Cows

Our farming operation at Occombe has 3 main herds of red ruby cows, with a bull in each and located at Cockington, Maidencombe and Occombe.  Red Rubies are originally from the Southwest, mostly in Devon, Cornwall and Dorset, and have been grazed in these counties since 55 B.C. when the Romans were around.

Currently, in residence on our Animal Paddocks Trail, is a friendly mum and her calf, for you to meet. Get up close to this stunning pair and discover many more interesting facts about this local breed.
