Why buy organic?

Organic is the only system of farming that ensures fewer pesticides and bans the routine use of antibiotics. By choosing organic, you can be confident that your meat was produced as nature intended and can guarantee what you’re eating.

We believe in the many health benefits that eating organic meat provides to our customers, many of whom buy from us because they are on specialised diets, have compromised immune systems or simply want to be sure they are eating “clean”.

As a business, we firmly believe that organic farming, particularly eliminating reliance on synthetic fertilisers, is the only way to provide sustainable food for future generations.

When you buy organic you’re getting what you pay for and most of our customers prefer to eat meat a little less often, but make it the best when they do.

We think that you’ll be hard pressed to find a bigger range of properly dry-aged organic meat.
