Northfield Farm has been accredited as a butcher by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust since 1997 as a tribute to the quality of our produce and the principles according to which our stock is bred and reared.
Since opening the Northfield Farm Shop in 1997 when we supplied most of the meat from our own fields, the business has grown considerably. It has always been our aim to encourage others to breed, rear & finish rare and traditional breeds. We have what is best described as an ‘informal co-operative’ of around 30 such suppliers. This ensures that greater care & attention have been lavished upon the animals than is possible when sourcing from very large farming businesses.We believe passionately that if farming & specialist food production are to survive, the producer & consumer must strive together to ensure traceability and excellence.
