Scales Farm is an Upland Beef and Sheep Farm extending to approx 720 acres and running to 1150ft. We are a family run farm and sell all stock at local markets.
We run 1000 breeding ewes, complimented by 70 beef sucklers.
The Farm is in a number of environmental schemes aimed at maintaining wildlife habitat that might otherwise be lost through many modern farming practices.
We lamb a small group of sheep in February and the main flock in April.
Our cows calve in two groups, one in Spring and one in the Autumn.
In addition to all this we have various donkeys, horses, ducks, chickens and too many cats and dogs.
In fact most waifs and strays find their way to Scales.
We are mainly a working farm and must therefore always put our stock first and with this in mind we would ask our guests to always stick to our extensive footpath network and observe any warning or info signs we may put in place. This is to ensure the welfare of our stock and your own personal safety and enjoyment.
