ABOUT US

Who we are 

We are a small family run farm working in harmony with nature. We are passionate about the environment and sustainability. We farm with the animals in mind and our meat is of the highest ethical standards.

Tim and Juliet moved to Hampton Gay in 2016 having spent many years living in London. They both come from a long line of farmers and gardeners. It was always a dream for both of them to run their own farm but it was Tim’s choice to focus on building an organic suckler herd of Old English Longhorn cattle.

How we farm

As consumers what we buy directly affects the health of the world around us and the health of our immediate family. We are a conservation driven farm. This means we farm in harmony with nature. We believe it is best to work with nature instead of against it.

Our aim is to regenerate the land by encouraging soil health and biodiversity; this involves reducing soil disturbance, encouraging a diverse range of living plants and planning our grazing so the land has plenty of time to rest. We don't use any pesticides, herbicides or fertilisers on the farm, and so we are certified organic. 

We want what is best for our animals. Our pigs are fed the highest quality, organic feed and live outdoors, foraging, rooting and wallowing to their hearts' content. Our cows are Pasture for Life certified, this means that our meat is 100% pasture-fed.
