More about Barcloy Farm (the location)Our 840 acre (340 hectare) Southern upland farm belonged to the Cally Estate until 1914 and ever since has been family owned and run, first as a dairy and sheep farm and latterly beef and sheep.
Now much of the land is let out in grass parks and we have our own flock of Scottish blackface and texel cross sheep.
Barcloy is also home to a small but steadily growing flock of Soay, the oldest existing sheep breed in Britain dating back 4000 years. We are looking forward to all their lambs in the spring.
Large parts of the farm are semi - natural heath and wetlands with extensive wildlife.
Deer and birdllfe such as barn owls and falcons are to be seen and we've even had several sightings of Red Kites.
We produce honey from our own small apiary, and fresh eggs from our brood of hens. Eggs and honey are for sale along with home grown vegetables according to availability.
Walking can be enjoyed on the farm and a climb up Barcloy Hill (268m) affords stunning 360 degree views of the area and coastline.
