Farming runs in Janet Sheard’s veins – she is the third generation of the family to work the rich and bountiful pastures at Low Common Farm, Almondbury, in Kirklees.
The farm stands in the shadow of the famous Victoria Tower on nearby Castle Hill, completed in 1899 to commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria to Huddersfield.
Janet’s grandfather Arthur Pickles was well known across Calderdale, having initially farmed at Blackstone Edge, before moving to Low Common Farm in search of warmer climes!
The farm was then run by her late parents Kenneth and Ivy Sheard and Janet has herself had a 50-year connection with the family holding, though she managed a dairy herd for a farmer in the village for many years, before taking over in her own right at Low Common.
So began the journey to establish her own pedigree Limousin herd and agricultural agency, supplying top quality cattle, cattle feeds, fertilisers and seeds to her appreciative farmer customers. The rest, as they say, is history!
On a personal note, when time permits, Janet enjoys attending choir and orchestral concerts. She is also a committee member of Stocksmoor Women’s Institute.
