Once again Roundoak Farm are pleased to participate in our third Open Farm Sunday where this unique farming enterprise can show off its magnificent Highland cattle and Hebridean Sheep.
The farm is now well established and in the forefront of Conservation grazing in the South East of England. Our animals are seen in many Country Parks and Conservation grazing projects. We graze for the Kent County Council, Kent Wildlife Trust, Loose Valley Amenity Trust, Medway Valley Countryside Partnership and many other parish councils.
Conservation grazing is important in preserving many habitats around the County. Roundoak has been able to balance conservation needs with commercial production of the Hebridean Sheep and Highland Cattle. More information can be found on the farms website www.roundoak-hebridean.co.uk
This year the farm is focusing on the serious side of its activities and hope to show our visitors the best of our animals, - the Highland cattle with their calves, the Hebridean sheep with their lambs, Tamworth/Gloucester old spot piglets and the farms new project is the introduction of the very endanger North Ronaldsay breed of sheep which have lambed this year for the first time.
We look forward to seeing you.
