About

Barberic Farm = Old skills, Tasty food, Lovely wool, Good music.

Barberic Farm, Eric and Barbara Goodchild, are sustaining the skills and lifestyle their parents & grandparents had. They raise registered Romney sheep for breeding stock, meat and wool, and have a large vegetable garden.  From these they produce delicious frozen lamb, frozen meat pies, frozen fruit pies with local lard crust, preserves (jam, jelly, marmalade, pickles, relishes, fruit sauce), popcorn, eggs, honey, wool, handspun yarn, and sheepskins. In addition, they offer hand-tooled leather work, blacksmithed hand-forged items, highland bagpipe lessons, bagpiping for private gatherings and performance, and piano lessons.
