Farm Gate Vets was formed in 2011 by merging the farm divisions of Bay Vets in Lancaster with Highgate Vets in Kendal. In 2015, the practice was joined by Sedbergh vets, creating the practice as it stands today. For the past 11 years we have served the farmers of Lancashire and South Cumbria, following a forward thinking, proactive approach, grounded in traditional values. Although we have a farm animal focus, Sedbergh also has a small animal branch allowing us to both care for the small animals in the area but also the farm dogs and pets across the practice area.
The team consists of 13 vets, the majority of which are doing solely farm animal, with 4 doing mixed practice to cover the small animal side.
We are an independent practice and operate from 3 branches – Lancaster Auction, The Rural Auction Centre M6,J36 and Sedbergh, with a collection point at Tynedale Farm Services at Greenodd.
Aims and Mission
By providing a farmer focused approach to proactive veterinary medicine, our aim is to develop people in veterinary medicine and agriculture, thus improving animal health, welfare and productivity.
