We have a herd of Pedigree North Devon Cattle (Ruby Reds). Each cow has a calf once a year, the female calves stay in the herd for their entire lifetime and the male calves are sold at the local market three miles away at 12-14 months of age. The North Devons are traditional to this area and are very hardy to withstand the wind coming off the atlantic which can be very forceful, especially during the winter. We farm in an extremely environmentally sensitive way, farming with nature not against it. Due to the coastal location of Trevigue farm the only crop grown in the fields is lush grass for the cows to eat and to be cut and made into winter fodder (silage, haylage and hay).
Farming Trevigue is a real labour of love and hopefully that shows in the quality of cattle and beautiful unspoilt surroundings! The bright sunny days on the cliffs in the spring and summer, gazing out to sea on a clear day looking at Lundy island, make it an amazing place to live and farm. We believe we are custodians of the land and will do our best to look after it for the generations to come.
