NEW ADDITIONS:

Mango our Curly Coated Sow is due a litter of piglets in late April, she has been crossed with a Duroc Boar so we are looking forward to lots of piglets.

BELTIE AND ISHCA

BELTIE AND ISHCA

Our Llamas were born in 2010, Beltie, the male, wears a head collar and is slightly bigger than his female mate, Ischa. They stay out in the field during the summer months but you may find the field empty due to the weather or the field needing to be rested after they’ve eaten all the grass. They’re great friends (although Beltie is greedy and will eat Ischa’s food given half the chance) and communicate by humming.

MANGO

MANGO

Our curly haired Managalitsa sow is a breed that originates in Hungary with a name that means ‘hog with a lot of lard’. Mango is one of our top breeding pigs and has had 3 litters to date with another due in April 2016. Her breeding partner is Braveheart, a Duroc Boar from Askrigg. Mango is an excellent mother and has produced dozens of hardy and very noisy piglets.

TIGER AND TRAFFIC

TIGER AND TRAFFIC

Our Kune Kune pigs (Pronounced Cooney Cooney) are siblings, born in December 2011 and are much loved pets by all at Berry’s. The breed originates in New Zeland and the word Kune Kune means round and fat in Mauri. They are popular participants of Berry’s family days, leading the way on animal walks, and they like a good scratch behind the ears from visitors. We are always on the lookout for a handsome husband for Traffic.

CHARLIE

CHARLIE

Charlie is our Golden Partridge Brahma Cockerel, this splendid breed is often called the ‘King of Chicken Breeds’. Charlie is a very well-behaved cockerel, the breed is naturally quiet and Charlie doesn’t crow very loudly at all. He only has one wife at the moment but we are planning to increase the family with a batch of chicks due to hatch this Easter.

DORIS

DORIS

Doris is our infamous pygmy goat; she is small but very feisty. She can be very naughty and has to be kept on a lead on our animal walks. Doris is a mum to our new little billy, Black Adder. If Doris isn’t in the pen (or wandering around) she’ll be in the field opposite the shop entrance with Elspeth, the Manx Loaghtan Sheep.

BLACK ADDER

BLACK ADDER

Black Adder is Doris' son, born August 2016. Like all Pygmy Goats he has learnt that stone walls are to be climbed and fences are for going under. He has definitley inherited his mum's bad behaviour!

ELSPETH

ELSPETH

Elspeth is our Manx Loaghtan Sheep, one of the oldest and most striking breeds of sheep in the UK. Elspeth is very friendly, well behaved and, most importantly, leader of the ‘Team’. When out of the pen, she is usually seen following shortly behind Bridget, Berry’s human Team leader. Elspeth was Bridget’s first pet lamb.

ROLO

ROLO

Rolo is our Mini Shetland Pony, he is a very good-natured Shetland pony who loves to eat. He enjoys being brushed on family days and gives the occasional pony ride.

HARRY

HARRY

Harry is our pet ‘lamb’ although he is now larger than Rolo the mini Shetland pony. He was born in 2014 and is a Texel cross, he can be seen wearing a headcollar and we are hoping he will pull the cart.

THE HIGHLAND COWS

THE HIGHLAND COWS

Our resident Highland Cows are all aged around 11 years old and arrived at Berry’s in November 2015 with calves that have now been weaned. Our black Highland Cow welcomed a calf in March 2016. The calves that were born in late 2015 have just had their horns removed.

THE SUCKLER HERD

THE SUCKLER HERD

These are our South Devon Cattle, they supply Berry’s with beef for the butcher’s counter and the café. They can be found on our grassy fields where they like to graze with their calves.

FLOPSEY AND LOPSEY

FLOPSEY AND LOPSEY

Flopsey and Lopsey are brothers and are two of Berry’s newest residents. They are a cross breed between Lion Lop Rabbits and the Mini Lop. They have very floppy ears and blue/grey eyes. Flopsey and Lopsey are already firm favourites with visitors on our farm tour and love to be cuddled.
