ABOUT US!

GRASS FED LAMB

 

The lambs that we rear here on the farm are mainly born during Febuary and April

 

They are all from native breeding and as soon as they are strong enough they will be moved from our warm sheds to grass paddocks and smaller fields

 

Once our lambs have moved outside to the grass with the ewes they will remain there for the rest of their lives

 

We do not feed any extra feed to promote growth other than home made hay, dried grass, during the colder months when vegetation struggles to grow

 

The mutton which we sell in the shop also comes from our farm and is produced on exactly the same system. This mean that throughout their adut life, our sheep will only be inside during the night at lambing time for their safety and health.

NATURAL BEEF

 

All of our beef here at Hedges Farm is sired by Hereford Bulls. This native breed ensures many benefits from ease of handling to meat flavour and tendernous

 

Our calves are born here from January to May in large sheds, they will then go with the cows to spend the summer on grass water meadows here at Hedges Farm

 

The calves will receive no extra food during this first summer, they will rely on their mothers milk and gradually begin to eat grass

 

The calves are weaned during the late Autumn and will spend the winter in our larger sheds feeding as and when they wish to

 

Even once weaned the younger cattle will be fed purely our home produced cereal and silage diet with

no additives.
