The Farm Family
We are so proud to be working with such incredibly talented artisan producers that create their delicious products on-site, at The Farm. Not forgetting Flourish - our outdoor education team.
Lordswood supplies us with pork, lamb and beef. They strive to produce fantastic produce which has been cared for to exceptional welfare standards and farming sustainably.
Pedigree British Lop Pigs are native to the UK and an endangered rare breed, with between 100-200 in the UK. Lordswood have a conservation programme where they select the best piglets to remain within the herd either to breed from or to sell to breeders around the UK to help increase lop numbers. They usually have litters between 8-14 and they are fantastic mothers. The other pigs are then fattened on a barley mix which is grown locally, a couple of fields away from The Farm.
Pedigree Kerry Hill sheep are also a rare breed. They originate from Kerry in Wales and are typical hill sheep. Pedigree New Zealand Suffolks are bred for their easy lambing, vigorous, fast growing lambs.
Pedigree British White Cattle are also a rare breed with between 750-1500 in the UK. They are quiet cattle, which are often grass fed and are therefore very sustainable.
We show the British White Cattle around the UK, having achieved Small Herd of the Year 2016, Bull of the Year 2018, Senior Heifer of the Year 2019 and Cow of the Year 2019.
