Sitting in the lowlands of East Devon, Westcott is situated in a beautiful part of Devon, and has a mild climate. Our goats have the run of fenced fields during the summer months with fallen trees to play on, and they are housed in large airy and light open barns during the winter months. Kids are left with their mothers for up to 5 months and browse when outdoors and supplemented with high protein food ad lib. When indoors the goats are fed on haylage, hay and concentrates. They also receive regular green food in the form of branches, leaves and farm grown fodder. The farm supports and works with the Red Tractor Scheme ensuring good practice throughout all aspects of our farm. Our cattle are largely of the Limousin breed, but we run a British Blue bull with them. Calves are sent to market when approx. 9 months old for finishing or breeding. The sheep are Zwartbles, a dual purpose breed giving plenty of milk for their lambs. They are crossed with a meat type ram for commercial purposes, generally a Charollais.
