Shepton Smallholders Club

Do you have a few chickens, a small flock of sheep, pigs, goats or maybe even a few alpacas?

Whatever animals you have on your small holding, Shepton Smallholders Club is a good way to learn more about keeping your animals happy and healthy. Our Smallholders Club is open to all Somerset (& beyond) smallholders who are keen to learn more about their animals. It will be exclusively for people with a small number of animals across the range of farm species.

We can offer support, advice and technical information relevant to smallholders.

We have a team of experienced vets, many of whom are smallholders themselves, who are happy to help you with any questions you may have.

Members of Shepton Smallholders have access to health planning advice, vaccination programmes, worm egg counts, medicines in reasonable volumes, telephone advice and discounted meetings.

  • Free Herd Health Calendar: Helping you keep up to date with vaccinations, worming and other routine treatments.
