Turnworth and Ringmoor

Turnworth Down (including Ringmoor) is a beautiful 130 acre National Trust Nature Reserve including the following habitats: extensive wood pasture, species rich chalk and neutral grasslands and very extensive remains of iron age field systems and a ring enclosure. There are also extensive medieaval quarrying remains, a dew pond and many veteran trees and pollards. There is a mixed herd of 20 native cattle, including North Devon, Hereford and Aberdeen Angus. The cows are suckler cows which rear their own calves for nine months and produce beef calves for sale in the autumn. In the long term the breeding policy will move more towards North Devon suckler cows with an Aberdeen Angus bull.
