About Fre-Da-Ro Farm
Fre-Da-Ro Farm is an organic sheep, chicken and grain farm with a small breeding herd of Lowline Angus cattle.

The farm has “farm gate” sales of chickens, lamb and eggs. We are also in the process of renovating the office into a shop and opening the farm to the public for self guided tours, our aim being to give people positive experiences of farming and agriculture.

It is our goal to steward the land, animals and environment well.
