OUR BRAND VALUES*

Located on the River Leadon, just downstream from the birthplace of Dick Whittington, Everes's Farm is the home of the Noent herd of Gloucester cattle and the Everes's flock of Ryeland sheep. At Everes's Farm our ethos is one of care; care for our animals and care for the environment in which they are reared. There are no short cuts or fast tracking in the way we produce our meat. We believe the best meat comes from native farm breeds that have been allowed to grow at their own pace on a wholesome, natural diet. This results in healthy and happy animals that produce delicious-tasting meat. The farm farm is managed in accordance with Higher Level Stewardship rules, which helps to maintain an integral part of the traditional English countryside as well as contributing towards fine meat products. Fields are small and contain native grasses and deep-rooted wild flowers that draw nutrients from the fertile soil, along with clovers that collect nitrogen from the air and fix it in the ground. Each field is surrounded by thick hedges that provide vital natural corridors for wildlife.

OUR COMMITMENTS*

Sustainability

At Everes's Farm we are committed to sustainable farming practices. We strive to reduce waste where possible and keep our carbon footprint to a minimum. Local abattoirs ensure no journey time is longer than thirty minutes, dramatically reducing stress on the animal which in turn improves the eating quality of the meat. It is our passion that we can preserve heritage breeds for future generations to enjoy, therefore we ensure all our farming practices are best for our animals and the environment they live in.

Environment

Everes's Farm does not use any pesticides or inorganic fertitilsers. Our animals are not fed any genetically modified feed. We believe our stock should grow at their own pace and alongside nature. This slow growing process means healthy and happier livestock. It also provides a benefit to our environment as permanent pastures store carbon, a greenhouse gas, and act as a brake for floodwater. Grazing with livestock improves the fertility of the soil and enhances biodiversity, and does not create the same waste disposal issues as those associated with livestock reared in sheds.

Local Communities

We work closely with our local community to promote local heritage breeds, we also employ from our local community.

Packaging & Waste

We always aim to reduce any waste material on the farm. All our packaging is recyclable where possible.

Inspiring & Educating

One of our agricultural buildings on the farm has been turned in to a fully equipped classroom which can be used by local schools and groups studying at the farm. We are open to visits from schools and other groups and always like to promote heritage breeds and farming. Please contact us if you wish to make a visit enquiry

Energy Reduction
