Welcome to South Penquite
South Penquite is a two hundred acre family organic beef and sheep farm situated in the heart of Cornwall - high on Bodmin Moor between the villages of Blisland and St Breward.
We are a demonstration farm for both the Soil Association and the Westcountry Rivers Trust, and as well as offering camping & yurts we have facilities and opportunities for educational groups and schools to learn about the local environment.
There is much to see on the farm which became fully organic in 2001. Since then we have continued to adopt an environmently sensitive approach including solar heated hot water and rainwater harvesting for the campsite showers, and more recently a wind turbine and solar PV panels on a barn roof.
As well as running the cows and sheep, the farm is exceptionally rich in archaeological remains and wildlife. We also have many horses, ponies, chickens, geese, ducks and of course our faithful working collies without whose help we could not run the farm.
Throughout the school holidays we are once again hosting a series of bushcraft days as well as regular pop-up restaurants from Henry Jo's Smokehouse & Blue Bus Catering providing sea-food or steaks just yards from your tent!
