On the Farm

The farm

Not only are we a working farm with our cattle, sheep and pigs on the Holmedale Valley of the Yorkshire Dales; we also grow our own wheat to provide feed for our animals during winter. With lots going on all-year round, there is always something to see here at Mainsgill Farm - from silaging, to lambing! We also have many animals for you to visit on our farm!

Coming up on the farm

Here at Mainsgill lambing time will be upon us! We have about 400 texel ewes to lamb this Spring!
