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 sun shining and the sheep having been sheared, grass cut and safely in the pit we can now concentrate on the other jobs which we need to catch up on. The lambs have been sprayed to keep the flies off them and the ewes are coming in this week to have the same treatment. The cattle have to be fluked as the wet summer last year has caught up and they need treating. Some of the lambs are ready to go and weaning will take place in a couple of weeks, the ewes will then go up on the hill, where there is some grass for them. We will probably have to start feeding some hay to the cattle in the next few days as grass growth has all but stopped. This weather is glorious, but never in moderation in this country!.
The cows are now being AI which hopefully will result in calves next spring, we are still waiting for the bulls to have various tests before they can be brought onto the farm, hopefully within the next 10 days both boys will have arrived.
The swallows and house martins are very busy feeding their young, some of which are very nearly falling out of their nests as the sun has dried them out so much they are cracking, late evening and its like the M25 for birds in the yard.
With the weather set fair for a while we will try and sneak off for a day at the sea side for a paddle and a cool off, with fingers crossed for s good shower or two as well!.
