What We Do


Free Range Farming

We focus on spring lambing native breed sheep and native breed cattle. Our small herd of pedigree Berkshire pigs and a handfull of farmyard hens keep us in bacon and eggs.

Eggs, Meat and Milk

We aim to produce breeding stock for sale to other farmers as well as finished beef, lamb and pork for the table. Our meat is often supplied direct to the catering trade.

About Us

New Arrivals

Having initially set up and developed a farming and cheesemaking business in Bedfordshire we moved to Chapple Farm, Dolton in 2017 in order to farm livestock on a larger scale. A traditional Devonshire holding, the land is punctuated with small ponds, mature decidious woodland and the beautiful river Torridge.

Glorious Devon

The farm is situated on the Tarka trail, surrounded by fine hostelries and within easy reach of the stunning north Devon coastline, Dartmoor and Exmoor. A great location for anything from a relaxing short break to a week of activity and local exploration. Subject to gaining planning permission we hope to offer our own barnstorming approach to agricultural hospitality at Chapple Farm.

Creative Ideas

Alongside the day to day running of the farm, Oliver is a chartered engineer with experience in architectural and structural design, sustaianble development and renewable energy. Further details are avalaible here.
