We have always worked in deer parks and with the publication of my book Gardens of Earthly Delight - the History of Deer Parks in 2011, the provision of advice has increased.

A particular aspect of this has been our involvement in breeding white red deer and the supply of these animals to new deer parks in collaboration with Brett Graham the head chef and proprietor of the Ledbury restaurant in Notting Hill, London. With Brett we have established unique white red deer herds at Aynhoe Park and for the Duke of Buccleuch at Boughton, both in Northamptonshire.

Our experience with captive red and fallow deer over many decades makes us particularly well qualified to assist in the provision of advice to park owners and managers and we have worked with most of the historic English deer parks including the provision of red deer from Balmoral for the re-establishment of the red deer herd at Windsor. We have also worked extensively in the new deer park at Gunton in Norfolk and in the establishment of several new deer parks for Anton Bilton including those at Adderbury and Tyringham.
