A wonderful morning spent with Nicola and David Chapman at Carr Farm. Tucked away on the marshes of the River Waveney at Burgh St Peter, South Norfolk they have a herd of Belted Galloway which are the subject of today’s sketch. It was wonderful to hear Nicola talk with such passion about the breed she loves and why they rear these belties. Unlike many of the more commercial breeds Belted Galloway mature much more slowly on a bio diverse grazing marsh with no concentrate producing a fine grained beef of high quality and taste.
Apart from the Belted Galloway herd they also rear Norfolk Geese for the Christmas market and I shall be drawing these at a later date.
