Our family have been farming here at Worswell Barton for over 85 years. It has seen many changes through those years, as dairy farm up to 1976, and now a mixed farm with, Cattle, Sheep, Chickens, and Vegetables which we sell on our little roadside stall in the villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers, part of our Wurzell Farm Fresh Veggies. We grow a variety of crops, such as Oil Seed Rape, Wheat, Barley, Potatoes. Conservation is taken very seriously here at Worswell, we help look after the birds, bees, flora and forna, with Margins around our fields, and over winter stubles.
Our suckler cow herd of South Devons and Charollais are often kept on the cliffs with their young calves, helping with the good husbandry and conservation of the cliff ground, along with a flock of sheep, which we lamb in February / March /April.
We have taken on many different projects over the years along with the National Trust to Keep Worswell Barton as traditional as possible.
One project was to re-roof the property, and with a grant, put solar panels in to supply our hot water.
We also save our rainwater, in large tanks for the farm to use, whether to feed the cattle and sheep during the winter, or for Feeding crops during a dry period.
The latest project is to repair the Warren Wall, which, in places, has fallen down. To date, we have managed to repair one section, using local labour and materials. This project will continue over a number of years aided by donations and HLS grant. The National trust are great supporters in helping us achieve our goals, here at Worswell Barton
