Although the physical appearance of the countryside has changed little since those bloody days thankfully, the most aggressive thing you're likely to come across today in the Northumbrian uplands are a pair of squabbling Black Grouse! A species of native grouse making a dramatic comeback in Britain, thanks in no small part to the dedicated environmental schemes undertaken by farmers and landowners in the region.
It is on this history soaked high ground that Monkridge Hill Farm is situated, and where the herd of Wagyu, Aberdeen Angus cross cows and Blackface sheep graze upon over one hundred species of native grasses, clovers, herbs, and heathers, extensively and naturally.....
While the Wagyu are undoubtedly a recent addition to these hills, they seem to enjoy the open spaces as much as their more traditional neighbors!
