EDWARD HALL

Paley Farm's Farm Manager. Edward is passionate about farming and is a firm believer that the animals on the Farm must be bred to produce the highest quality meat from a grass based system. He has implemented a rotational grazing system and sown acres of herbal leys, which maximises the potential of the pasture in a sustainable way.

LUKE CURTIS

Luke looks after Paley Farm's flock of sheep among other responsibilities. He loves the continuous process of improving the quality and traits of the flock by looking closely at the genetics. He carefully monitors the Ewe Lambs, with only the best female replacements run on to enter the flocks and we are seeing great improvements year on year.

PETER SPEAIGHT

Peter is a second-generation Butcher, who owned and ran the famous Peter Speaight Butchers in Tunbridge Wells and has a very strong reputation. Being a Craft Butcher he knows how every ­single muscle on an animal works and how best to recover and prepare it for sale. He can advise about various cuts, their different cooking ­methods, what to serve with them and possibly which wine best accompanies them.

He brings passion and knowledge that cannot be rivalled. Plus having been a High Street Butcher, he loves to chat with the customers.
