We look forward to welcoming you to our undiscovered, unspoilt and memorable county.
We pride ourselves on extending a very warm welcome to all our guests on our 400-acre organic family working beef and sheep farm.
The farm is nestling beneath the tranquil Breidden Hills, where wildlife abounds, in the picturesque Severn valley.
Lane Farm History
Lane Farm has been here since the 1600’s but we arrived in April 1998 to farm its 209 acres and in the autumn of 2001 had the opportunity to take over Middle Farm with 184 acres, both farms form part of the Criggion Estate. All of our land is very close to the rivers Severn and Vynwy causing the majority of the land at both farms to flood at certain times. We diversified in 2000 with the extension to the farmhouse being completed enabling us to offer Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast accommodation.
January disappeared the same way as the Autumn and early winter in a showery mixture of wet and windy days, with the odd dry one thrown in for good measure. Everything is so wet that as soon as it rains we have flood warning and the ditches fill and the back water pours in. No one can remember ever seeing it so wet for so long here.
We were lucky that we have been able to put the majority of the ewes back up on the hill, at least they are safe from any floods and there is plenty of grass for them, and it gives the ground in the valley a chance to recover. All the lambs have been sold, the last 150 went as stores as the ground was just too wet to keep them.
The TB test was a clear result, so we are now hoping to sell some store cattle so that come turn out time, we have less feet on the floor, as the fields are going to take a very long time to dry out and recover. It will also mean we can have a better cut of silage for next winter. Its a bit nosiy as we are weaning this week, ear plugs are a necessity.
We keep hoping the weather will change, but they are now saying gale force winds and large amount of the wet stuff for the first weekend of February, so its a case of batton down the hatches and keep everything crossed.
