Our local meat producers below have all been awarded our Green Plus Label for producing meat that is consumed within a 50 mile radius, making it one of our most sustainable products.
Esgair Farm, Carmarthenshire, Wales
Martin and Nicky Dickenson started farming at Esgair in Carmarthenshire in 2004, when they took on the family herd of suckler cows which dates back 36years. They have recently established a small herd of breeding pigs to add to their enterprise of Pasture Perfect.
They host LEAF open farm Sunday, every year as they are very keen on bridging the gap between the food producer and the consumer. The care of the farm’s wildlife continues to be an important part of the management programme as well, with Barn and Short Eared Owls nesting here along with Red Kites. They now retail their own pork, bacon and sausages as well as their beef which they sell from the farm in their branded Pasture Perfect meat packs.
Curley Wells, Martletwy, Wales
David and Surrey Hartshorn farm their flock of Llyn sheep at Curley Wells near Narberth, where they rear and retail all of the lamb they produce. These are an indigenous, hardy, prolific Welsh breed from the Lleyn peninsula.
“Our lambs have spent their lives on old permanent pasture and herbal leys, says David, “where Meadow fescue, timothy, clover, chicory, birds foot trefoil, burnett , yarrow, sheep parsley and plantain are just few of the grasses and herbs found in our fields to ensure maximum flavour.“
Their lambs are taken to Maddocks Abattoir, a small family run business in Maesteg, then transferred to local butcher Andrew Rees for cutting.
For more information about Curley Wells Lamb please ring David on 07967 756426
Sofie Toy and Ashley Bonser farm their flock of Texal Cross Lleyn Ewes near Kilgetty, Pembrokeshire. They breed all of their replacements and are passionate about eating locally and sustainably. All of their lambs are sold to The Copper Hog butchers in Tenby which is just 3 miles down the road. So definitely a Green Plus label for all of their lamb!
