About us 

Hello, we are a family-run business situated at Porthlow & Trewince Farm, a beautiful part of the Isles of Scilly.  Our family has been living on the farm for generations, and we have a deep connection with the land and sea. 


Altamria was built in the 1900's at the height of flower farming and now instead of flowers you will find a small herd of friendly cattle. 


Come explore the beauty of the Islands with us!
