The cows are all born less than 200m from the majestic Bowthorpe Oak, and in the spring graze the fresh grass in the paddocks around the ancient tree. Traditional mixed farming methods help to drive a sustainable way of producing food. Growing cereal crops provides the animals with supplement winter feed and bedding that is converted by cows into natural fertiliser to help the crops grow, thus reducing the need for artificial fertilizers. Rotational grassland is used to combat weeds, improve soil health and provide fresh grazing for livestock.
The farm conforms to the highest welfare standards and undergoes a rigorous farm assurance inspection annually. The cattle are run as a closed herd, meaning no animals are moved on to the holding without first being blood tested. This reduces the risk of introducing our animals to illness, giving you the confidence of purchasing quality fully traceable meat from field to fork.
Lincoln Red cattle are one of the oldest UK native breeds, which makes them slower maturing than commercial breeds. The Pedigree Lincoln Red blood lines can be traced back through generations just like your own family tree. The Lincoln Red consist of a higher fat content than most modern breeds and produces beautiful marbled, succulent flavoured meat. Hung for over 4 weeks, quality beef with such provenance cannot be rushed.
Our sheep flock is made up of two breeds, our Texel lambs are ready in the autumn after being on grass all summer they taste lovely and fresh. Our Jacob’s are a slow maturing breed that are ready in the following spring, with the added age comes a much deeper flavour that is unique to this breed and must be tried to be appreciated
Our home reared Berkshire pork is packed full of flavour. Berkshire is a slow maturing breed with an excellent fat covering which is great for crackling. Our handmade Lincolnshire sausages are perfect for the bbq or breakfast, with gluten free options available.
