Welcome to our farm
When we returned to the family farm from London we had a dream to produce meat that we ourselves would want to buy. Where the whole process was transparent, highly ethical, and sustainable. But also meat so full of flavour that eating it was a joy that stuck in the mind.
We’re at the beginning of a story where we farm the best animals we can, to the highest standards we know. And we offer it to a group of like-minded people who genuinely care and understand what it means to eat good meat.
Alastair & Katherine
We farm our sheep using 'holistic grazing' techniques. That means we move them to a new paddock every couple of days. This leads to long rest periods during which new grasses grow, drawing down CO2 through photosynthesis and locking it into the soil biology.
But it also means we have lots of varied and undisturbed habitat for insects and birds to call home.
We farm Romney and Suffolk sheep. Traditional breeds that are slow grown on an entirely grass and herb diet. Our meadows include diverse mixes of grasses, herbs and flowers including clovers, plantain, birdsfoot trefoil, cocksfoot and chicory.
Pasture reared turkeys
Traditional Kelly Bronze turkeys, reared by hand in our fruit orchard. These beauties are slow grown and properly free range. Hand finished, hand plucked and game hung for two weeks.
Chilled, wrapped and ready in time for Christmas.
Buy a share in a traditional breed pig. Roaming our farm and eating off-cuts from organic veggies, reducing food waste.
Once the pig reaches prime weight you claim your share in sausages, belly pork and other cuts.

A family farm
We've been farming for three generations in Yorkshire, which makes us relative newcomers. Alastair, and his wife Katherine, returned to the farm in 2017 with a passion for rearing animals in a way that regenerates nature and the environment.
We're also collecting haphazard sheepdogs.
We farm to leave our fields, biodiversity, environment and livestock in a better place each year.
This means we have an enormous focus on detail when it comes to everything from animal husbandry to planting new crops.
We don't just talk-the-talk. If you choose to follow us on instagram then you can see us explain why we farm the way we do.
