We describe our approach to farming as 'traditional modern'.

For several years we farmed organically, but did not see any difference between organic and the best conventional systems that we now adopt. We believe that providing the best possible environment and welfare for our stock is more important than adhering to a regime. We pride ourselves on the quality of stockmanship and management at Lowther and adopt an extensive system which combines all the environmental issues that need to be maintained whilst holding a profitable business.
