We have been farming cattle for generations. Currently, we breed mainly Hereford and Angus, which are great beef producers. Our cattle are organic grass fed and slowly raised. They are all Red Tractor and Soil Association registered, so grain, hormone and antibiotic free too. At the moment, while the weather is so ghastly, the cattle winter over in the sheds, on organic straw and eating our own organic silage, cut in the summer months. Below are three generations from the same Hereford family. Iris, (the one with the horns) is the grandmother and matriarch of the whole herd. At the end of the autumn, it’s Iris who shouts to us that it’s time to come in for the winter. In the spring, it’ll be Iris again who will announce that the sweet grass is growing again – she is always the first one onto pasture, and the rest of the herd seem to know that they always have to wait for her to lead the way.
