Angus Heifers gain their independence

This evening marks the moment when our Angus heifers, Belle and Buttercup, gain their independence as they are weaned from their mothers. Weaning is the process by which young cows are separated from their mothers in order for their mothers to gain a well earned rest and put on some condition before calving in 2018. The calves are meeting some of our newest additions to the Belmont Farm family more information on them coming shortly!

Meet Steve the Sulcata Tortoise!

Steve is the newest resident at Belmont Farm! He is 3 years young and already weighs 15kgs! He will grow to be a giant, weighing over 90kgs! He will need up to 4 people to lift him, but luckily at the moment he is not too difficult to lift and has settled in wonderfully. He loves spending sunny days out in the paddock with our continental rabbits! 

He will be enjoying the sunshine and would love to meet you all over summer as during the winter he will spend most of his time buried in his den, fast asleep!

Black Sheep Brewery

Black Sheep Brewery

Belmont Farm was contacted by a PR company acting on behalf of Black Sheep Brewery and asked us to supply two black sheep for the promotion of a new beer especially brewed for Ember Inns! With this in mind we took Alice and Julien our Zwartble sheep who fitted the criteria perfectly along to the Crabtree pub near Hemel Hempstead for a mornings photo shoot! The sheep behaved extremely well both inside and outside of the pub and have since been in publications from the Yorkshire post to the Telegraph!
