Earlier this summer, in preparation for our new Portman Farms website, we all got up at the crack of dawn (much to the dismay of our marketing team) to photograph the sunrise over Burtley Farm. Here you can see our Hereford cows intrigued by the camera, with the early morning…
Our Farm Managers
The farms wouldn’t be the successful businesses they are today without the talent and expertise of our farm managers, Ed Jones and Mike Swerling. Each heading up a team of three, Mike and Ed deal with everything to do with the running of the farms
Farm Manager - Burtley
The management of the farm is in the hands of a young but hugely competent team. Mike Swerling was raised on a local farm, and runs Burtley with the help of James Price – a local lad who earned his spurs on a cattle farm in Brecon.
Farm Manager - Wilmaston
The farm is managed by Ed Jones who took on the position in 2014, Ed had previously been the assistant manager at the farm in Burtley, and has been heavily involved in farming throughout his life. Ed’s team which include Nick and Morgan provide a wealth of experience and expertise in what is a thriving enterprise.
An unlikely sidekick and the newest addition to the family at Wilmaston is Rosie, the sausage dog!
