Peter and Cathy Hurman started farming Red Deer 12 years ago. Milking British Fresian cows had been the previous business on the farm. However, after 30 years of milking, the buildings were wearing out, as was Peter! A change was called for.

After many years of watching and filming Deer and looking for their antlers, Peter had a keen interest in them. A visit to a local Deer Farm was enough to convince Peter and Cathy this was the enterprise for them.

Originally the plan was to market the Venison through the South West Deer Group which sold to a well known supermarket. The members were left in the lurch when the supermarket started sourcing Venison from abroad. So much for loyalty and reduced food miles...

With the advent of Farmers' Markets, Peter and Cathy decided to start selling their Venison through this outlet. A mobile catering vehicle was purchased. Stock has also been sold to new entrants into Deer Farming.
