Alistair is developing a herd of Aberdeen Angus suckler cows to provide beef for the farm shop which his wife Lucy runs.
The aim is to rear beef that is fed on grass and grass products grown slowly on the farm.
The Aberdeen Angus cattle can be seen in the parkland meadows and riverside pastures during the summer months.
Much of the land at Beningbrough is situated alongside the river Ouse and has always been subject to flooding. The flooding leaves silt deposits on this land known as Ings land, which creates, deep alluvial mineral rich soils well known as excellent cattle fattening pastures.
Together with the choice of Aberdeen Angus breed, which is acknowledged to be the best tasting beef available, we believe we have a superb combination of a natural, grass based, first quality breed of cattle.
