At Cottage Farm we have established a herd of native rare breed  Red Ruby cattle, a flock of native rare breed Wiltshire Horn sheep, and we also keep chickens, geese, ducks, the occasional piglet and our best friend, Mambo, the sheep dog. Click on each image to enlarge:

Renewables

At Cottage Farm we have demonstrated that it is possible to farm sustainable and in a resilient manner, that is organically, without using fossil fuels but still utilising machinery and energy. I’ve also given presentations about sustainable farming at The Royal Agriculture College, The Transition Network conference, the Eco-Innovations conference at Westminster Hall and in Parliament addressing MPs from an All Party Parliamentary Group. We are a very energy efficient farm – below are some photos.
