We are a family run business based in Somerset and Carmarthenshire, however our services cover a wider area in the South-west and South Wales. We visit farms in areas such as Exmouth, Shaftesbury, Wadebridge, Newport and Carmarthen. Our focus is farm livestock, particularly dairy and we treat your business as if it were our own, offering a bespoke and highly competitive priced skill set.

We recognise the importance of improving performance and profitability through training for vets and farmers. This has led us to become an approved LANTRA Training Provider, Farming Connect Lifelong Learning and Development Programme course provider, RoMS Training Provider and offer from clinical to preventative management courses. Having undertaken instructional skills training, we feel we can relate well to the needs of businesses, using training as a tool for changing behaviour. Our specific range of courses can be found under our Farm Courses page.
