Home grown meat
We are fully registered as a food business with a 5-star rating. This gives us the opportunity to sell a proportion of the meat we raise to help support the costs of rearing the animals and to share the wonderful flavours of properly raised stock. You simply cannot buy pork or hogget with provenance to match ours in the supermarkets. Our pigs are outdoor-reared with continuous access to half an acre of ground to root up and wallow in throughout their time with us. Our sheep are not fed concentrates to push their growth and mature for over four times as long as commercial lamb.
Whilst our prices are more than you would pay in the supermarket they reflect the costs inherent in providing these high welfare standards and longer production times. Unless purchasing as we collect from the butcher all meat is supplied frozen and must be transferred directly to your freezer. Meat can be collected from the farm by appointment or, if we pass your way, we may be able to drop it off.
Pasture-fed Hebridean hogget and mutton
Hogget comes from sheep between one and two years old and perhaps has the best balance of flavour and tenderness. Our Hebrideans are raised on pasture and given around 16 months to mature during which time they develop the "deliciously fine flavour" they are renowned for.
The dark, succulent and distinctly sweet meat has a subtle gamey flavour that has incorporated the aromas of our semi-species rich upland hay meadow and diverse hedgerows. It has also been found to be lower in free cholesterol and higher in healthy poly-unsaturated omega-3 and 6 fatty acids.
Occasionally we also have mutton for sale. Mutton, from over two year old sheep, is renowned for its depth of flavour and is rapidly gaining favour amongst a number of top chefs.
We sell direct, for collection from the farm, as half/whole hogget boxes or occasionally individual cuts may be available.
Update: 2021 hogget is now sold out. If you would like to add your name to the waiting list for next year's half hogget boxes, please drop us an email.
