WHY BUY LOCAL?
Eating local food decreases your carbon footprint. When your food doesn't travel long distances you are promoting better air quality and reducing pollution. These days it is so easy to nip into a supermarket. But the distances some of this food has travelled to get to those shelves can be quite staggering especially processed food. By buying your food from our farm shop you know that the food miles that the products have travelled are at a minimum.
Our animals are taken to Gages Farm slauhgterhouse at Ashburton to be killed. Mike who works for me takes them down in the landrover and cattle trailer. The animals are also butchered at this site and the meat is packed by Malcolm Patey. We know the whole story from farm to the shop.
