We kept pigs and cows at the farm up until 2017 – they were a key part of the The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm’s integrated agriculture approach.
We are not keeping animals at the moment and will update this page if anything changes.
The photo below in 2017 shows one of our lovely Red Poll cows and before that we had two Jersey cows – more information can be found here. And details about our lats (2017) beef shares can be found here
Up until 2017 we also kept pigs and we moved them around the farm in electric fenced enclosures to clear, cultivate and prepare land for vegetable crops. Further information can be found here And details about our last (2017) Pork Shares can be found here
The Oak Tree has kept chickens since 2012 and continues to do so
Our original breeds included: Plymouth Barred Rock, Ixworth, Buff Sussex, Light Sussex, Speckled Sussex, Gold Laced Orpington and Rhode Island Reds.
We have bred from these to produce robust, improved dual purpose chickens that suit the Oak Tree environment
