status: organic
Product: meat
Details: All the meat we sell comes from animals born and reared on our farm in the Llanthony Valley, in the heart of the Black Mountains. We have a suckler herd of pedigree Welsh Black cattle which are reared on grass and our own conserved forage. The breed thrives on traditional grassland and the meat is distinctive and much acclaimed. The lamb and mutton come from our flocks of Badger faced Welsh mountain and white faced woodland sheep. Badger faced Welsh mountain sheep are an ancient breed, dating back to the 14th century and the hardy and attractive ewes and lambs are ideally suited to grazing the hillside and producing quality small carcasses from grass. Whitefaced woodland sheep are a very rare hill breed from Yorkshire ideally suited to extensive grazing on the Welsh mountains. We also have a small herd of organic British Lop pigs. British Lops are one of the rarest breed of pigs in the British Isles. The pork is tasty and succulent and the crackling superbly crispy. The farm is biodynamic, a form of organic farming developed by Rudolph Steiner. The beef and lamb is fully biodynamic, the pork is registered organic by the BDAA rather than biodynamic as we cannot grow our own pig feed and so have to buy in organic feed. Our animals are slaughtered at the nearest abattoir: James at Raglan for the lambs and pigs and Ensors, at Cinderford, for the Cattle. We sell our meat at Abergavenny Farmers Market (4th Thursday of every month) and at Usk Farmers Market (first and third Saturday of every month). Visitors see map are also welcome at the farm by prior arrangement. If your are interested in buying half pigs, jointed and ready for the freezer, eighths or quarters of Welsh Black beef or half lambs from our flocks of rare and traditional breed sheep, please ask.
