While Manor Farm at Wotton is a specialist producer of grass-fed Belted Galloway beef today, historically the Surrey Hills farm was a key supplier of milk and other produce for the famed Evelyn family at the historic Wotton House estate.

The Matthews family has farmed this traditional mixed farm, near Dorking, for three generations, and they are champions of regenerative farming with their prized Belted Galloway suckler herd grass fed and outdoor reared.

Grass-fed beef in Surrey

Their Belties can be seen roaming the Surrey countryside, undertaking conservation grazing on local pasture and herb-rich chalk downland. They produce quality grass-fed beef that is sold direct from the farm to individuals, butchers, pubs and restaurants.

The instantly recognisable Belted Galloway (nicknamed 'Belties' or 'Oreo Cows' by some due to its distinctive markings) are a hardy breed which originate from the exposed uplands of Galloway in south west Scotland.

They are perfect for grazing natural pastures, while producing nutritionally rich milk for their calves and later converting into well marbled and flavoursome Pasture for Life beef.

Manor Farm also rotates arable crops including oil seed rape for vegetable oil, winter wheat for bread and biscuit flours and maize which is mainly grown as a cash crop. Their livestock helps to regenerate soil biodiversity on the farm.

A farming family 

The Matthews family originally moved to Manor Farm from a dairy farm in Cowden, Kent in 1935 and is currently run by Laurence and Paula Matthews.

A pillar of the Surrey farming community, Laurence has been representing Surrey members of the National Farmers Union (NFU) on the South East Region, Combinable Crops Board since 2003 and was the board's first chairman. He has also been the Surrey County Delegate for the NFU Council since 2011.

Locally, Laurence is also on the council of the Surrey County Agricultural Society and has been a steward since 1978. He helps the Society to run the Surrey County Show and the Surrey County Ploughing Match.

Paula trained in countryside recreation, habitat management such as heathland, chalk downland and woodland, tree planting and hedge laying; working as a countryside ranger and warden for local authority and the National Trust.

Farming and conservation 

Laurence and Paula draw together a breadth of experience and skills in farming and countryside conservation as a core to integrated farm management.

Manor Farm’s grass-fed beef is dry-aged, hanging on the bone for 30 days and provides well marbled, quality beef packed with nutrients and flavour.
