Hello from Deane Farm
Welcome to our new website! At Deane Farm, we are always keen to engage with the latest agricultural technologies to move the business forward but launching deane-valley.com is exciting new territory for us. During the spring months we have been busily working with Chris at Persoma and his colleagues to create a platform showing the many aspects of farm life as well as the products and services we offer. If we’re only just meeting you, Deane Farm is a mixed farm nestled in the rolling valleys of Stokeinteignhead where we are proud to produce crops and livestock to high assurance and welfare standards. We supply feed, bedding and rural contracting services and in the future will be increasing availability of our pasture reared meats and eggs through our enterprise Deane Valley Produce. Now our website is ready and raring to go, you can access details of all our products and services with guideline prices and get in touch by phone our via the website contact page. We are also excited to be launching this blog to share a monthly seasonal update with you about what the team are up to across our crop, sheep, cattle, poultry and pig enterprises. We are passionate about minimising and sharing the farm to fork journey and exciting updates will be announced such as when our delicious Deane Valley Produce products are available and farm walk dates. To make sure you don’t miss out, this is one of the great reasons to join our mailing list and follow us on Facebook. As June progresses, at Deane Farm we are getting ready for the start of the harvest season. Throughout the spring, we have been busy planting and tending to the crops as well as catching up with machinery maintenance. The increasing temperatures mean the sheep have been shorn and the hens are happy to be back out to pasture now the bird flu restrictions have been lifted. A dry spring has not been without its problems and although May brought a little moisture, as a valley sheltered under Dartmoor with a quick drying soil type, we would have liked higher rainfall after planting the spring crops. However, we must be optimistic and hope for a good summer to crack on with the harvest when the time comes. We look forward to sharing life at Deane Farm with you. If you have any enquiries, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to help.
