The Farms and Suppliers We Use

We take great pride in sourcing our meat from local farms farms, ideally within 20 miles of the shop, so that you can be assured of where your delivery is ultimately sourced from, with our farm to fork guarantee. You’ll find details of some of the farms that supply us below.

Beef

All of our beef is sourced from higher welfare farms specialising in Galloway, Beef Shorthorn, Aberdeen Angus bloodlines and our firm favourite, pedigree Red Devons

Radley farm, Bishops Nympton – All the stock on the farm are fed a mainly grass based diet and finished as naturally as possible, producing what we believe to be a succulent and flavoursome product which benefits from the use of traditional British breeds.

Mornacott Estate, Bishops Nympton, South Molton – Large pedigree Red Devon herd. Over 100 head of suckler cows producing superb beef, all of which are traditionally finished.

Pork

Richard Gibbins, Stoke Canon – We source the majority of our pork – all of which are gilts (female) from this farm just south of Tiverton, with the remainder sourced within a 20 mile radius of our shop in South Molton. We prefer gilts over boar as the flavour and fat cover is better suited to cooks requirements.

Lamb

The majority of our lamb comes from farms on Exmoor National Park and the fringes as we believe this meat boast a unique taste and tenderness, with the balance purchased through Sedgemoor Market in Bridgwater.

Poultry

Carefully selected from farms around the South West our fresh poultry range includes chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys and corn fed chicken. Singling out Marsh Farm in Bude, Cornwall, our free range chickens and ducks are full of the flavour you would expect from slow grown, grass fed poultry. Complete traceability and higher welfare are the standards that Farmer Keith Wicketts insists on for this sought after product.
