About Dougarie Farming

The Estate currently manages an in-hand farm of 1,500 acres both of lowland pasture and upland grazing. We are always looking to continuously develop our farming enterprise and completed our organic accreditation in 2022. We are committed to the highest standards of animal welfare and husbandry. The Estate currently manages a flock of 600 North Country Cheviot sheep and may look to diversify this further at a later stage.

Grazing Lifestock

We operate an extensive pasture based production system where grazing livestock are an integral and essential habitat management resource. Over the next decade we are looking to invest into our farming business to ensure the long-term financial sustainability and to align our goals along with those of the best agricultural and conservation practices. This investment will include work on buildings, reseeding of grassland, field drainage and fencing renewals.
