The History of Clifton Belted Galloways
Clifton Farm is situated in Dumfries and Galloway - a 200 acre hill farm with wonderful views of the Solway and the Lake District beyond.
There is more than adequate gorse for winter shelter, good permanent grazing and impressive craggy granite hills for youngstock and stirks to outwinter and thrive. We moved to Clifton Farm in 1998 when my husband, Alastair, retired from his Veterinary Practice in East Lothian.
The Clifton Belted Galloway Herd was established in 2002 when heifers and a bull were purchased from The Hon. Flora Stuart at Mochrum. Our friendship with Flora and her generosity resulted in her insisting we have an outstanding heifer, Mochrum Jadee which she hoped we would show. Mochrum Jadee won the Supreme Championship at RHS 2009. HM the Queen wished to see the Native Champions and Jadee and I had the privilege of meeting Her Majesty.
