About Mosedale End Farm -Sorry we do not offer help the farmer or work experience days.
You might hear 'come bye or away' as my 'One Man and his dogs' fetches in the sheep for a health check or moves them to a new field. In spring the fields are full of Ewes and Lambs and in summer we are busy hay making plus shearing. We have about 800 Swaledale and Mule ewes and 25 beef suckler cows and calves and 1 bull. There is also our free range hens which you can feed.
The farm is in an environmental stewardship scheme which means we get paid to look after the beautiful landscape by doing things like not using to much artificial fertilizer & encouraging wild flowers, cutting hedges in autumn so not to disturb nesting birds in spring and repairing the stone walls.
There is abundance of wild life here at Mosedale- frogs spawn in early spring, cuckoos shout in May, swallows return & buzzards nest in local woods. Roe deer, foxes and a badger set at the bottom of Carrock fell. We even get the occasional Red Squirrel and weasel.

We are lucky to have dark skies where you can see the Stars Sparkle or even do a romantic moon light walk home from the pub.
