Our Wildlife

Its not our wildlife  

There are broadly two schools of thought on farms and wildlife, land sparing and land sharing.  Land sparing is about intensifying food production on one area, and then sparing land just for wildlife some where else.  That could be on the farm, or in another country.

Land sharing is having farming and a broad range of wildlife both thriving right on the same patch.  I am a fan of the sharing approach, as actually I believe the world doesn't  have the time or space for the other approach.  Land sharing is not a fixed recipie, this is a continuum  from very wildlife focused farming like rewinding and grazing nature reserves all the way through to commercially focused organic farming.

The Rumming family have been farming cattle on the banks of the Thames at Waterhay near Cirencester, and at Lydiard near Swindon for over 60 years.  We provide the highest possible animal welfare which together with the grass fed diet produce superior beef.


Our beef is hung on the bone for 3-4 weeks to give the best flavour and texture, and then expertly butchered and packed in our own on farm butchery.  You can collect the beef fresh or frozen directly from the farms.
