Kimley Moor Farm has been in the same family since 1714. It was intensively farmed using local labour and the 140 acres produced market garden crops of potatoes, cauliflower, cabbage and swede as well as corn and hay to for the cattle and sheep. Over the years modern machinery has replaced local labour.
Kimley Moor Farm was originally part of Penrice estate until 1950, when the estate was sold due to death duties, farmers were given the opportunity to buy their farms.
My grandmother made her own butter in the dairy which was in Butterslade Cottage using the butter churn which is also in that cottage. She took it to Swansea market to sell along with other produce grown on the Kimley Moor. The horse collars and bridles which are displayed in the cottages, were the originals on the working horses Bess and Nelly, the plough they pulled is also still here on the farm.
John & Kaye converted these barns originally over the many years they were used for milking cows and so we had to remove all the mangers and iron work, but basically have kept the barn as it was all those years ago.
Both cottages are on Kimley Moor Farm which is an Organic working farm mainly farming sheep.
