Trewint Farm in Cornwall is renowned throughout the world for its prize winning herd of pedigree South Devon cattle. Stuart Rowe purchased Trewint just after the war. It is now owned and managed by Stuart's son Peter with assistance from his own son, Ashley.

The South Devon herd is featured throughout affording a unique look at this traditional breed.
