Will Case farms 300ha (750 acres) in partnership with brother Simon and parents William and Margaret at Ulverston, Cumbria. Land is divided between Plumpton Cottage Farm and Robbs Water Farm, Barrow-in- Furness. They farm 1,000 lowland ewes, 90 pedigree Texel ewes, 65 Salers suckler cows, fatten 150 store cattle, 12,000 freerange laying hens and 100 dairy cows milked by robots.
The unbeatable feeling of getting home to the farm after 11 weeks on the other side of the world is something I cannot really describe. After an exhausting four days travelling from Invercargill to Auckland in New Zealand, then London via Singapore, landing on home soil among my sheep, dogs and family was very much welcomed.

All roads in the West Country lead to Exeter and converge together like the spokes of a wheel. Wedged between two of those spokes is our farm, Mosshayne, more or less the first farm you would come to if you set out from the centre of Exeter and walked east along the railway.
