The Gillbard family bought the farm in 1929 and we are now the third and fourth generation to live and work on Blackadon. Our 220 acre farm(including the land at Great Trethew) is a mixture of grass pastures, arable fields and woodland and there is nowhere else we'd rather call home. We take pride in the products that we produce:
  • Lambs and Ewes
  • Hay, Haylage and Straw
  • Barley and Oats
  • Allotments
We also offer contractor services including digger hire, corn drying, ploughing, power harrow drilling, combining and conventional baling. Please contact us for prices or see our other pages for more information.

In February each year, the East Cornwall Hunt holds the point to point races in our field. Horse and riders from past events have gone on from these races to compete at the highest level of national hunt racing. Open to the public, it's a good day out for those keen on horse racing!
