TFA Farm Walk South West Print This Post

Farm Walk South West

Thursday 24 August from 3:30 pm
The TFA’s South West Committee invites you to a farm walk at Yellowmead Farm, Sheepstor, Yelverton, Devon, PL20 6PF by kind permission of South West Regional Chair Helen Radmore, her Husband Roy and their Son Mark.

The Radmores are upland farmers on Dartmoor, with 100 beef suckler cows, 1000 mainly scotch breeding ewes with a few cheviots and mules, plus 40 Dartmoor ponies. They are tenants under both the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 and Farm Business Tenancies and have additional land on a number of grass keep agreements.

The tour will begin at 3.30 pm with introductions from the Radmores followed by a look around Yellowmead Farm at the cattle set up and stabiliser bullocks and how the Radmores use them to graze the common under Environmental Stewardship. This will be followed by a visit to Glen Iris, to look around the sheep shed and hear about the Radmore’s experience of using innovis rams. Afterwards there will be a talk from Johanna Merritt BSc (Hons) MRICS FAAV, Rural Chartered Surveyor at Robert H Hicks & Co. Jo is one of TFA’s Recommended Professionals for the South West, she will give a talk focusing on dilapidations and the use of hedgerow grants amongst other very helpful things for us, as tenants. Finished off with a BBQ and cake.
