Located on the beautiful Dartington Hall Estate, Old Parsonage Farm is the home of tenant farmers, Jon and Lynne Perkin.
Jon and Lynne work hard to milk 70 Jersey cows and 160 mischievous goats with the milk going to make both the Sharpham cheese and the amazing Dartington Dairy goats milk products.
The farm is farmed to organic principles and grows as many of its own crops as possible in order to provide sustainability. In addition they grow heritage wheat for milling through Dartington Mill which is used for baking at the local Almond Thief Bakery.
Other interesting projects include the the on farm milking experiences, the ‘Farmer for a Day’ experience, Deer Park Tours, agro forestry and Hemp growing.
