The Farm

Located on the slopes of May Hill, Gloucestershire, New House Farm stretches over 80 acres of grass and woodland.

Farmed by Nigel & Rosemary Smith with help from their family , New House Farm is home to a pedigree herd of English Longhorn cattle, as well as Suffolk and Texel sheep. The farm also offers Bed & Breakfast accommodation and a Shepherd’s Hut – visit New House Farm Bed & Breakfast for more information.

The Herd

Our home-bred and grass-fed English Longhorn cattle have been raised and grazed on the farm since 2011, when Nigel bought his first pedigree Longhorn cow & heifer calf from Cirencester market. Since then, the pedigree Aston Longhorn herd has grown to over 40 cattle, and is registered with the Longhorn Cattle Society.

Reared by traditional methods, our Longhorns are 100% grass-fed – just as the native breed would have been over 100 years ago.

The Flock

Our flock is made up of a mix of Suffolk and Texel sheep and has grown over the past few years to around 50 breeding ewes. Like our Longhorn cattle, the sheep are reared using traditional methods and again are 100% grass-fed.
