Organic meat means meat reared to the highest standards of animal welfare, without the routine use of antibiotics and chemical enhancers, and will high quality feed in their diets and space to roam around ouside.
Our organic pork herd contains 7 sows - soon to be 8 - who farrow twice a year. We keep them in stable family groups, give the piiglets 9-10 weeks to wean naturally, keep the pigs outside as much of the yaer as possible, and have even been able to start keeping some sows in teh woods! Our beef herd is small, but growing, and our cows live entirely off of grass, as is also the case at the farms we purchase beef from. Our sheep flock is also in the process of re-development, and for now we are buying in organic lamb from nearbly organic farms, and will be producing our own mutton and lamb from around August. We also rearr organi turkeys for Christmas, which you can reserve here for a deposit of £20. The final birds last year ranged between 4 and 9 kiloes for the most part, with final prices of between ££0 and £120. If you want to taste how excellent Whitmuir turkeys taste, we'd recommend you try one of the ones we have frozen from last year (when, sadly, supply exceeded demand).
