Farm

Cattle

The Plum Park Farm, Longhorn Herd have been here since 1994. The cows are bred for Beef.  The meat is a very slow maturing meat which does mean it takes longer to produce but gives the meat a much richer flavour and a greater marbling in the meat.  Celebrity Chef Heston Blumenthal has claimed it is the best beef he has ever tasted.


Lamb

There are two flocks of sheep on the farm. We have a commercial flock of mule ewes which we cross with a Charolaise Ram to produce good quality lambs for meat.

The other flock are Pedigree Jacobs. They are naturally a very friendly and tame breed which makes them nice to have around. In a similar way to the longhorn cattle they are a slower maturing meat but again it is worth the wait.


Horses  

We have just retired The Crofter at the grand age of 25 years old. He is still with us and can still be seen living out his golden years with one or two of wives still in tow.  He has finished his breeding career with a great reputation having had his offspring compete successfully in many different disciplines and indeed four of his offspring are still in our ranks hunting with The Farmers Bloodhounds.

We offer a facility for foaling down mares and are experienced in rearing orphan foals should you be unfortunate enough to lose a mare or have a problem! Advice and encouragement are always available - don't hesitate to call.

We have the Towcester Vets Equine unit here on site, with specialist help if required.
