Our meat

100% Grass fed beef

Why choose our grass fed beef? Our meat is not just high quality. It is about what we do for our soil, land, wildlife and the planet

100% Grass fed lamb

Find out how the rare breed slow grown sheep live and are managed on grass. And how we’re helping the ladscape at the same time. Sheep do not need to be destructive to the environment.

Pastured chicken

The most ethical, tasty and nutritious chicken you can find. It’s truly special. A world of difference from the cheap mass produced chicken found in the shops.

Free range pork

Our woodland and pastured pigs are as free-range as pigs can be. Running free in an old woodland or a pasture, rooting around for nuts and eating vegetation.

Cost of our meat

What is involved in producing our meat? Why does it end up costing more than meat in a shop?
