Meet the people we work with.
Our aim is to source the very best meat.
The relationship we have built up with our suppliers over the years is fundamental to what we do. Knowing where our meat comes from means that we can guarantee that only the finest meats will make it on to your plates.
Spread over 450 acres in the middle of the South Downs national park and just 5 miles away from our shop, Roly and Camila (together with their children and two dogs) run the beautiful and historic Saddlescombe Farm. Together, they produce some of the most exquisite lamb and beef we’ve ever seen.
Given the locality and stunning quality of the produce, it makes sense then that a vast majority of our lamb and beef comes from Saddlescombe Farm based in the heart of the rich and verdant farmland of the South Downs National Pork.
These truly free range pigs can be found roaming the fields on top of the South Downs near Brighton. These pigs enjoy a decent life. They are born outside in insulated huts and live in the fields for their entire life. In summer they bathe in mud wallows to protect themselves from the sun. In winter they are provided deep beds of clean straw for them to bury themselves in to keep warm. These pigs are a Duroc/Hampshire cross. These breeds confer great qualities on the pork producing succulent and tender meat.
Fosse Meadows Farm produces free-range, slow-grown chickens all year round. The traditional French breed chickens are slow-reared to full maturity, (to 81 days), with access to mobile sheds during the daytime when bad weather occurs and overnight for protection from foxes. They are fed an additive-free ethically sourced diet with full access to wild flower pasture and hedge rows, roaming freely, scratching around in the clover fields and at the bottom of trees and hedges.
