Lauriston FarmWe were contacted on Twitter (@CPRECambs) and asked to include Lauriston Farm (https://www.lauristonfarm.co.uk/) on this list. It is a community-owned 210 acre biodynamic social farm on the Blackwater Estuary, Goldhanger, Essex - so how could we possibly omit it?

The farm is home to rare breed Shetland cattle and North Ronaldsay sheep, bee hives, laying hens, vegetables and woodland. Eighty-five percent of the farm is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and within this, there are two listed ancient monuments.

Turkeys & Other Seasonal Fare in Cambridgeshire

Turkey

Image from http://www.freeimageslive.co.uk/free_stock_image/livingturkey0692jpg

With Christmas fast approaching, our contributor Lizzie Bannister has very kindly looked into where we can buy turkeys and other seasonal fare that have been raised with high welfare standards. We are committed to supporting local food providers and sellers, the #BackBritishFarming movement and the NFU’s #ProudtoProduce campaign that celebrates farmers’ roles in the light of the Agriculture Bill.

Believe it or not, there is a #BuyMyTurkey day (4th December) as part of the NFU Countryside’s campaigns.

Lizzie visited https://www.countrysideonline.co.uk/hobbies-and-leisure/food-and-cooking/turkey-finder-find-your-nearest-turkey-producer/ to create the list below:


 

Bettyshttps://www.bettysmeats.co.uk/ Birds are raised outdoors with great standards of living and fed quality feed with no growth enhancers and the farmers have full control over the whole process. Pigs are also raised with similar standards on this smallholding on the Ramsay Forty Foot. Online orders are being taken, but demand has been so high this year you need to ring Matt on 07786 032 105. https://twitter.com/piggingreat
