A unique opportunity to work with Longhorn cattle has become available at a member's farm near Oxford. Tim Thompson of Manor Farm, Hampton Gay, Oxford has been in touch with the Society. Tim says,
'We have now got to a point where we have started to build the herd numbers to a reasonable level. Our method of farming is low input, although the sales and other marketing do take time. We are Organic and 100% grass fed and the stock stay out all year. I'm looking for a herdsman young or old, that would like to help and take a share of what we produce. We direct sell all our meat either from the farm gate or into Oxford. There is a real opportunity for someone with the knowledge but no capital to become involved with a business that has already got off the ground. I'd love to give this opportunity to someone young and energetic with an entrepreneurial streak in them! We don't have accommodation on farm, but hopefully could find somewhere to rent locally.'
