The Farm

The Farm - A unique Island Heritage!
Heathcote Farm has remained within the McNeish family through successive generations for over 300 years.
Currently the farm is run by the present McNeish generation; Tom & Lynne & family.  They farm around 77 Acres on this site which supports a small beef herd.
In May the cows and calves are turned out to grass. Some of the fields are shut off in order to make Silage crop (winter feed) which normally takes place around mid June - early July, weather dependent of course!  After which the cows and calves graze the full scope of the farm land and are likely to be seen closer to the cottage.
In late autumn the calves are sold at market, some females are kept as replacement cows to move into the herd.  From October/ November the cows and calves come indoors for the winter.
