Argae Cottage is our family farm. Run by Catriona and Jonathan Benson, with help from our three sons.
We are both Veterinary Surgeons, working in our practice in Shrewsbury when not on the farm.
Animal welfare is a the heart of what we do here - we farm on a very small scale, allowing us to care for our animals as individuals.
Jeff & Timmy
Catriona with one of Katy's piglets
Jonathan, with our turkeys.
Other vital members of our team are our dogs, Timmy and Jeff. Jeff is becoming a very useful sheepdog - thankfully removing the need for the entire family to be involved every time the sheep are rounded up.
Timmy is more of a spectator, but we love him anyway!
Some of our animals....
Twin Lleyn lambs enjoying the sunset
Fidget - bottle fed as a lamb, now a member of our breeding flock - but still happy to sit on your lap!
Chloe, one of our homebred Shetland cows.
We are proud to hold a '5 star' food hygiene rating.
We are also registered and fully licensed for our turkey preparation, under the WATOK regulations.
