Whether farming for pleasure or profit, starting out in farming can be an exciting yet daunting prospect. Am I buying the right land, the right stock, the right machinery ? How do I care for the animals or even source the right animals for me ? How on earth does a Livestock Market work ? Expensive mistakes are easy to make along the way.
Perhaps we can help. As working hill farmers we can offer real practical advice and an honest opinion. Roy Critchlow has farmed his whole life and experienced the pitfalls and peaks of farming. He has built up his farm from a patch of scrub to over 200 acres today. He has real practical skills in a wide range of livestock, knowledge that can’t be found in a book. His partner Karen, having entered farming after a career in telecoms can see farming through the eyes of a newcomer and after 10 years farming in the more windswept terrain of the Peak District can offer a unique perspective.
What we can offer:
One to one practical advice on your smallholding or farm. Walking the terrain, advising on stocking densities, the right animals for you etc. Advice uniquely tailored to you and your land.
Help in sourcing the right livestock for you. Perhaps this means accompanying you to the Livestock Auctions or vendor of your chosen livestock, to assess animals on your behalf and ensure the correct price.
Be a farmer for the day. A day on our farm learning hands on experience. Accompanying us lambing, worming the cows or whatever it is that you really want to get up close and dirty to.
If you are looking to purchase a smallholding or farm, we can help assess the property and land to see if it will really match your expectations.
Guidance through the myriad of regulations.
Whatever type of advice or experience you are looking for, be assured that we have a no-nonsense approach. Always honest and practical. Our aim is to get you up and running with the right stock, advising on possible pitfalls and areas for market. We can train you in all aspects of animal husbandry.
