In the farm shop and on our website you are able to buy the food produced
on our own three farms – Corran Farm, Lower Kestle Farm and Higher Kestle Farm and other local meat producers. Our beef and lamb is fully traceable, having spent all its life on our farm.
We are farm assured by:
FABBL – Farm Assured British Beef & Lamb
The FABBL Assurance Scheme inspect us annually to ensure we are rearing and growing our crops to a very high standard.
The majority of the animals that we raise on our home farms are traditional local breeds for example -the South Devon beef cattle – this is the largest of the native British cattle breeds and is well known for its maternal and beef qualities. We also raise Polled Dorset sheep – they are an all-white, medium-sized sheep, prolific and able to breed out of season. This fact makes it a suitable breed for us to raise in order that we can supply the farm shop with a steady supply of home bred and reared lamb and mutton all the year around.
All of our animals are free range, non-intensive and grass fed. Their diet is supplemented by our own home grown feeds, with the protein content derived from our lupin crop. All feed is guaranteed to be a non-genetically modified source of protein.
The pork we supply at our shop all comes from Cornish farms that are located as close to the shop as we can source.
Most of the beef we supply comes from animals born on our farm (subject to availability). From our South Devon and Limousin suckler cows. All the feed eaten by these animals is grown on the farm. Barley and grass are supplemented with protein from our homegrown lupins.
The health of our animals is of a high standard and we ensure the animals have the five freedoms endorsed by the RSPCA: freedom from hunger, thirst, pain, fear and freedom of movement.
Our lambs are born on the farm and have been reared on grass and ewes milk, receiving only small amounts of homegrown supplementary feed. This traditional feeding system gives the meat succulence and flavour, lacking from intensive production systems. We have received many letters of appreciation of our lamb.
