PORK, POULTRY & OTHER MEAT
We also supply locally sourced pork, poultry and game. Game may need to be ordered in advance and will often be frozen due to seasons.
We rear our own White, Bronze and Norfolk Black turkeys for Christmas
These do need to be pre ordered
We try to keep some in the freezer for customers special occassions during the year as well as some very large chickens
GRASS FED LAMB

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.
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
