It is a 300 acre dairy, beef and sheep livestock farm. The farm was one of the last in the area to be built in 1874 and still has many of the original features.
The Sheerin family are the fourth family to farm at Knotts, being there the longest of any.
Jack Sheerin was the first generation of the Sheerin family originating from a family farm in County Mayo, Ireland, where the farm still
and is farmed by the Sheerin family to this day. He became a tenant farmer at Knotts in January 1951, buying the farm in 1960.
Next the farm was worked by brothers Jim and John, and it is now being farmed by the third generation, Jim’s son Andrew. A noticeable feature of the farm are the field boundaries these are nearly all dry stone walls which add to the beauty of the area.
