Animals

We think it is really important to understand where all our food comes from. We enjoy eating meat but want to make sure that it comes from animals that have led a healthy, happy life.

Hens

At allotmore we have a small flock of hens that we keep for eggs and to keep us amused.

They reward us with a good amount of eggs (available in the clubhouse) each day and seem pleased to see us everytime we walk past.

Pigs

Pigs come and go, our first few herdlets we used to clear the land but were such good fun that we decided to keep more.

On a very small scale we grow the pigs and then sell the meat. It is very important to us that the pigs lead stress free happy lives and we think that shows in the flavour of the meat. The pigs are great fun to watch. We spend far too much time looking at them when we are supposed to be busy.

Turkeys

Though we no longer keep Turkeys, we've really enjoyed the them (except at their bedtime!) and those who've completed the 'whole process' of Christmas have really apreciated the opportunity to connect with the reality of their roast.

Sheep

The enourmous cloud and the malting fool have done and excellent job of keeping the grass down... We're hoping to lamb in spring.
