We began the Park Gate herd of Red Poll cows back in 2006, grazing our pasture in the Essex village of Pleshey.

In recent years the cattle have been spending their summers on the ancient plains of nearby Hatfield Forest as part of a conservation project run by the National Trust.

This enables us to grow enough hay to feed over the winter, giving us the status of 100% grass fed beef. Just as nature intended.

We also keep a small number of rare breed pigs, Tamworths,Gloucester Old Spots and Saddlebacks, giving us delicious pork and sausages.

We are passionate about our animals and their individual welfare.

Farming on such a small scale enables us to responsibly rear meat with provenance, providing a quality product to local people.
