FOR THE PUBLIC
We believe that knowing exactly where the meat on our plate comes from is becoming increasingly important; more and more of us care about food miles and where our food comes from. So many of us are disillusioned with intensive farming and animal welfare is forefront in our minds. What can we do about it? Well, for us we decided to leave suburbia behind and to do it ourselves!
We believe “Farm to Fork” is the way to go.
Our passion grew and grew and by speaking with like-minded people our ethics shone through and a demand was created for our high welfare, hands-on approach to farming. The bonus is the premium, traditional, succulent and flavoursome meat that our livestock produce.
No faceless supermarket produce, but lovingly cared for and ethical produce that you can purchase direct from us.
Sadly, much of the produce seen on our supermarket shelves, and often that seen in butchers, is not what it is labelled to be. Our produce is bone fide pedigree with proven provenance. You can rest assured that you are receiving exactly what you believe you are purchasing.
All of our produce is subject to availability, as we strive to supply seasonal produce; we are not about mass production. We think there is something special about not knowing what is available on any given day – it’s a little like opening a Christmas present and being thrilled at the surprise that is uncovered. Our produce is elite; it is worth the wait!
Our produce ingredients and allergen information can be found here.
Where to buy our produce
You can order by contacting us via our website, via social media or by telephone. We are happy to chat through your specific requirements.
If you prefer you can purchase our produce via the Dean Forest Food Hub – with collection points throughout the Forest of Dean.
We also run two pop up shops per month. One is held on the first Saturday of every month at Hellens Produce Market (Much Marcle) and the other is held once a month at The Forest Bakehouse (Pop up shop) – keep an eye on our Facebook page for dates! www.facebook.com/PlumpHillFarm
Tell us how much you wish to spend, the mix of meat and cuts you would like to purchase (lamb/mutton/pork) and we’ll prepare a meat box to order. A simple and straight forward way to enjoy our produce. Of course we appreciate that you might need some advice reference cost and cuts – we will be more than happy to help you to ensure you receive the box you desire!
Our meat boxes are made up specific to your requirements and can include usual family favourites such as lamb/pork sausages and/or burgers, bacon (streaky and back), lamb/mutton/pork chops, gammon steaks, lamb/mutton/pork roasting joints, lamb/mutton/pork mince and diced lamb/mutton/pork, liver and kidney.
RAISE TO ORDER
We encourage customers to order their own half or whole pig/lamb in advance to ensure they have a constant supply of our fabulous meat. You also save money! Ideal to spoil yourself or perhaps share with friends or family.
We are always happy to raise an animal for you, we just need sufficient notice (the earlier the better or you might miss out!), ideally around 6 months notice for pigs all year round and early spring for lambs.
We keep you in the loop and will always work towards your preferred dates. Butchery is to your requirements – we are happy to help you if you’re not sure what you want.
If you forget to pre-order it is always worth asking. Occasionally we may have a “spare”.
“First product from a fabulous, home reared, meat box selection, Gloucester Old Spot sausages definitely scored a ’10 from Len’ (well Tim actually). They were seriously good.”
If you’re looking for a special experience we are thrilled to be working with Harts Barn Cookery School and The Speech House Hotel offering “farm to fork” experience days. You will have an opportunity to enjoy an exclusive experience; an overnight stay with dinner, bed and breakfast at the iconic Speech House Hotel, a morning at our farm especially dedicated to you, feeding the animals, learning about animal husbandry and about our farming practices, followed by lunch at the farm. You will then attend the Cookery School to cure some bacon, or make some sausages or meatballs – or something different – all with our pedigree product. It’s then yours to take home with you! Contact us to find out more! Of course, we are happy to adapt the experience to suit you!
“I was given a selection of Plump Hill Farm meats as a gift this Christmas! In the pack, we had sausages, burgers, pork chops and lamb chops 🙂 Both my husband and I were super impressed with all of it; everything was absolutely delicious, and the quality was excellent. I will definitely be treating ourselves asap and buying from Deb and Stu myself! Thank you guys.”
“Luscious lamb chops from Plump Hill Farm for dinner tonight! Need to restock with more of these pronto – they were a taste sensation!”
