From our small holding in Devon we are able to provide a small and exclusive number of Lamb and Pork Meat boxes.
Our ethos is built around ethical and wholesome food where our livestock is allowed a free-ranging and natural existence. If you are interested in seeing more of our Small Holding then click here or follow us on Instagram.

About Our Lamb Boxes
Because our lambs are allowed to grow slowly to maturity (typically 6-9 months) compared to an average 3-month-old supermarket lamb they will require longer and lower cooking times.
Between 1 and 2 years of age they are known as hogget, and are a delicious cross between tender lamb and full-flavoured mutton.
About Our Pork Boxes
The pork in our boxes can be anything from 4 months to 10 months old. The younger smaller animals called ‘Porkers’ are for joints etc. whilst the older larger animals known as ‘Baconers’ are just as described! In the middle you have the ‘Cutters’ that give us larger joints. Due to the leanness of our pork thanks to its active life we are able to aim for around 8 months to maximise quality pork without excess fat.
How it works
Sign up for our newsletter to be notified of when we have availability of boxes. There is no commitment at this stage.
We will send out a mailing a month or two in advance asking people to express interest and getting an idea of what products and joints there is interest for.
Dates are confirmed and orders placed. You would be expected to pay for your box at this time.
Your order will be delivered by hand or by overnight courier in special frozen food packaging.
Do you sell items that are not just a full box?
Yes, we will sell items that do not make a full box but this is based on availability? You can see our current price list here.
How do the Box and Portion Sizes work?
Weights where shown are approximate. We work on the basis of 250g/person/serving.
Our large boxes contain larger joints aimed at 4 person with extra quanities of the other items. The small boxes have smaller 2 person joints.
Chops and Belly slices are thick-sliced to make the most of the lean and tender meat of our well-exercised woodland pigs.
What’s your Availability?
Our peak availability is around Summer/Autumn every year with some items available all year around.
We will always do our best to ensure that each box is as described but may on occasions need to make substitutions.
Can you deliver or post us a box?
We are able to delivery boxes if geographically suitable!
Postage and Packing is not included as we would prefer to ensure that everyone gets best value delivery on their purchase. If you would like a post posting get in touch.
But what about fitting it in our Freezer?
Experience says that a half a pig will take up approximately 26l (litres) once prepared by our butcher. This means in a small under counter Freezer (50l 3/4 drawers) the meat will take up a couple of drawers. In a larger stand-up or chest freezer (150l+) you could find that the meat takes up a single drawer or less.
Lamb is a bit more compact with half taking up no more than one drawer in a stand up freezer.
