In 2002 they relocated to Norfolk so that Philip could work in partnership with his parents, Robert and Sandra, running the new free range egg enterprise. Laura and Philip were married in 2003 and have two daughters. Their eldest daughter, Beth, has started her own Hereford herd, with the prefix “Beckhall”, named after her Pa’s home in Lincolnshire. Their youngest daughter, Grace, has a small flock of sheep.
About the herd
In the Spring of 2007 two Traditional Hereford cows with calves at foot were purchased to graze some of the grass surrounding the free range chicken shed. Later in the year Philip and Laura visited AG Wright and Sons where four Badlingham females were purchased, the foundation of the herd as it now stands.
In 2008 Philip and Laura’s interest in Hereford cattle grew and they decided to sell the two Traditional cows and calves and expand the Horned Herd. In 2012 a number of polled females were purchased to run alongside the horned females. The Herd now consists of approximately 30 horned and 15 polled breeding females.
