The Taylor family have farmed Broughton Grounds since 1914.
We remain a traditional livestock and arable farm of now 350 acres.
Our main product is lamb and beef and we grow wheat, barley and oats.
We belong to the Farm Assurance Scheme which guarantee our crops and
animals are produced to the highest standard. We also have a flock of 200
free range hens and 20 beehives, so it’s eggs and honey for breakfast!
We lamb 400 ewes, some in February and some in April.
Calves are born between September and March. We shear the sheep
in June, cut the hay in July and harvest the cereals in August so
there is something to see all year round, depending on the weather.
With the mix of arable, grassland, woodland, ponds and hedges the
farm provides the perfect habitat for birds, animals and wild flowers.
In 2006 we were awarded Higher Level Stewardship status under the governments new Environmental Scheme, reflecting the sensitive way
we have always farmed the land.
We welcome visitors to the farm. For further information on farm visits and to see our News Letter click here
