Beef Shorthorns are the fastest growing native breed in the United Kingdom. Their fertility, longevity and temperament lend themselves to an attractive breed producing high quality, marbled beef.

Closely monitored by the Beef Shorthorn Cattle Society, Beef Shorthorn farmers can feel confident in the quality of the animal they are getting from pedigree registered breeders.

About us

Gerald Turton manages the farm along with the support of his family and Scottish Stocks Man, George McCulloch and his wife Maureen. Who look after the day to day management and care of the stock.

The farm estate covers over 2000 acres of land, with the stock covering a large majority of that having natural grazing land and shed stock.
