Broom House Farm, Witton Gilbert, Durham, COUNTY DURHAM & TYNE AND WEAR DH7 6TR

Broom House is a windy spot at 750 feet, with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside, when the weather allows! The farm steading is on the top of the hill and the farmland rolls down the valley to the River Browney. Broom House is a livestock farm – so most of our fields grow grass and clover mixes. Some arable crops, such as oats and barley are grown, as well as peas and forage crops like kale – with the aim of creating a healthy rotation to improve the soil so that we can produce as much of our own feed for the animals as possible. We have a herd of beautiful Aberdeen Angus cattle, as well as a large flock of Lleyn sheep and a small herd of Saddleback pigs as well as a flock of laying hens. The aim is to breed all replacement animals on the farm, enabling us to improve the quality of our livestock through breeding.

Our animals are reared outside on grass and clover pastures in the drier months, with the young stock in particular being kept inside on straw in our barns during the muddiest winter months. We manage our livestock to the highest standards of welfare, with minimum use of medicines and bought in feeds and in October 2007 we obtained full organic status for the farm. All the farmland is organic, inspected annually by Organic Farmers & Growers. We are members of the British Red Tractor Assurance Scheme and are working towards Pasture Fed Livestock accreditation.
