Askerton is a SA organic livestock farm specialising in native hardy breeds in the wild countryside near Hadrian’s Wall in North East Cumbria. Much of the farm is in Higher Level Stewardship and is an area of outstanding beauty. Visitors are always welcome. Animal health and welfare is paramount as is wildlife conservation and a sustainable rural economy.
We rear Belted Galloway beef, Tamworth pigs, Blackface sheep and a variety of poultry – layers and table birds, ducks and geese. Occasionally alpaca. All the farm’s meat is prepared at the farm butchery – this gives full control over the quality and presentation. Produce is available from the farm, via mail order and from a variety of markets and fairs. We also have a home delivery service around Cumbria
