About The Farm
Broom House is a mixed crop and grassland farm with sheep and beef cattle. The farm is 130 hectares in size (equivalent to 180 premier league football pitches!) and wraps around the Wallington National Trust property.
The farm is a commercial business and we try to be self-sufficient by growing the crops, hay and silage needed to feed the livestock throughout the year and use the manure from the animals to fertilise the land.
Flock of Sheep
We have an established flock of 500 breeding sheep. The flock in unusual in having a mix of black and white sheep from the cross breeds we use. The busiest time of the year is in March and April, when the sheep have lambs. Look out for sheep events and open days during the lambing season.
Cows and Calves
Look out for our cows and calves grazing around the farm. We are building the beef herd to around 35 cows. The breeds we use originate from all over Europe, with British Shorthorn, French Saler and Limousin cattle and a Simmental bull called Eric, from Yorkshire!
Many other farm animals
A small flock of laying hens, three breeding pigs, a pair of pygmy goats and two donkeys also live on the farm.
Why not try the Broom House circular walk which starts at Wallington? You might be lucky enough to spot Roe deer, Buzzards or the Barn Owl currently roosting in the barns at Broom House!
