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.
With the arrival of April the weather has certainly taken a turn, what an amazing few weeks we have had of early spring weather, a little scarey, as no doubt late winter will have a good old fashioned sting in its tale.
We went clear on our 6 monthly TB test, and as we are so short of silage and feed we managed to sell 44 stores and 15 in calf heifers, which will certainly help with the feed situation. The grass has been growing a little and the sheep are happy slowly moving around the farm. Technically we do not start lambing until 6th April, but we had a set of twins 7 days ago, obviously when the ram lambs made an escape bid back in the summer they had been in with the ewes a little longer than we originally thought. There are only 3 ewes due to lamb early according to the scanning man. The scan of the ewes is looking good with not too many triplets, lots of twins all good news, so fingers crossed if the weather behaves lambing should be ok.
The sheep are finding a few holes in various parts of the hedges around the farm, so that will be a job in the next few weeks to get everything secured before the hoards of lambs find the escape routes.
Here's hoping that April will be kind to us all in weather terms and that an early spring will appear.
