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 take an interest in the “farm to fork” journey. So many of us are disillusioned with intensive farming and animal welfare is forefront in our minds. For the Trade we believe that ethical reared produce is increasingly playing a part in where the public choose to dine, where they chose to purchase their produce.

What can we do about it? Well, for us we decided to do it ourselves.

We are creating a niche for our produce, like-minded businesses who share our ethics and appreciate our high welfare, hands-on approach to farming.  We are unique; we are not about mass production – we are the specials board!

Our produce ingredients and allergen information can be found here.

Why “Pedigree with Provenance”?

We are passionate about maintaining our national heritage; our breeds are all native to the UK and all are registered pedigrees. They are all also classified as rare breeds and are either currently at risk of extinction or have been in recent years.

All our produce has proven provenance, hence our tagline “Pedigree with Provenance”. Food traceability and food miles are so important – why import when we have fabulous British food on our doorstep? We are proud to be Brexit proof!

We fervently support our breed societies in fighting to ensure that only pedigree meat is labelled as such. Sadly, much of the produce seen on our supermarket shelves, and often that seen in butchers, is not what it is labelled to be. We provide our customers with evidence that the produce they are purchasing is bone fide pedigree with proven provenance. Our customers can rest assured that they are receiving exactly what they believe they are purchasing.

Don’t believe what you’ve heard about mutton. I’ve been a professional chef for over 10 years. All of the produce from plump hill farm is exceptional, however the mutton blew me away. Don’t hesitate, it may be the best thing you’ve ever tasted.”

Working in partnership – shared ethics, happy customers

We are high-end and are thrilled to be working with restaurants, caterers, retailers and wholesalers who share our ethics.

We are keen to grow with our trade customers and to work with them and their requirements. To work in partnership providing premium seasonal produce, specials boards and the like.

We are honoured to be working with the Glen Yr Afon Hotel in Usk, The Priory Inn, Tetbury and The Speech House Hotel here in the Forest of Dean.  They each use us because of our strong ethics and the premium produce that we supply.

We are not about mass production but about providing that something special, 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. We want to help you create that demand for something special.

"Lovely people with beautiful proper meats. When I had their bacon it took me back 50 years to my time on a farm where meat tasted like it should. I highly recommend Plump Hill. They will from now on supply all our lamb, pork and Mutton."

“It’s always fabulous to find new independent passionate small producers who share the same ethos as us here at Restaurant 1861 and Deb at Plump Hill is exactly that. The provenance of all our ingredients is key to what we do from the fruit and vegetables grown by Kate’s father, right through to all other produce including the Shropshire lambs and Gloucester Old Spot pork Deb is rearing.”
