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: Home grown fresh Red Ruby Beef air dried in our chiller with Himalayan rock salt.
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 2015 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.
During 2016 we had great success when we sallied forth for the showing season, at the Royal Cornwall Show 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, a son of Trenowin Montgomery. But most importantly we enter 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, we collect our cups in April at the Society's AGM.
In March 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 coming to an end, with only a few left to calve. The cows and calves are out by day 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.
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.
