Paul & Kirsty Westaway grew up 20 miles apart in Somerset, met in the early nineties and have been together ever since! Paul grew up on a cattle farm, and left school at 16 to work for a butcher's shop in Shaftesbury before embarking on a career in cattle farming. He has worked on some of the best beef farms in the UK, Europe and Canada. Kirsty is the brains of the team! After attending Millfield School in Somerset, she graduated in biochemistry at Oxford University, then worked in the grain industry before meeting Paul. Paul and Kirsty have been married for almost 15 years and have two daughters Ellie (13) and Georgie (9).
In addition, they also have menagerie of pets: Spotty Dog, several farm cats, Gloucester Old Spot pigs, chickens, and a horse.
 
In 2006, Paul and Kirsty applied for and were offered a farm business tenancy with Gloucestershire County Council. After a rigorous selection process, they took on Gamage Hall Farm "with a wheelbarrow, an overdraft, and eight cows," says Paul. Since then, they have now expanded the farm from 103 to 170 acres and it keeps over 200 head of cattle. They still have the wheelbarrow and the overdraft!
 
Paul and Kirsty are passionate about great beef and love the magical experience that comes from pairing the best beef in the world with wines that really match and enhance this wonderful British product. Their Aberdeen Angus beef has been featured on TV in “Jimmy's Food Factory” and “Matt and Allegra's Big Farm” and on Radio 4's “Farming Today” programme.
