Mushroom Explosion

Although the weather has felt pretty miserable over the last few weeks it’s been absolutely perfect for mushrooms – there’s been an explosion in the local area and James, our photographer from ProHides, has been out in the rain capturing images.  We don’t want you to miss out though so if you’ve got a camera, big or small, why not join him on Sunday 3rd of November for a photowalk to see some of these wonders for yourself.

Farm Safaris for livestock, landscapes and wildlife at Eastbrook Farm

A lot of love out there for Corned Beef (without a key)

Delighted that our organic Corned Beef is being applauded across the land. 5* reviews with Abel and Cole and a Silver award at British Charcuterie Live!

Organic Pigs = High Welfare

BANNED! These common practices are all banned under Soil Association Organic standards:

- Nose ringing - used to prevent pigs natural rooting behaviour

- Tail docking - pigs in confined spaces often bite each other’s tails, so non-organic producers dock tails to prevent this

- Farrowing crates - small metal cage only inches wider than the female pig, used around the time she gives birth to restrict her movement and prevent her from following maternal instincts.

- Routine use of antibiotics.
