About Ballachrink Farm
Still very much a working farm, Ballachrink is run by Frank and Val Teare.
We have a herd of 60 suckler cows and a flock of 250 breeding ewes. We also have a small herd of pedigree Aberdeen-Angus cattle.
Calving starts at the end of February and usually goes on until May.
Lambing takes place in April and May when the days are getting longer and the weather is warmer.
The calves and lambs that are produced at Ballachrink are fattened on the farm and once ready for market are sold locally.
Grass is cut and baled during the summer months for winter feed and grain is grown to feed our cattle and sheep through the winter.
A few hens keep us supplied with fresh eggs.
The self-catering bungalow has been holiday accommodation for 15 years and we have been running the B&B for 4 years.
