Meat, Game and Poultry

Our beef is hung on the bone for a minimum of 21 days for a mature taste and tender meat.

The lamb is either sourced locally; bred, reared and finished on the North Wessex Downs or from our own farm at Hendred in Oxfordshire.

The sheep flock is a new enterprise and they graze on beautiful open parkland on the edge of the Downs and finished on stubble turnips which form part of the arable rotation.

The combination of having the sheep on the farm not only benefits the farm shop due to better control over the quality of the finished product and traceability of the lamb it also gives good reason to add stubble turnips into the rotation on the farm and a constant supply of manure back into the soil. On both sides it gives great benefit to the business.

Game is sourced from our own farm and woodland around the village of Brightwalton. A large range of game including wild venison is available when in season, and we are always looking at new ways in which to encourage people to try it.

You will always be able to find a good selection of game in store during their season. Please ring in advance if you are looking for something in particular.

Please note that seasons start and end on specific days of the month. These are shown under the start and end months on the tables below.
