Lovaton Farm – Home of Dexter Beef.

Lovaton is an award-winning, family-run Devon farm, with an in-house butchery. Buy Dexter Beef, Gloucester Old Spot Pork & Lleyn Lamb direct from Lovaton Farm ensuring you are enjoying high quality traditionally reared meat with complete traceability, from ”the fields to your fork”


When Jane Barber took over the farm from her father in 1999, it was her intention to renovate the farmhouse to start a B&B business. Jane’s first purchase was a Gloucester Old Spot named Penny to clear the paddock of brambles and weeds. However, Penny caught the roving eye of Rufus the boar and in less than 12 months they produced no fewer than 42 piglets.

Today, Lovaton Farm’s Gloucester Old Spot Pork, Dexter beef and Lleyn lamb is available by mail order, directly from the farm and in selected local shops in the Okehampton area.

Visitors are always welcome to the farm, and the farmhouse also offers good value Bed and Breakfast accommodation throughout the year.


 ”Lovaton Farm meat is in a class by itself. The attention paid to producing pork, beef and lamb is remarkable. It is a pleasure to purchase from people who obviously care so much about their sustainable produce. Lovaton Farm is a treasure”
