Paul Winterton started as a production manager at Langage Farm, near Plymouth , and has been managing director for more than nine years. He will leave the business at the end of August 2021 to become chief executive of new business Rare & Pasture, an organic farm and meat production company, also near Plymouth. During Mr Winterton’s tenure Langage Farm grew to become one of the best known, and indeed loved, dairy brands in the UK. Constantly innovating new products, the company extended its factory at Smitherleigh, on the outskirts of Plymouth, in 2020. Langage Farm's factory at Smithaleigh, on the edge of Plymouth It also grew its workforce as products such as its high-end yogurts were a hit for Aldi, and Marks and Spencer was bowled over by its flavoured thick cream, including the popular strawberry variety. Which prompted Mr Winterton to say: “At least I created strawberry clotted cream which was a UK first, not a bad legacy.” He said the decision to leave Langage Farm after so long was a difficult one, but he leaves the business in good hands and couldn’t resist the challenge at Rare & Pasture, which had headhunted him. “Langage Farm is still strong, and I will make sure everything is ship-shape here before I move on. I had no intention of leaving the business,” he added. “But these things present themselves and it was an opportunity to progress my career. I’m grateful for the past 21 years, but this is a new opportunity, new horizons.” Mr Winterton said Langage Farm will continue to prosper under new MD Ben Harvey, and said: “I’m sure it will continue to go from strength to strength. We took the business to a different level, with the supermarkets and even to Australia and Japan. “And it was all down to the people at Langage Farm. Not just the managerial team, but the people who come in at 5am and do their jobs well. A business is only as good as the people it employs.” Mr Winteron said he is looking forward to starting at Rare & Pasture, based at Ugborough, near Ivybridge, which is an ambitious enterprise. “We are hoping to create jobs and grow the business,” he said.
