Join our walking tour to see seasonal activities on our working dairy, beef and sheep farm. Hear about the history of our farm and see how recent changes in the way we manage the farm mean we now exceed the highest UK welfare standards. We are striving for a sustainable organic farming system where our animals are robust and long-lived, our land is healthy and our farm supports a huge diversity of wildlife.
You will be guided around the farm buildings, hearing about Rainton’s history and the things that keep us busy today, including our commitment to 100% cow contentment and how we're generating green energy from slurry! This is just one of the reasons why our business holds a Gold Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme http://www.green-tourism.com/visit/cream-o-galloway-dairy-co-ltd/listing....
On this tour you'll see lots of other things we do to 'reduce, reuse and recycle' and how we're trying to be as sustainable as possible in how we manage our farm.
At certain times of year we will introduce you to our new calves and lambs.
