All our meat comes from local farms to help reduce our carbon footprint and is free range where possible.
All our pork comes from the famous Blythburgh free range pigs in Suffolk.
Supplied by National Pig Farmer of the Year 2005, Jimmy Butler, the Blythburgh herd is allowed to roam free and grow naturally without hormones or antibiotic growth promoters. They are fed on a natural balanced diet, free from Genetically Modified (GM) products.
All our beef is supplied by P O Almey & sons of Tavistock Farm near North Walsham. The Almey family have been farming cattle for generations and have a good stock of quality animals all year round.
The breeds of cattle we have are mostly Simmental and Limosin (continental breeds which are famed for their lean tender meat) crossed with native breeds such as Hereford, Shorthorn and Aberdeen Angus which are known for their marbled texture.
The Cattle are free to graze in large fields at a ratio of at least one acre per animal. Once the animals have reached maturity usually 20-24 months they are then fattened on a higher calorie finishing ration to give them better a flavour.
To furthermore improve the flavour and tenderness we hang the carcasses in our specific cold store for between 21-28 days prior butchering
Our lamb is supplied by Chris Bustance of Lincolnshire, and it is absolutely first class!
We trust Chris and his ability to provide us with the very best lamb available this side of Wales.
