Farming

CIDERS & ALES

Herefordshire is proud of its heritage as the real home of cider. There are international names you will recognise, like Bulmers and Westons. However it is just as noteworthy for the abundance of smaller independent local brewers taking advantage of our unique climate and conditions to produce such high- quality varieties of cider. Brewing is not just limited to cider, with the award-winning Wye Valley Brewery producing much-loved beers such as Butty Bach and Hereford Pale Ale.

HEREFORD CATTLE

The Hereford breed of cattle is one of the oldest and is famous the world over for its distinctive physical shape and colour. Over five million pedigree Hereford cattle are farmed in over fifty countries worldwide, dominating the modern cattle trade. Despite its worldwide fame, the breed is still a familiar sight in Lyonshall today, as well as being prominently featured in agricultural shows across the UK. The prestigious herd is kept by Kinsey and his family and will continue to graze the fields surrounding Webbs Meadow.

RYELAND SHEEP

Ryeland sheep date back to medieval times where they were renowned for the quality of their wool. Originally from Leominster, Queen Elizabeth I would insist on clothes made of their wool. Ryeland numbers declined in the 20th century but are happily on the increase now. They have a very distinctive appearance and often you will see grey or brown shades within the flock. We’re very proud of our Ryelands and so they’re a common sight across Kinsey’s farm on the edge of Lyonshall.
