What our customers say

Testimonials

“The meat is excellent and a joy to cook.”

The meat tastes incredibly. I recommend it to everyone. I hope more people join Nature Way Farm so more farmers can give their animals the life they deserve.

Alexandra Guerreiro

...after years of using supermarkets and basically, doing what everybody does, I had forgotten how decent meat should taste and the fact that your products are easily distinguishable on taste alone. Was simply a revelation.

Robert Stroud

The variety of cuts we have received is really good although they may not have been our first choice. It's great to get cuts we wouldn't usually choose.

Sustainable and clean beef and lamb

Watch the video on why is our beef and lamb so special

  • sustainable – they eat zero grain, which uses lots of fertilizers and pesticides, plus fossil fuels to grow them
  • their meat is 4x more nutritious – you would need to eat 4 more portions for 1 from our cow to have the same amount of nutrients!
  • it’s a better value for money – despite it might seem more expensive per portion, you need to eat 4x less of our meat to get the nutrients you need

Join our farmers in reversing global warming

Watch this video to find out how much power farming has in causing or reversing climate change.

Farming causes more global warming (in fact, the most) than any other industry in the world.

Find out how conventional farming practices are heating up the planet.

And how few revolutionary farmers are stepping up to the challenge and are starting to produce food whilst reversing climate change.

Happy animals that look forward to seeing their farmer

Every day our cattle and sheep move to a fresh new pasture. They love it! Fresh grass that hasn’t been grazed for 30-180 days. No dung. Tasty diverse plants and herbs.

The animals love their farmer and look forward to seeing them every day. They rarely if ever experience fear.

Watch our video to see what our cattle think about being moved to fresh pasture every day

Weston, Hertfordshire

John Cherry

beef

Our deeply flavoured, 21-days dry-aged 100% grass fed beef comes from English Shorthorn cattle from John's farm in Weston. John Cherry is a pioneer and promoter of regenerative agriculture in the UK. His herd of 120 cattle is helping to restore ecosystem on his farm. If you visit Weston, you'll find his cattle somewhere in meadows and pastures surrounding the village. John also uses his herd in a traditional way to naturally control weeds on his arable land. His revolutionary approach to farm with Nature serves as a valuable example to many farmers who visit him to learn. John is working to spread regenerative agriculture within the wider farming community.

Hannah Thorogood

lamb
Hannah Thorogood

Our organic, 100% grass fed lamb come from Hannah's small farm in Lincolnshire. Hannah's native sheep grow slower than usual commercial breeds but the taste of their meat is uncomparable. The meat is tender with subtle flavours of grasses and clovers the sheep graze. The sheep are helping Hannah to restore her previously degraded land. She has made many a head scratched about her non-chemical natural farming methods. She has created a nature oasis amidst the conventional chemical-based farm fields. People visiting Hannah's farm are inspired by her approach of growing food with love and care according to Nature's principles.

Canterbury, Kent

Jeremy Beckman

pork

Our sweet and nutty pork is raised on an old organic vegetable and fruit farm. Here, Jeremy raises his pigs outdoors and manages them over the whole farm. His New Zealand slow-growing breed Kunekune are short and stocky pigs that don't root as much as traditional pigs. Therefore, they can forage in the pastures where they eat grass and weeds. In the orchards they help to control weeds and pests. Jeremy's pigs also prepare new vegetable beds during winter. Unlike cattle and sheep which were designed to thrive on 100% grass diet, pigs need to be supplemented with grain. Jeremy supplements them with flaxseed and wheat. This contrast with a standard pork feed that is based on GM soya.

How our cattle are carbon negative

At a sequestering rate of 2.5 t C/ha/year​2​, our herd of 150 cattle can sequester whopping 1,404 t CO2 from the air in the soil. That is equivalent to lifestyle emissions of 140 people.

You can follow my calculations for more details:

  • 150 cattle running on 550 acres. 550 acres = 222 ha
  • Rate of sequestering is 2.5 t of C per ha​ (1)​, so that is 2.5 x 222 = 555 t C. To put this amount of carbon into an equivalent amount of CO2, we have to multiply by -3.666 (IPCC)
    555 x -3.666 = -2,034.63 t CO2 sequestered
  • The methane emissions of cattle in CO2 equivalent terms are 12.14 kg CO2/kg of beef (2)​. Our cow deadweight is about 350 kg. So 12.14 x 350 = 4.2 t CO2 per cow. We have 150 cattle, so that is 4.2 x 150 = +630 t CO2.
  • When we take away cattle’s emissions from our sequestering rate, we conclude 2,034.63 – 630 = -1,404.63 t CO2/year

This means that a beef cow from such herd sequesters -9.3 t CO2 every year. This is nearly equivalent to yearly emissions of your lifestyle (+10 t CO2/year).

The amount of feed and fertilizers per 1 beef animal

As a calf, it is fed 100 kg of feed in a creep feeder:
60 kg barley
14 kg soya
23.5 kg sugar beet

growing steer (for 100 days) ratio:
350 kg barley
30 kg rapeseed

finishing steer (for 80 days)
600 kg barley

TOTAL feed per steer:
1010 kg barley
30 kg rapeseed
14 kg soya
23.5 kg sugar beet

Pesticide figure based on yearly application of pesticides on barley in 2018 (based on application to 0.17 ha that would produce 1 tonne of barley):

spring and winter barley were mixed in equal ratio for simplicity.
Pesticides in spring barley:
157.5 g
Pesticides in winter barley:
307.5 g

TOTAL 465 g of pesticides = to litres it is about 465 ml of pesticides per year.
