You can find us in the heart of North Norfolk, a conservation area just North of the river Bure, consequentially we have many water meadows, this is where we run our suckler herds.
Twyford Simmentals was started in 1982 at Twyford in Norfolk, where Tony lived for 26 years. He went to the Forstal dispersal sale in Kent and bought Forstal Lombard, Lena and Forstal Linda. He ran them with his suckler cows untill 1984. He then on marrying Phillida moved the suckler cows to Beck Farm and increased the herd to about a hundred Blue/Grey and x-bred cows.
We increased the pure bred Simmentals over the years, buying from dispersal sales all over England and Scotland, including buying some great fleshy cows from the late John Marshall of the Solway herd in Scotland. In 1988 Tony bought Brinkton Sovreign from Perth Bull sale, where he was overall Champion. This was the start of our success…
