Welcome to Blackberry Farm
Blackberry farm is home to Mike, Lizzy and their three children. Mike specialises in breeding and showing pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle for which he has won many great accolades including the Queen Mothers Cup at Royal Smithfield.
The farm also supports a mixed breeding flock of sheep which include Romneys, Texels and Suffolks.
Lizzy opened their award winning farm shop in her little larder in 2002. The business has steadily grown and her new shop at Blackberry Farm is surrounded by farmland and has stunning views of Dartmoor. She also conducts the farm tours and visits local schools to help children learn about the relationship between farming and food.
Lizzy is passionate about food and together with Gillian & Jen they cook much of the delicious fayre served in the tearoom and sold in the shop.
