In 2020 we (Hannah and Mark) used our savings to buy the herd from the farm where we previously worked. Having worked with the herd for two years already, we had grown quite attached to them. By amazing luck, we found a landowner who was keen to transform her land from intensive monoculture grassland, into a biodiverse, species-rich, ecologically thriving place.
Introducing our rare breed Shetlands and other native crossbreed herd to the land and our holistic planned grazing system (mob grazing) was the perfect match and start of this regeneration.
With just a small herd (we started with 26 head) and being very passionate about providing nutrient dense food for the local community, we decided that selling directly to our customers was the way to go. This means we do everything from the daily farm jobs, right up to delivering the beef to your doorsteps! Being new entrant farmers, we are by no means experts at any stage of the process, but we are having lots of fun learning on the way.
