About Us




The Turville Herd is located in Creslow, a unique and historic parish nestling in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire.

Cattle have been grazed here since the 13th Century and were fattened for Henry VIII ‘s table at Hampton Court.

1779 Prize Winning Hereford

It was later farmed by John Westcar, who won the first Royal Smithfield Show in 1799 with his prize winning Hereford (right).

The Turville Herd of pedigree Limousins was established in 1991 by Brian & Linda Lear. We introduced Black Limousins in 2008 and the herd now consists of around 300 Red and Black Limousin cows.

The Herd is treated commercially with emphasis on ease of calving, docility and muscle depth which is why we introduced Black Limousins giving us the added benefit of polled genetics.
