About Meldon Farm

Meldon sits on the foothills of Dartmoor and is ideally placed to make use of Dartmoor's riding and grazing. Traditionally horses were used by farmers for tending their stock on Dartmoor. Whilst most farmers now use quad bikes, we have found for our terrain and our cattle, horses are a better option.

'Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction!'

'Behind every successful Dartmoor farmer, is a wife that works in town!'
