Organic Christmas Meat
Organic Christmas Meat
The quality of the food we produce has a profound impact on our own health and the health of the planet, so when it comes to eating meat, our philosophy is to eat a little less meat overall, so that the meat you do buy can be higher welfare, organic meat.
Making the swap to smaller portions of higher quality organic meat can have a positive impact, not just on the environment, but on farm animal welfare and our health too.
With that in mind here’s our selection of the best meat options to bring to your table this year, from UK-grown livestock reared on higher welfare, organic farms.
Higher Hacknell Beef, Lamb & Poultry - Various Prices
Winners of the Best Organic Meat Category at our 2019 BOOM Awards, Higher Hacknell have a huge range of organic meats and Christmas poultry available for delivery nationally. Celebrate in style with a beef fore rib or sirloin on the bone from their pedigree South Devon cattle, or try their free-range bronze turkey or goose, the perfect centerpiece for the Christmas table.
Waitrose, Duchy Pork Sausagemeat - £3.49
Using only the most succulent shoulder and belly cuts, this Duchy organic sausagemeat is made with a special blend of herbs and spices. Organic pigs from the Duchy range are reared to the very highest animal welfare standards by a select group of farmers.
Daylesford, Pigs in Blankets - £8.50
Perfectly seasoned little chipolata sausages wrapped in streaky bacon that’s been smoked over applewood chips. Packed with flavour, this meat comes from animals raised to the highest animal welfare, from Daylesford's Gloucestershire farm.
Angel Cottage, Organic Chicken & Goose - From £15.00
The homegrown poultry from Angel Cottage has been raised to the organic standards. Winner of Best poultry at our 2017 BOOM Awards, this Dorset farm believes in a simpler, slower way of farming, one that is inspired by, works with, and enhances the environment on which it relies.
Peelham Farm Charcuterie Platter - £28.00
If you’re looking to supplement your cheese board with some cured meats this Christmas, try this organic charcuterie from Peelham Farm. Naturally fermented, it’s made from their own free-range rarebreed cross pigs and includes two salamis and salami snacking sticks as well as two sliced and airdried meats.
Eversfield's Organic Bronze Turkey - From £66.00
Eversfield’s Heritage turkeys are fed on a mixture of organic home grown cereals and enjoy foraging for themselves in the pasture-rich meadows of the Malseed family farm on Dartmoor. They are hung for up to two weeks to develop their flavour and texture. Due to the natural marbling throughout the meat, these turkeys take less time to cook too.
Coombe Farm, Kelly Bronze Turkeys - From £85.00
Nestled deep in Devon's Otter Valley, Coombe Farm’s turkeys are reared by Ross Gardener, who runs an organic system with animal welfare at its core - the turkeys have the freedom to roam in pastures or shelter in barns, eating a natural diet that’s supplemented by the grass they graze. Kelly Bronze turkeys are an old-fashioned breed slow-grown to provide fantastic flavour and an even coverage of meat.
Riverford, Organic Bronze Turkey - From £87.00
Riverford’s traditional slow-growing free range Bronze birds are reared on small Westcountry farms where they graze freely on organic pasture. This gives rich, juicy meat with an intense natural flavour. Along with whole turkeys, a range of joints for smaller gatherings are available, both stuffed and unstuffed. Delivery is free and they arrive in insulated packaging to stay cool on your doorstep.
