A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
The family came to Brightleigh Farm, Outwood in 1959 when Jim Brunton started a dairy herd with 8 Ayrshire cows brought down from Ayrshire, Scotland. He built the herd up to 100 cows, changing breed to Friesians in the early 70’s. This continued until the poor milk price forced us to sell the dairy herd and cease milk production in 1999.
The beef suckler herd was then established with Hereford cross Friesian heifers born from dairy cows. Today the herd is made up of our 100% grass-fed Hereford and Angus cattle. Click here to read more about how we farm.
