Mike and Trish Gray have lived in Lower Chicksgrove since 1978 and since 1996 they have been farming in Lower Chicksgrove at Nut Tree Cottage SP3 6NB. They farm with their son, Jeremy.

They started with Shetland sheep and added an in calf Dexter cow with a calf at foot.

Things have progressed since then, adding Aberdeen-Angus cattle.

Now the holding carries two pedigree flocks of Shetland sheep and a pedigree herd of Aberdeen-Angus cattle.
