The farms White Park cattle are reared outdoors all year. They spend their summer months on traditional grassland and are outwintered in the woodlands. The cattle are allowed to grow and mature slowly as nature intended. Concentrates are never used.
White Park cattle are a very old breed, believed to have been kept in Britain for more than 2000 years. They are listed as at risk by the Rare Breed Survival Trust, although their numbers have increased from only 60 in 1973 to around 950 breeding cows today.
