Hadn't heard of them before but just had a look and they seem Ok, they say all the right things. Personally if I was thinking of getting a tort from them then I would phone and speak with them first, it just gives you a feel to see if they make you feel comfortable

I wouldn't like to say whether they are good or bad. I wouldn't necessarily judge a breeder on how many species of tortoises they keep. Often it is more responsible to have less species in order to give the species they keep more space.

If you want to be sure you are purchasing UK bred healthy babies, please visit our list of UK breeders here:-

I'm new to the forum and have just noticed this thread, dispite the thread ibeing 6 months old i feel incline to comment as I acquired  my Herman from them some 6 years ago.

In my experience he was a pleasure to deal with, knew his stuff and could'nt have been more helpful, All the tortoises appeared very healthy and well kept despite being quite a large setup based on a farm in east sussex.

All the infomation he gave me back then is still relavant and accurate today despite a few changes in thinking over the past few years regarding tortoise husbandry.

I'd happily buy from him again based on my past experience.
