John Rowland

Low Beckside Farm, Mungrisdale

John Rowland shepherds Swaledales and Cheviots at Low Beckside Farm which nestles in the lee of a bracken-covered fell in Mungrisedale, to the east of Keswick.

We spent a cold February morning with him while he oversaw the scanning of his ewes - and reported on it in this blog. We also joined him when the lambs were born, and witnessed his gentleness and strength as he helped the youngsters and mothers settle together.

Low Beckside is a Newton Rigg College farm and welcomes students of upland farming for additional hands-on learning.
