WHO WE ARE
Our family has been farmers and butchers for over 70 years, so you could say we know a few things about good meat here at Farm & Fork. We’re still based at the same farm near the Welsh village of Rhosllanerchrugog, that our family moved to all those years ago, and we have no intention of going anywhere else. The business in now in the hands of third generation butcher Rich Jones and brother-in-law Carl Andrew.
We’re really passionate about producing the tastiest British meat from happy and ethically reared animals.
How can we be sure about this? Well, the majority of the meat we sell comes from our own grass fed animals, reared on our own land. Simple. We farm Welsh Black and Limousin cattle, and Traditional Welsh Mountain and Suffolk sheep. Our farm is Farm Assured, which means that we’re inspected annually to make sure that we reach the highest possible welfare standards. When we’re short of supply from our own farm we put our trust in the local farmers that our family has dealt with for decades. Buying direct from our neighbouring farming friends means that we can be sure of the welfare of the animals and the quality of your meat. The main slaughter house we use is less than 2 miles from our farm, so the animals don’t have to travel great distances and stress is kept to a minimum.
Our animals are farmed responsibly and are left free to graze the pastures of the Welsh hills. We certainly don’t agree with intensively farmed, grain-fed animals that are used for the mass production of much of the meat available in supermarkets.
