We get our mutton from Gazegill Organic Farm. Their rare-breed organic sheep are home reared and finished in their species-rich meadows.
Gazegill sheep are a mixed bunch but their main flock are the Hampshire Downs, a breed that produce a strong lamb which in early spring are up and doing well whatever the weather, a great and versatile breed.
Species rich hay meadows, medieval ridge and furrow, dew ponds and even a roman road form some of the farms archaeological features although it is the species rich hay meadows which have a direct impact on today’s produce. Their biological heritage meadows have over fifty species and in some areas orchids and other gems can be found, we believe that every plant species has a food chain that stems from it and this in turn is what builds a rich, diverse and healthy local ecosystem and fantastic tasting meat!
