  • Warson Farm, Devon

    Beautiful Devon Pasture

    Plenty of Sunshine and Rain

    The farm is in West Devon between Dartmoor and Bodmin moor. It is mainly a grassland farm, with some arable. Our cattle are fed on what we grow ourselves. The good thing about having 60” of rain annually is that we have plenty of excellent grass! 

    We passionately believe in grass-fed beef farming - for distinctive eating, environmental and production quality. 

  • Warson Farm House and Barns

    Great Heritage

    An area steeped in history

    The earliest known record of Warson is in William The Conqueror’s Doomsday Book of 1087.  More recently, in 1878, the then owner Sabine Baring Gould created a training centre at Warson for apprentices.  

    His model farm with its large stone barns and living quarters survive to this day. More recently in 2010 the farm has been modernised and extended to house a cattle breeding enterprise.

  • Aberdeen-Angus and Ruby Red Devon Pedigree Cattle at Warson Farm

    Native Breeds

    Aberdeen-Angus & Ruby Red Devon

    We focus on 2 native breeds, namely our local Red Ruby Devon and the internationally renowned Aberdeen-Angus. 

    Both breeds are hardy enough to cope well with our bracing weather. They are efficient, docile breeds which complement each other.

    We have about 280 pedigree Angus breeding females. 

  • Luther - Devon County Show 2014 Native Inter-breed champion

    The Best Genetics

    The Highest Health Standards

    We strive for the best combination of genetic breed traits to produce fine cattle.

    Our champion Red Ruby Devon bull “Luther” is one such example. He won the native inter-breed championship at the Devon County Show. 

    Our senior Angus bull is Rawburn Jagger Eric. There is no better bull in the breed for calving ease with a higher Terminal Index, Self Replacing Index and Cow Efficiency trait (milkiness). 

    At the same time we adhere to the demanding "Elite" health CHeCS accreditation standard; so that we are able to export livestock and provide semen for AI customers.
