Farm Blog

Welcome to our farm blog

Unlike most farms the Coopers Farm team are very open to sharing our stories at the farm. There is often a degree of banter but we find too many people are disconnected to where their food comes from. Furthermore, few customers appreciate the wide selection of wonderful cuts of meat which are available. Our farm blog gives regular news through the seasons, however, for day to day activity please follow our facebook page.
