We are a family of 4 (Ian, Sarah and 2 boys Ali and Edward), living and working on our dairy goat farm near Wells, in beautiful Somerset. We have about 100 goats as well as a small number of pigs, sheep and donkeys.
We make a range of cheeses, yoghurt and cream and sell our produce across the South West. We also have an eco-friendly campsite.
We're surrounded by great places to explore, either walking or cycling around the Mendip Hills or visiting place like Wells, Glastonbury, Bath and Bristol.
