Support your local producers this Christmas.
We will be offering a full range of Christmas meats through our Elms Farm shops this Christmas supporting local producers as well as other farmers to offer a large choice to our customers and suit all budgets.
When shopping with us you are promoting the welfare of animals and supporting sustainable farming. Wherever possible, we always give priority to local and non-intensive farms.
Meet our producers for the festive season.
We buy our Free range turkeys and Traditional turkeys from a family run farm based in Barkby, Leicestershire, who specialise in producing high-quality turkeys. Your Christmas turkey will have been reared less than 30 miles, for at least 22 weeks, which means they are twice the age of fast growing commercial turkeys when they reach full maturity.
Our geese come from the Botterill family in Croxton Kerrial, a village well known for the picturesque sight of flocks of geese being herded through the streets (see picture below).
We rear our native breeds of cattle here, at Elms Farm. Our cattle enjoy great outdoors living and are entirely grass-reared and finished. We choose not feed them with grain, instead we allow them to grow at their own pace. We do also supply a range of British sourced beef from farms that shares our high welfare standards to suit all budgets.
Our Free Range pork, chicken and cockerels come from a local supplier- Packington Free Range. We cure our own bacon and gammons. Our sausages are handmade by our butchers with a variety of flavours using Packington Free Range Pork.
