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 that the Farm Shop has been awarded Gold by the Taste of the West in 2015 for Retail Outlets. We were awarded a Bronze in 2008 and were delighted to have attained the highest grade.
NOW IN: Locally grown Cornish Early New Potatoes. Also home grown lamb and mutton - get those cook books out!
Bridgette is making pasties on Saturdays again, with sausage rolls on Fridays and Saturdays. Cauli and spring greens are still looking good and we have some excellent Cornish cheeses on the shelf.
The Latest on Our Pedigree HerdThe Trenowin herd attended the 2017 Devon Cattle Society Yearling Show at Hatherleigh and won Champion with Trenowin Quiet Man (by Trenowin Montgomery out of Berry Andante) and also had Reserve Champion with Trenowin Carmen (by Trenowin Montgomery out of Heanton Carmen).
During 2016 we had great success when we sallied forth for the showing season, at the Royal Cornwall Show where we won Breed Male Champion with Trenowin Montgomery. At the Cornwall Pedigree Calf Show we won Reserve Supreme Champion for the second year in a row this time with Trenowin Quiet Man (pictured above), a son of Trenowin Montgomery. The Trenowin herd enters the Devon Cattle Society Annual Herd Competition each year and having come second twice in 3 years, this year we won the Medium Herd Section and most importantly Best Herd in Cornwall.
In February we were shortlisted for the Addington Fund Cornwall Farm Business Awards, Beef Section, unfortunately we did not win but had a fantastic time at the awards evening and learnt so much about the Addington Fund
Calving is nearly at an end with 2 more to go. We had twins on Easter Saturday evening so our Easter egg was a double yolker! The rest of the cows and calves are doing well in the fresh spring grass although we could do with a few April Showers.
Farm Shop Opening HoursThe shop has now reopened after our calving and maintenance break.
A new hot water system in the kitchen and we've relined the chiller.
Most of the cows have calved, so its back to business as usual.
