When farming is more a passion that a job, Barastoc have the feeds and supplements to ensure your lifestyle animals get the nourishment they need every day.
The last 20 years has seen a growth in “life stylers”, people who run smallholdings or small farms as a hobby rather than as a commercial enterprise. The animals kept on such holdings include everything you will find in “Old MacDonald had a farm”, along with more exotic species such as Alpacas, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs.
