For healthy eating, for food free from chemical residues, for care in the environment, the best taste and animal welfare buy your meat straight from our Devon farm.
Neither our beef or lamb are given GMO feeds, they receive no hormones, no routine antibiotics, and their feed/fields are never treated with chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Better for you, the farm animals, our soils, rivers and wildlife.
Our traditional, grass fed, low intensity farming of a native, pedigree flock is, without doubt, the best way forward for local agriculture, If you consider yourself both conscientious and a lover of flavour and quality then our healthier and tastier meats are for you.
Grass feed over grain feed, there is no comparison!
