Richard and Merryn Gillbard

We are the fourth generation of Gillbards living at Blackadon Farm. Before that, the family originated from the Davidstowe area in Cornwall. We pride ourselves on producing high quality grain, hay, haylage and straw and maintaining a high standard of welfare for our smallish flock of commercial ewes, alongside looking after the environment. We also run a 50 plot allotment site and have opened our farm up to events such as a vintage rally.

We have a number of wildlife friendly areas on our farm where you can spot deer, a variety of wild birds (including two Canada Geese who visit us every year) and a bee colony. This year we have started a miniature orchard with the introduction of 6 fruit trees, with plans to add more over the next couple of years.
