lets hope the settled conditions continue for a while and help us all to a shorter winter, roll on spring.
