We've always supported the idea of eating less meat but at a higher quality. This box gives a decent selection for a variety of meals without breaking the bank. There's something for everyone, from special Sunday roasts to a range of weekly favourites.
We source our meat from The Story, a local organisation that works directly with farmers to provide a range of high quality assured meat. Not all of the meat included in the meat box is currently certified as organic; this is partly because the Blagdon butchers don't pay the fee that would give them organic certification.
The following details the various origins and certifications of the meat included in our boxes: beef from Herons Green Farm, certified as Pasture Fed (Pasture Fed Livestock Association or PFLA) and certified organic (Organic Farmers and Growers or OF&G); lamb from Yeo Valley, certified organic (Soil Association), and also from Fernhill Farm, certified as PFLA (but not organic); pork from Herons Green Farm, organic and non-organically reared (not certified), or, when not available locally, produced free range (not certified organic). Exact contents may vary. Please note that there is no chicken in this box.
