How Does It Work?

Edfords Farm is focused on our local community having access to better local food, we feel this should be sustainable and for us this means organic certified produce.

We are a mixed farm keeping livestock as well as growing fruit, vegetables and flowers on what is quite a traditional farm. We're a small family business using minimal machinery, local staff and farming with nature at the forefront of everything we do.

As first generation farmers we are at the start of our journey meaning we need our local community to get on board with what we have to offer, we are taking a community supported agriculture approach, this means by buying from us you support our growing farm and we support you with value for money and an opportunity to be involved in knowing where your food comes from.

It works by you signing up to shares, these are not shares in a business but shares in our produce, you box of Meat or Vegetables will be a share of what is available that week, we know in advance how many people want boxes so we can plan ahead, this means minimal waste and when there is a glut you will share this with us, when things are not is season they won't be available but we'll show you some tips along the way.

Eating with the seasons from local farms isn't just great for the planet with its reduced carbon footprint, plastic use and wastage but it's also great for you, you will have variety all year around, try things you haven't eaten before and eliminate a lot of the preservatives used in food manufacturing.

Our butchery is completely Gluten Free and from June 2022 will be Preservative free too with all of our sausages, burgers and bacon being made up of a minimum of 95% meat and only natural ingredients added for flavour.

  • Free Range Products

    We keep native rare breed sheep and raise Norfolk Horns and Jacob Sheep. These breeds are suited to the farm environment and can live outside happily throughout their lives, they are slower groing breeds so while we do offer lamb most of the lambs live over a year to produce Hogget, this is long lived lamb creating more flavour.

  • Sustainable

    Keeping animals for meat on a mass scale is not a sustainable model for the meat industry, large scale production means a vast number of pigs and poultry are raised indoors.

    All of our livestock are raised outside in their natural environment, we keep small numbers and encourage people to eat less and buy better meat, this model is sustainable and practical.

  • Ethical

    Edfords raises all our chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys outside, they have access to the same type of lush herbal leys as the sheep, having a traditional meadow type grass with numerous varieties of flowers and herbage is not only great for our stock but also for the wildlife which shares our farm with us. We encourage all kinds of wildlife to benefit from Edfords Farm through our way of farming naturally.
