Robert Bennett Williams

Owner of Maydencroft Farm

Robert was born and brought up in rural Suffolk. His father was an animal feed merchant and Robert spent most of his professional life in flour and animal feed milling. It is from that background that he acquired a deep rooted love of the countryside and it's animals. His passion for all rural matters has been passed on to the next generation and it comes as no surprise therefore that Tom Williams decided to create the successful business that Maydencroft Limited is today.

The Maydencroft herd of Longhorns, which is still owned by Robert and Frances Williams,was started in 1983.Almost from its foundation the animals have been used in a conservation role and elsewhere on this website you can gather further information about our farming activities. Having been Millennium President of The Longhorn Cattle Society one can understand why Robert still maintains a keen and active interest in all herd activities.
