Hello, We are Andy and Joanne second generation farmers. Andy and his dad, Jim have been running the 170 dairy herd now for over 50 years. Harry, our son joined the team, after completing his agriculture course in 2019 and together they strive to provide a healthy stock of milk cows. However, Harry decided to go and see how the New Zealanders farm for 6 months and came back in march 2020. He stayed for a bit and then decided to go Lincolnshire - I suppose it's all experience!? Farmer Andy will just have to wait for his helper to return. We also have two other children Lucy and George. Lucy now helps with the Glamping site and can often be seen on the Quad. Finally there's George. He started secondary school in September and you'll probably see him a lot kicking a football around or bringing you wood on the quad. During lock down he's become Farmer Andy's right hand man and has learnt how to muck out/ milk/ drive tractors and much much more! I have a background in teaching and love working outdoors and I am looking forward to sharing our beautiful site with you.
You'll often hear Andy say that his cows have the best view in Lancashire from the 'cow palace'! and now you will too. A panoramic view of the infamous Pendle Hill with the tale of the famous witches who once lived there.
Ask for a farm tour, Jim or Andy would love to have a chat- as long as you can speak farmer language!
