Meet the Team
Farmers and graziers since 1807, farming is in the Stanley blood and Ben is no exception. Farming is his true passion, particularly his cattle. Not one thing is missed and they always come first, come hell or high water! Ben spends every day, including the 8th day, running the farming livestock and arable enterprises. Ben loves attending the markets when he gets the chance and his energy is contagious with our customers! Busy Boy!
Having left a career in marketing at BMW to return home and steer the retail side of the ship, Tori’s passion is in the livestock and she takes no greater pleasure than seeing it come through from field to fork knowing every aspect has been done with the greatest ability. Tori spends her day doing all that needs to be done, from admin to marketing, packing meat to calving cows. Her greatest challenge yet will be the arrival of baby Stanley in May - watch this space for an addition to meet the team.
The Godfather! What Geoff doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing!
His patient expertise see Tori and Ben through all challenges on the farm... and there are plenty. Famous for just shaking his head
and fixing whatever is broke all in exchange for a cup of tea and
a hob nob.
Apprenticeship!!! this girls running rings round it! Kate has been with us now for 8 years and grows from strength to strength. We love her and why woudn't you!
Molly, Tilly, Red and Moppet keep all in order at Park Farm. Molly, aged 13, is certainly the matriarch of the pack and suffers from selective hearing (unless Ben is speaking!). Tilly, who answers to six different names, is renowned for being just ‘perfect’. Red, some 35kg, is certainly the largest but despite his beautiful large head his brain is surprisingly smaller than even the terriers. Moppet is the youngest, boldest and bossiest of the pack.
This little stockman has now built himself his own Longhorn Herd with the prefix 'Herberts Herd' and his very own Texel Flock of sheep. Already picking up awards 'Berties 'Beena' (Blackbrook Zabrina) has taken several breed Championships this year and has just secured Bertie the Paul Luckett Memorial Trophy as the best New comer to the Longhorn Cattle Society ... aged 2 and half months! Bertie is alos the proud owner of an Etterick Ram quickly named by Bertie as 'My Ettrick'
