About Us

Ian and Sarah both grew up on farms and are delighted to now be running their own dairy goat farm. Ian grew up, worked and was a partner on his family’s dairy farm in Wales. During those years he became interested in dairy goat farming and arranged to do some work experience with the goat milking herd at the National Institute  for Research in Dairying, Shinfield, Reading. The seed was sown but it wasn’t until he met his lovely, like-minded wife that the dream became a reality! Ian is interested in design, as seen in our farm shop, compost toilets or passive house. He is also interested in using renewable technology to reduce our energy usage.

Sarah grew up on her small family-run farm in the Brendon Hills in Somerset. The family farmed a beef suckler herd, grew crops and let grass and stables to local farmers. Her mother always kept one or two goats and so Sarah needed no convincing as to the merits of keeping them. What more could a wife ask for than scores of kids born every year! Sarah worked as a music teacher for 10 years and is passionate about teaching children where healthy, nutrient dense food comes from. She is also striving to farm in a nature-friendly way.

Although we both like to muck in with most jobs, in general Ian and Sarah run the farm together, Ian runs the camp site and Sarah makes the cheese and other products.

And of course we have 2 cheese maker/goat herder apprentices in the making: Our lively boys – Ali and Ed. You can find out more from our episode of TV fame – City life to Country Life
