Mr & Mrs R Clowes invite you to the Field Day at
Admergill Hall Farm
Tel: 01282 695645
Admergill Hall Farm lies in the heart of the Forest of Pendle on the edge of the Pennines, famous for outstanding views and local history. The Pendle Way Public Footpath is right on the doorstep. The farm house is a 16th century listed building.
Richard and Rachael met later in life and moved to Admergill Hall Farm three years ago. Prior to this Richard had spent his life in Dairy farming, milking 160 Brown Swiss cows and Rachael's background is as an Accident and Emergency Nurse at Airedale General Hospital.
The farm consists of a total of 246 acres, half of which is heather moorland with a small grouse population and the remainder permanent grassland with a few acres of amenity woodland. The majority of the farm is currently run on a higher level stewardship scheme.
After setting up a suckler herd initially based on a variety of mixed breeds including one or two Pedigree Red Polls, it became quickly apparent that the Red Polls were the perfect breed for what is in essence a low production farm. The Admergill herd now comprising of around 40 breeding cows from various pedigree breeders run with our stock bull Bowland Vincentio to produce quality offspring for the basis of Admergill Red Polls. The Red Polls happily share the farm with a small herd of Water Buffalo which Richard acquired before moving to Admergill. Richard and Rachael are in the early stages of developing the business and will be running a small Bed and Breakfast in the near future although there is still much work to be done. We hope you will come and enjoy a visit to our area and see the working progress.
