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 with summer drawing to a close, we can only reflect on what a year weather wise so far it has been. We have still not had enough rain to make the grass grow, no idea how we are going to survive the winter feed wise, still everything crossed that the grass will grow enough to make some silage in the next couple of months.
Good news is that we went clear of TB, so 34 store cattle have gone to Scotland to be finished, and 20 in calf heifers (hopefully if the boys have been busy) are up for sale. A few less mouths to feed, 80 fat lambs went to the market a week ago, so again a few less to feed.
Lots of little jobs have been finished in the past few weeks, all the light bulbs replaced in the cattle sheds, fencing mended around the buildings, more wood stacked up, but unfortunately some person stole a whole pile we had stacked to bring home!.
The swallows and house martins are really busy with their second broods, and at times the yard is like the M25 , but they are keeping the flies out of the house. Like a lot of people we have had a lot of wasp nests this year, but ours have been in the ground, which is ko, until you forget whilst tidying up the lawn!
So with September here we are still looking towards the sky for rain, no doubt when it starts it will probably forget how to stop.
