Our Family Farm


When the M6 was built through our family farm in Cumbria, our first motorway service area was born. Our farm still feeds our business and our farm heritage is important in everything we do.

We farm nearly 1,000 acres of wild Cumbrian upland. We raise our animals as they have been raised for generations. We treat them with the respect they deserve. We do not cut corners.

Our hardy flock of almost 2,000 sheep live outside throughout the year. We have a mix of Texel and North Country Mules alongside the famous local Herdwick breed.

March is a busy time on the farm as we bring our sheep in and the lambs begin to arrive.

Our Farm Manager, Bob Day, joined us as a shepherd over 30 years ago. Under Bob’s attentive eye, our lambs are born and soon venture out into the fields.

You can find Beef and Lamb from our family farm in our Farmshop Butchery at Tebay Services.
