Lochmeyler currently farms about 400 acres in total, and is primarily a Dairy Farm.
We are happy for our guests to explore the farm – children must be supervised and dogs kept on leads. There is an under-cover viewing gallery to watch our cows being milked.
There are approximately 400 milking cows which are mainly British Friesians.
The cows are milked twice daily from 6.00am – 8.30am and 4.00pm – 6.30pm (milking times are approximate and dependent on who is milking them!).. We have a spring calving herd which means we do not milk the cows in April – June, and all our calves are born from the beginning of March to the end of May.
