At Lashbrook Fields we choose to farm heritage breeds that are native to Devon. These breeds are less commercially attractive because they mature at a much slower, natural pace. However, this produces a much higher quality of meat and allows us to employ farming practices that are sympathetic to the animals and to the environment.
Our main herd consists of Devon ‘Ruby Reds’, or ‘Devon Red’ cattle, including ‘Bully’ (he’s actually a big softy) the inventively named bull. However, we also farm a mix of other animals to ensure land is not overworked by a single use. This includes ducks, chickens, sheep and our resident pig ‘Doris’.
