Farming and Our Family

 

George Paull was a first generation tenant dairy farmer and cattle dealer in the 1940s, and bought Overton Farm (in Babcary, Somerset) in the early 1960s.  Ken and Mary purchased the neighbouring Olive Farm in the late 1960s. Now in its third generation, Dave and Rosie run the combined farms as one unit, with 200 hundred cows, plus young stock.  The next (and 4th) generation are waiting in the wings ...
