Clayton Sargood was born and bred into the cattle industry, as was his wife Jackie. He’s been breeding and growing organic cattle all his life. Clayton and Jackie live on their main property, Tulloch Brae. Their two sons, Jake and Harry, are capable riders and help out with operations. The push towards organic production came about when Clayton’s father, Bob Sargood, became seriously ill from the chemicals used to spray cattle. The Sargoods gained organic certification in 1995 and are known as pioneers in this growing industry. All of them agree: it’s the best thing they ever did for their business and for their family.
