How it all began…
In 2002, we set about rearing our own meat to supply ourselves, our families and friends as an experiment after becoming increasingly frustrated with the quality of the meat available from the supermarkets. Jed had worked within farming and on the farm itself for 25 years and had always had a keen interest in rearing his own animals, in particular pigs.
We bought 10 piglets and 6 chickens and on one very poignant Sunday morning we put out the first box of eggs at the farm gate, to return later that evening to find that they had sold. It was at this point that Jed uttered the immortal words… “we should open a farm shop!”
