Higher Trenowin lies mid-way between Penzance and St Ives and has wonderful views from coast to coast across Cornwall.
Our Red Ruby Devons
Our herd of pedigree Red Ruby Devons forage amongst the gorse and heather for the tasty herbage that helps to make their meat taste so good. The Devon heifer calves that are born each year are kept for breeding and the bull calves are fattened for the Farm Shop.
Our Farm Shop
The farm shop is a big part of the farm where as well as our own beef, we sell seasonal vegetables grown on the farm and other locally grown fruit and vegetables. We pride ourselves that vegetables travel only yards not miles to be in our Farm Shop! We also sell local pork from which we make our own sausages and cure our own bacon. We sell local lamb that has been grazed at Higher Trenowin during the year. The eggs are from local free range hens, and are also in the cakes and biscuits that Bridgette bakes and sells in the shop. Jams and preserves made by Brigette are available on the shelves along with local honey.
Gold AwardWe are so pleased to announce that the Farm Shop has been awarded Gold by the Taste of the West who run a competion each year for Retail Outlets. We were awarded a Bronze in 2008 and entered again this year and were delighted to have attained the highest grade.
NOW IN: Cornish Earlies - freshly dug from our neighbours in Ludgvan, ideal with the local lamb we have in, for your Easter Lunch. Bridgette is making pasties on Saturdays again, with sausage rolls on Fridays and Saturdays. Cauli and spring greens are on the shelves despite the very cold weather, we are still managing to supply our customers.
The Latest on Our Pedigree HerdThe winter was good to us for showing as we went to Helston Fatstock Show and came home with a first and second in the 100% Native Breed Class, as well as the Truro Primestock show and got a 1st and 3rd and awarded the Charles Jasper cup for Best Devon exhibited. We are now getting a couple of yearling heifers and a bull ready for the Devon Society Yearling Show at Hatherleigh later in April and we have also got an eye on the Royal Cornwall Show BUT everything depends on a clear TB Test. Watch this space!
As members of the West Penwith Beef Group we have entered the annual herd competition which was judged by Messrs. James and Martin Eustice from Wadebridge. We were delighted to be awarded a second in the Pedigree herd class and also got 3rd for the Pedigree Cow & Calf class with Garradon Daphne and her bull calf Trenowin William.
Calving is coming to an end, with only Gem left to calve. The cows are rapidly eating the kale and not long now before turn-out, which is our favourite time of the year. It is fantastic to see all the cows kicking up their heels and so happy to be out at grass after a long winter.

We have some maintenance work to carry out in the shop and kitchen and it is also our main calving period.
