Fowlescombe is a 191 hectares (approx 472 acres) mixed organic farm in the South Hams, Devon, England a couple of miles south of Dartmoor. It is the central part of what was once an important mediaeval estate in the catchment area of the Erme. The manor house was abandoned over a century ago. The ancient field pattern and network of hedges is still substantially present, but is now farmed in an environmentally sensitive way - wildlife habitat being the priority. Our organic farm has arable land, and extensive old and modern grassland on which we keep pedigree Aberdeen Angus and Devon Ruby Red cattle and also several types of rare breed sheep, goats and chickens. The land is under a higher level and organic entry level stewardship agreement

Champion sheep at Devon County Show 2014 We won Champion and reserve rare primitive sheep at the dDevon County show in 2014. We have had champion 10 years out of the last eleven - so are very pleased. This was only 6 months after my bone marrow transplant - so Oli kindly gave me a lot of help
Jan 2013, we acquired for lovely Portland ewes, all in lamb, to start up a new flock of rare breeds. We intend to breed more for this endangered breed, and use the wool for felting and knitting with our Man and Heb wool

We specialise in starter flocks, flocks for conservation grazing, for small holders, paddock grazing, and of course for breeding flocks
