The Darbyshires have been farming our 16th century farm since the 1800s.
I am the fifth generation and started rearing pheasants and partridge under broodies collected from around the farm back in the seventies when in my early teens. These were released on the farm for my friends' shooting enjoyment.
A small incubator was soon acquired and extra eggs bought in. The following year there were more incubators, more eggs and a lot more shooting fun.
The rest as they say is history!
