Our animals are raised on a diet of grasses, clover, organic vegetables and feed. A diet proven by many studies to improve the quality of meat, both in terms of flavour and make up, bringing with it associated health benefits. We operate organic farming practices throughout the farm and are working towards organic accreditation as formal evidence of the work we are already doing.
As we avoid all herbicides and pesticides, the grass that feeds our animals is completely natural, ensuring the rare breed meat from our animals is free from dangerous and harmful chemicals. In addition, we avoid antibiotics unless absolutely essential, instead choosing to naturally build up our livestock’s immune systems through essential salt licks and, when required, traditional non-toxic vaccinations.
We produce Devon Ruby Red grass-fed beef, rare breed pork and rare breed lamb and hogget. By offering both fresh and frozen meat boxes, we are able to offer our customers the grass-fed, free-range meat they need, in a way that works for them.
We treat each and every animal with the care and respect they deserve and this is true in all aspects of their lives. Once our animals reach natural maturity, everything remains local. Our abattoir is located just five miles away – ensuring no stress is put on them. Each animal is hand stunned meaning no pain is felt and the process is completed extremely quickly in exceptionally humane and hygienic conditions.
The close proximity to the local abattoir ensures our rare breed meat is extremely fresh and the journey from field to plate has a minimal carbon footprint.
