The Farm has a herd of Highland Cattle on the hills above the Farm. The Young stock are fattened for the meat to be used in the Restaurant. The cattle at Swanston graze in the natural conditions you see at the farm, with most of the stock being kept at 800 feet or higher. In winter cows and calves graze our hill ground with some hay, molasses and minerals to supplement the available grass. The Young stock are fattened for meat production to be used in the Restaurant.
There is a flock of 100 Scottish greyface and Texel cross ewes on the farm grazing on the hill and in the fields. Our Lamb and Mutton is available in the Restaurant. In winter they are fed on hay and a small amount of cereals at Lambing.
We have 60 free range hens on the farm, we produce eggs for the restaurant and sell any surplus. The chickens can be seen in the fields just below Swanston Village.
In the future we are thinking of opening a farm shop.
