Rare Breed White Park Cattle at Farringford

Three of our beautiful White Park cattle gave birth to bull calves this spring bringing the total number of our herd to 14.

Rare breed White Park cattle

White Park cattle are the UK’s oldest rare cattle breed dating back 2,000 years. We move them between three fields, so that sometimes they can be seen in the field just behind the swimming pool. They are also often visible from the footpath which heads straight up to Tennyson Down from our gate.
