Come and help us out on our farm

cows

Our farm at La Tuilerie is a mixture of woodland and grazing pasture spread over 240 acres of beautiful rolling countryside. We breed pure Limousin cows and Charollais/ Texel sheep and have a number of free range hens and ducks. Not forgetting Larry the llama, always a favourite with the kids.

The beauty of Limousin Farm Holidays is that you can enjoy getting close to the animals and learning from Hugh and Michael about good farming practice and animal welfare. The wonder of seeing a lamb or calf born is something that we believe everyone should experience, young and old. And if you want to help us out, there’s always something practical to do. Our young visitors love feeding the chickens and collecting their eggs. And there are plenty of strawberries and other succulent fruit and vegetables to pick in season too. If you want to know what happens when the camping season ends, take a look at our farm year.

We’re committed to good practice

We believe in animal welfare and sustainable farming practice. Our cows are fed nothing but grass in the summer and preserved grass (hay or silage), in the winter. As many of our ewes produce twins or triplets every year, we feed them a high quality cereal based food before and after lambing to ensure they produce enough milk to feed their lambs.

We work hard to conserve our natural habitats and encourage wildlife everywhere on the farm. We offer holidays that fulfil ecotourism principles.
