Nourished CommunitiesåÊare extremely fortunate to be working with a farming collective who who specialise in rearing and butchering native breeds of Pork, Beef, Lamb and Chicken (See info on breeds below in italics)
What about the lamb?åÊ
North Yorkshire is a region renowned for being an excellent sheep producing area because of it‰Ûªs limestone soils and topography. Lamb is available all year round and mutton is growing in popularity. TheiråÊflocksåÊareåÊkept on limestone based land, which is free draining and therefore very good ground for raising sheep. The grass from this land is the mainstay of their diet, but in the winter months when this is not as available we provide supplements to ensure the flock receives all the nutrients it requires.
TheyåÊare nestled near the top of Sutton Bank in the North York Moors National Park, the Ashbridge family has farmed in Cold Kirby for three generations. The traditional methods of breeding, rearing and finishing livestock used in our grandfather‰Ûªs days are still evident inåÊtheir farming protocols. The breedsåÊ chosen are well suited to outdoor rearing and quite simply, taste incredible ‰ÛÒ ‰ÛÏthe proof of the pudding is in the eating‰Û ;)
They place enormous value on animal welfare, traditional farming method and quality of meat. Supplying some of the country's best known chefs andåÊrestaurantersåÊincluding a large number of TV celebs.
