Our Farmer & Founder
Gloucestershire born and bred but not the son of a farmer, he is one of the few people to have followed his childhood dream and became a farmer. Richard farmed one of the largest dairy goat herds in the country from 2000 to 2018. Richard expanded the business over the years by adding in arable farming, contract and share farming as well as taking on tenancies. Richard believes strongly, that traditional farming methods have a huge role to play in feeding our ever growing population in a healthy and sustainable way.
Having grown up in rural Monmouthshire, Tara has always been at one with nature. Tara trained at Ballymaloe Cookery School aged 19, before working as a private PA in London. Despite her high profile job she moved back to Monmouthshire in search of something more - sustainable and holistic living. Turns out farming is a better way of life.
