Chris was brought up on a dairy farm in Somerset and works as an agricultural consultant in his own practise Waterfield & White Ltd specialising in financial and technical advice to dairy and mixed farms and estates in Hampshire.
Following the difficult years in the dairy industry from 1999-2006 Chris set up a milk brokerage company called Capital Milk Ltd. This offered a premium price and a unique fairer type of milk contract based upon a ‘basket of prices’ that tracked the UK market price.
Nicky runs a family business buying group Confex Ltd which sells confectionery and drinks to the wholesale trade. Nicky’s love is riding horses.
Chris started his own livestock enterprise and in 2011 established the Frogmore herd of Limousins with the purchase of two Limousin heifers from Roscrea.
