Healthy soil for a healthy planet

Healthy soil for a healthy planet

According to the Soil Association less than one sixth of the land on Earth is suitable for growing crops. When we rely so heavily on soil to produce food it’s madness that we’ve taken our soil for granted for so long. The association says that a third of the world’s...
The ethics of grass-fed

The ethics of grass-fed

We could get into a debate on the ethics of eating meat full-stop. For vegans, eating any animal product, be that meat, or dairy, or honey, would be unethical entirely. For vegetarians often the reason behind the choice is animal welfare, but there are health reasons...
Farming in the digital age

Farming in the digital age

As a small-scale producer, getting the word out about my farm and ultimately my products is crucial to its success. When there are so many farmers and producers out there doing brilliant things with their marketing, I know how important it is to use the digital age to...
Why choose free range pasture-raised chicken?

Why choose free range pasture-raised chicken?

In March this year 76.3 million broilers were slaughtered in the UK, according to Government figures. Broilers are chickens reared for meat, and this eye-watering figure might make you wonder where all these chickens are kept, and how they raised. According to the...
Ditching the carbs – introducing the Ketogenic diet

Ditching the carbs – introducing the Ketogenic diet

No doubt you’ll be familiar with the Paleo diet, which in broad terms involves cutting out anything that couldn’t be hunted or gathered in the days of our cavemen ancestors – Paleo followers will often only eat 100% grass-fed meat products to ensure they are...
The problem with pesticides

The problem with pesticides

A damning report from the UN claims the use of pesticides goes against our human rights. Those who suggest pesticides are needed to “feed the world” have been called inaccurate and “dangerously misleading”. Here at Farm2Fork we steer clear of pesticides as we like to...
Welcome to the school of the slow-cooker!

Welcome to the school of the slow-cooker!

We’re all about the slow cooker right now. You’ve probably already heard about cooking “slow and low”, but did you know there are plenty of benefits from eating meat that’s been cooked for a long time (not cremated though). Slow cooked meat retains its scrummy flavour...
Celebrating the Great British Roast

Celebrating the Great British Roast

Earlier this month a Great British favourite – the Yorkshire Pudding, enjoyed slightly more than five minutes of fame with its own special day – February 5 (should you wish to mark it in your diary for next year!) Although we love a Yorkshire pud as much as the...

Pasture-Raised Chicken

Pasture-Raised Chicken

I’m a big fan of Joel Salatin, the Virginia-based farming guru who believes in a wholesome, natural way of farming. When I saw how he raised his chickens using a really simply designed moveable pen, it seemed only natural to adopt it on the Farm2Fork farm with our new...

Tasmania

Tasmania

It seems like I’ve been travelling an awful lot recently. Some of you may know that I’ve just returned from a three-week trip to Tasmania. It’s all in the name of work, honestly! As part of my Nuffield Scholarship, I have to undertake a certain number of weeks of...
Winter on the farm – the livestock present their woolly coats!

Winter on the farm – the livestock present their woolly coats!

Many people ask us what happens to the animals here on the farm during wintertime. Do they have to go inside? Do they have to wear winter jackets? Do they need extra food? The answer is quite simply that our animals graze outside, year round, just as they would have...
The Oxford Real Farming Conference

The Oxford Real Farming Conference

Farm2Fork is blazing a trail in the grass-fed revolution, and I was lucky enough to spread the word about the benefits of grass-fed meat at a recent conference in Oxford. My presentation at The Oxford Real Farming Conference was entitled Our Grass-fed Future: A Rescue...
American Travels

American Travels

I’ve recently returned from my travels around America to discover why grass-fed meat is not promoted as widely in the UK. After winning a prestigious Nuffield Scholarship, I was tasked with researching this niche market and reporting back on my findings. In 28 days I...

Meat As Nature Intended

Here at Farm2Fork we raise traditional, native breed beef, goose and lamb to live exactly as nature intended. It means that at Greenway farm we have chosen to respect nature’s seasons, and graze our lush herb-rich meadow pastures to provide our animals with a...

Nuffield Farming Scholarship 2015

As well as a farm move Ollie has successfully won a prestigious Nuffield Farming Scholarship this year. This will allow him to investigate why the benefits of 100% grassfed meat and dairy are not widely promoted within the UK food market. Subsequently he hopes to help...
