At Daylesford, we believe in farming sustainably. Our animals roam freely on our farm's organic pastures, and feed on the organic crops we grow ourselves. Our organic chickens spend their lives running around outside, foraging for their natural diet and developing more muscle than a bird in a conventional chicken-house. The meat is therefore firmer, and tastes best if it is rested for 5-10 minutes after cooking. At Daylesford, we have been farming organically for over 35 years with a simple passion for real food. Daylesford is a working farm, and the food we produce varies with the seasons. We've been farming organically for over 35 years, meaning our animals enjoy their natural grass and forage-based diet, growing into strong and healthy animals, free from unnecessary chemicals, antibiotics and GM feed. We choose British breeds who thrive in their native landscape and encourage healthy biodiversity on our farm. We avoid waste of any kind, so manure and kitchen waste compost are returned to the soil as rich natural fertilisers. We have even built our own abattoir to ensure the highest animal welfare and reduce food miles, which results in better tasting meat, and we spread our message far beyond the boundaries of our own fields. Each step of our journey is made with a conscience, and a love for food.
