Here at Surrey Docks Farm we’ve been proud to breed from our own small herd of Red Poll cows; producing high quality beef for the local community over the past 10 years.
This year we have made the decision to stop breeding and instead will buy in young calves to rear here. We made this decision so that we can showcase different breeds of cattle to our visitors all year round, as with a very small site we were having to send our adult cows away for 4 months of the year to rest our fields.
Before we purchase our next young calves, we’ve taken the opportunity to update our cow pen. With financial support from the Worshipful Company of Farmers we’ll be installing a new hard-standing area and a brand-new cow shed to ensure quality accommodation for future residents.
