Little Bracken can be best described as a small, family farm which provides plenty of work and interesting activities for a young and inquisitive family. The farming policy is based on securing the livelihood, coupled with what we believe are good, modern practices. A rotation is practised whereby grass leys are utilized by a dairy herd of some thirty cows plus a similar number of followers of various ages. Cereals and oil seed rape form the bulk of the arable side of the farm with cereal by-products i.e. straw being utilized by the livestock, the resulting farmyard manure being returned to the land.
