Barnabus has finished his work here so today he went off for a holiday with another flock. He didn’t waste any time when he arrived! Definitely think he will be having fun! See MoreSee Less

This ram lamb has been very naughty today – he jumped out of his field & was caught chasing the retired ewes & this year’s ewe lambs. Don’t think he caught any of them but only time will tell (4 more for scanning!). This was when we caught him (and the girls), he looks as though butter wouldn’t melt.
Security has been improved – just hope we find him a new home soon!🐏

The lovely Barnabus has finished his work for us for this year. All his ladies are marked red or blue & (so far) no returns! He’s just fallen in love with one of the old retired ewes on the other side of the fence – just hope he doesn’t try anything silly!πŸπŸ‘πŸπŸ‘πŸπŸ‘πŸπŸ‘πŸπŸ‘πŸ See MoreSee Less

Really pleased as this lovely ram lamb (now called Jake) left us for a new forever home this week. He should be very happy – especially when he meets his new ladies in a couple of weeks time!

It’s finished! Getting the cover over the frame wasn’t easy (it’s really heavy!) but it’s now ready for the cows πŸ‚πŸ‚. It’s going to rain all day tomorrow so it will be interesting to see how it fares! See MoreSee Less

Did you get the idea from the Halfway House?

Perfect timing!

After last year’s horrible wet winter we decided that this year we would put up a temporary shelter so the cows would have somewhere to get out of the rain. It just needs its cover on now!πŸ‚β›ΊοΈ See MoreSee Less

Last call for lamb & Mutton – available to collect Sunday 20th!
We have just a couple of boxes of our local grass fed lamb or mutton left.
Lamb is priced at Β£7.50 a kilo based on the dead weight and is available by the 1/2 or whole. As a rough guide an average lamb will be about 20kg so a half lamb would cost Β£75.00 – weights do vary though!
Mutton is sold by the quarter mutton box (approx 7kg) with a half leg, half shoulder, some loin chops and cutlets and either boneless leg steak or boned and rolled breast. (or optionally you can have any or all of it minced or cubed – great for curries and tagines). Just Β£40.00 per box.
PM to order or for more details!

Lamb, Hogget, Mutton & Pork!! – If you love local, low food miles, free range, grass fed meat we are now taking orders!

This year our free range Oxford, Sandy and Black pork boxes will be available on the weekend of 12th September. Each box contains a quarter pig & includes roasting joints,pork chops, pork leg steaks, pork fillet, pork belly, spare ribs, our renowned pork sausages and chipolatas plus smoked and unsmoked back and streaky bacon (the bacon takes two weeks to cure so will be available a fortnight after the main box).
All cuts are vac packed and labelled ready for use or freezing. These boxes have a minimum weight of 12kg and are priced at just Β£80.00 per box!

Our first batch of home reared, grass fed Jacob Lamb will be available on 19th/20th September. When you order lamb we will send you a cutting list so you can select exactly which cuts you would like. You can choose either a whole or half lamb priced at Β£7.50 a kilo based on the dead weight. As a rough guide an average lamb will be about 20kg so a half lamb would cost Β£75.00 – weights do vary though so if you particularly want a large or small lamb please let us know when ordering.
As well as our traditional Jacob Lamb this year we also have one half of hogget available (a hogget is aged between one and two years, a bit larger than lamb and with a more developed flavour which many think is superior to lamb). Also Β£7.50 a kilo you can also choose your cuts from a cutting list.
Again, everything is in user friendly pack sizes, vac packed and labelled.

Mutton will be available on the weekend of 25th September – these are sold by the quarter mutton box (approx 7kg) containing a half leg, half shoulder, some loin chops and cutlets and either boneless leg steak or boned and rolled breast. (or optionally you can have any or all of it minced or cubed – great for curries and tagines). Just Β£40.00 per box.

Please just PM if you would like to order!
