Ellie and her husband John were the ones that had the brainwave resulting in Norfolk Quail. Watching over the business since it started with just twenty quail in a stable, Ellie now is primarily in charge of business planning and strategy, marketing and PR and the accounts.

A farmer’s daughter, Ellie too has a great interest in conservation and the countryside. It’s a real team effort and as husband and wife, John and Ellie take great pride in being able to work together full time, being able to draw on each other’s strengths to build a business with strong family foundations.

Ellie is a qualified Project Manager having previously worked in a locally run organisation to develop health and safety qualifications and supporting the development and implementation of schemes to improve the safety of workers for the construction industry.

Also qualified in customer services, health and safety, first aid and HACCP, she also ensures that documentation and appraisals for staff training and development is maintained.When not on the phone to customers or doing the paperwork, Ellie can often be found riding her beloved ex racehorse, Jennings, cycling or pounding the lanes in a bid to beat her previous personal best.

And when not exploring the great outdoors, Ellie enjoys spending time watching her two children Guy and Grace playing sports, in particular rugby and cricket. Her other great passion is cooking, where Ellie has a reputation for ensuring that nobody ever goes hungry.

Family time is spent hacking the horses around the farm, inspecting Daddy’s crops and observing the plentiful wildlife and making sure the local rabbit and pigeon populations aren’t nibbling at them.
