A former stud farm owner, Lou is a nutritional geek and loves horses. Being a hands-on kind of person, she developed her own natural feeds for her horses when she couldn’t find what was right for them in the shops. They were so good they formed the foundations of what would become the Pure Feed range. Lou is at the forefront of the business, ensuring that our range continues to serve all our customers’ needs whilst staying true to her values.
