We are a family farm with Simon and Claire Bainbridge, our two children Abigail and George and Simons parents, Ivan and Elisabeth. We farm 1,650 acres of the Northumberland uplands organically.
With 160 Suckler Cows, 1,500 breeding ewes and 24,000 free range layers we are kept pretty busy. We produce all the feed for the sheep and cattle on the holding and produce all our own replacements for the breeding stock on the farm.
The simple yet efficient nature of Simon Bainbridge’s Angus and Hereford cross-bred suckler herd is a tribute to his clear focus.
We are aiming to produce a versatile sheep that can live in the Northumberland Uplands, yet still produce good lambs to sell commercially.
Our 12,000 organic hens have access to 15 acres of grass, trees and hedges all planted for them.
