ChurchView Farm in County Down is probably best known for its dairy goat herd which was started in 1989.
Well-known in the agricultural competition circuit, having won countless UK awards, there is nothing the Ringland family don’t know about goats!
In the past 2 years, Churchview has started a new venture;
breeding goats for meat to sell directly from the farm to its customers, and it is being very well received, especially over the last few months.
A relatively young participant to Open Farm Weekend, having started in 2018, the family love welcoming people from all walks of life to the farm to see their animals up close, have a go at feeding kids or milking a goat and enjoying potatoes, sweetcorn and particularly strawberries grown directly in their polytunnel.
They agree the new virtual format is great for the current situation and look forward to connecting with the public online and again at future Open Farm Weekends’.
