About Us

Homestead Farm Supplies is a family run business supplying a wide range of animal care and farming products plus a selection of home crafts supplies.

When we first started keeping animals we quickly discovered that it was very difficult to get hold of all the products and equipment we needed. We had to track them down from many different suppliers and even send off half way round the world for some items.

We set out to assemble a really good choice of the best animal care products available, and if we couldn't find them to have them specially made. We talked to friends who keep sheep, goats, alpacas, llamas, poultry, cattle, pigs, horses and ponies to find out their favourite products. We then added a selection of useful and beautiful household items and a good range of home cheese and yoghurt making supplies.

It is that carefully chosen range that you see on Homestead Farm Supplies today. Enjoy shopping with Homestead and please feel free to ring or email us if you don't see what you are looking for.

Best wishes,

Matthew and Diane Tims
