Beech Ridge Farm

Wellington, Somerset

Chris and Hollie started Beech Ridge Farm in November 2009. Their slow grown chickens, ducks and geese are reared naturally in small groups, fed on a simple grain diet free from artificial additives and routine antibiotics. The birds enjoy complete free range access to the fields in the foothills of the Blackdown Hills, and are free to roam from dawn to dusk.  Slower growth rates and plenty of natural exercise gives the meat real depth of flavour and a wonderful tender texture.

The processing of all of the birds is done on site by Chris, which means they do not have to experience a long journey to a factory and ensuring they lead a stress-free life right to the end, typically for twice as long as supermarket birds.  This means consumers experience the highest quality of meat and the birds enjoy the highest welfare standards.

Chris and Hollie have recently introduced a small flock of sheep to the farm, which graze on the farm’s rich grass pastures, and are reared to the same high welfare standards as the poultry producing wonderfully tender and succulent lamb joints and cuts.
 “All the sheep we farm are completely free range and roam our luscious fields in Somerset. They are completely grass fed which we feel massively contributes to the stunning flavour in the meat.”
