I grew up on our mixed family farm in Worcestershire and after leaving University worked as an Ecologist for several environmental charities. Over the last 20 years I've built up the farming business alongside my day job and we will have 140 pedigree cows to the bull next year grazing over 1000 acres of extensive pasture. Our business, Phepson Angus sells pedigree bulls into grass fed systems across the UK
