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 £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 £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 £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 £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 £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 £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 £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.

And the farming year starts again! We don’t keep a bull as we don’t really have the space or handling for one so we have our cattle AI’d (artificially inseminated). The first step in the process happened yesterday in all the wind & rain when the vet came & inserted PRIDs. These will help synchronise ovulation so that we know when to inseminate🐂🐂 See MoreSee Less

We are now taking orders for our home reared, grass fed, Jacob mutton which will be available mid September!
At just £40 for a quarter box of approximately 7kg weight it’s terrific value. Each pack has a half leg joint (knuckle or fillet), half a shoulder joint (knuckle or blade), some loin chops and cutlets, and either boneless leg steaks or boned and roiled breast (alternatively any, or all, of this could be minced or cubed if preferred). It will all be vacuum packed & labelled ready for your freezer.
Mutton is a superb meat, darker & fuller flavoured than lamb, it’s wonderful for slow cooking in stews, curries & tagines -roast mutton is pretty amazing too! Perfect for Autumn 🍂
Please message if you would like to order 🙂

We went & picked up a new addition to our herd yesterday. He was supposed to go into quarantine for a week or so but he had different ideas! Luckily he comes from a very high health status herd so he shouldn’t have brought anything nasty with him!🐂 See MoreSee Less

He looks a magnificent animal he wanted to get to know what he thought of his mates sooner that’s all !!

This handsome ram lamb left us today to go to his new home where he has an appointment with some lovely ewes. It’s so nice when you can sell the boys on – hopefully we’ll see his babies at some of the agricultural shows next year!💕🐏🐏💕 See MoreSee Less

Oh dear, we really need some rain! There’s been no significant rain for over 2 weeks, that wasn’t very much and it doesn’t look as though there’s any coming our way anytime soon either! Our ponds must be at least 2ft down on their usual levels, the grass is brown and there’s not a lot out there for the animals to eat so we’ve had to start feeding hay!☀️☀️☀️ See MoreSee Less

We put our wildlife camera up in our patch of woodland & look what turned up – this lovely buck Roe deer. The Roe deer is one of the truly native British breeds. This one seems to have damaged one of his antlers as it seems to be growing backwards rather than up! See MoreSee Less
