Farming with passion, provenance and pride, we live through our livestock! Grazing the best grass growing country on earth, passion drives us.
Tori and Ben have been together for 12 years and married in 2010. The Stanleys have been farming since 1807 and Ben's passion is certainly in the blood. The farm now comprises Park Farm at Melbourne and Woodhouse Farm at Diseworth; the livestock roam majestically across the old grass meadows of the Melbourne Estate and Langley Priory Estate, both steeped in history.
Tori and Ben farm their herd of Longhorn cattle and flocks of Jacob, Portland and Texel sheep. Longhorns are renowned for their docile, care-free attitude, making them a pleasure to handle and look after. The sheep flocks are made up of Tori’s Jacobs, with whom she has not been shy of a championship or two in the show ring, a Flock of Portlands, located outside Melbourne Hall and cared for on behalf of Lady Ralph Kerr..
