The Horsfall family have been horse men and farmers way back as far as anyone can remember there have always been cows, sheep, chickens, pigs, goats and a horse or two around Clough House.
Mr Maurice Horsfall and his wife Irene, unfortunately no longer with us, set up the farm in 1969 and it is now run by their son Kevin, his wife Alma and Oliver their son.
Alma has been with horses all her life, falling in love with the ponies on the Pleasure Beach at the age of 2 and demanding to see them every day, she has never grown out of the ‘pony girl’ phase even after riding for over 50 years, is totally absorbed with the horse and sees no hope of a cure.
Since meeting Kevin in 1992 and marrying him a year later she has worked with him and together they have found a way of remaining in farming by diversifying. They still keep beef, cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, geese, turkeys, chickens, collies, and whippets.
The farm extends to over 130 acres and now houses more than 25 horses, liveries and breeding stock of the Touchstone Stud, Irish Draught Horses pure and part bred.
