Welcome to the Hawkley Herd
Welcome to the website of Berry Grove Farm, a 300 acre mixed farm in Hampshire, and home of the Whitcombe family. Bought by the family in 1964 it was for many years home to an Ayrshire dairy herd, and a well known flock of Suffolk sheep. In 1990 since the farm was divided by construction of the A3 road, we have farmed here and have established pedigree herds of South Devon and Red Angus cattle, and continued a family pedigree flock of Border Leicester sheep, which was established in 1942. We manage the farm ourselves, with part time help; the livestock being our main source of income.
We have had great enjoyment, satisfaction and
some success with our South Devons. However, we decided reluctantly to
sell the herd in 2018. Hawkley South Devon genetics will still be
available through Genus - who bought Hawkley Poll Inquest and Hawkley
SAS Intrepid, and through Cogent - who bought Hawkley SAS Javelin.
