The Family                                     

Horlands Farm has been farmed by our family since 1866 with the Russell family being the current generation. Run as R.J. & E.F.B. Russell & Son the business continues based on the traditional methodologies of hard work combined with experience and knowledge of old and new farming techniques and practises.    


Richard Russell

Born and bred on the farm Richard has a lifetime's experience in all aspects of farming.  Well known by the local farming community Richard has previously been Chairman of the local NFU Branch.  His particular expertise includes top fruit growing and livestock farming.




Elizabeth Russell

Originally born and raised in Hildenborough, Elizabeth met Richard whilst on a Young Farmers trip to the Norfolk Broads.  Since marrying Richard and bringing up a family she has played an active part in the running of the farm helping with logistics, and her cakes are second to none!  


Tristan Russell

Raised on the farm he has always had an interest in farming.  Since graduating from Hadlow Agricultural College he has returned to the farm.  His particular interest is livestock.



Claudine Russell

Since marrying Tristan in 2004 she has become an integral part of the farm.  Her day job with the Environment Agency is of great use to the farm and her previous experience as quarry manger at Brett Aggregates brings a new perspective to farming life.  Her special interest is anything horse related.


Jess Russell

Probably the most important member for the workforce. Jess works tirelessly in everything she does.  Her particular expertise is working with livestock. Although she does also like the odd pear!


The Telford Team

Last but by no means least, these members of the family play an important part in the farm with James' expertise in graphic design and Emma's teaching skills. Their boundless energy provides great assistance to the other farm members.
