In The Press
We have been featured on Live Frankly's website in their article "‘Organic farming’, ‘Regenerative agriculture’, ‘Free-range’: We ask what is ‘good food’ and ‘good farming’?" - referencing thoughts and perspectives from our farm manager, Ryan Sloman-Brown.
"The issue with using the term ‘regenerative’ is that farmers are interpreting it differently and doing it to differing degrees. Plus, larger companies are co-opting the word, so anyone can call themselves ‘regenerative’ even if their impact is not actually that good for the environment."
We're thrilled that our Small Organic Barbecue Box has been featured in Live Frankly's 'Best UK BBQ Delivery Boxes from Sustainable British Farms' article.

"Organic, slow-grown lamb makes the perfect main dish for Easter. Coombe Farm Organic’s lamb comes from their hardy flock of cross-bred sheep – natural lawnmowers who graze the diverse, pesticide-free pastures of their solar powered Somerset farm. Rearing grass-fed animals slowly in a high-welfare system is at the heart of what they do."

Organic Duck & Trimmings Box: "We’ve already written about the alternative meats to eat this Christmas instead of turkey, and we really think duck is an absolutely worthy option. This trimmings box comes with the whole organic duck, organic stuffing, pigs in blankets and nitrate-free unsmoked streaky bacon, as well as sauces to make everything sing."
We have been featured on Live Frankly's website in their article "Alternatives to Christmas turkey: why you should opt for duck, goose or venison this year."
"Times are changing. People are increasingly becoming aware of the reality of intensive farming, the ethics behind rearing meat, and are looking for more sustainable options.
At Christmas, we often eat a lot of meat as this time of year is synonymous with rich and indulgent food. But, there’s plenty of meat that fits the bill other than turkey. Gamey meats, for example, tick the exciting flavour box. They are also typically more sustainable than mass-produced supermarket turkeys as the animals live longer and better lives."
A big thank you to Live Frankly for featuring us in their article "How to get the best-tasting turkey this Christmas".
"Not all turkeys are created equal. Well, they may have been. But, they certainly don’t all taste the same. That’s not all down to our cooking skills - it’s because of the huge disparity in how they are farmed.
Coombe Farm Organic's organic Bronze turkey’s come from Walter’s Turkey’s organic farm in Berkshire, where the birds have space to run about and enjoy natural daylight. The turkeys are slow-grown to natural maturity over 24 weeks and hung for at least 7 days once slaughtered. This results in meat that’s juicy and tender, with just the right amount of fat."
Organic Farming Magazine
We have been featured in Organic Farming magazine.
"One of the key challenges ahead for the farm is rising inflation and increased costs. The farm currently grows 97% of its animal feed, and every year work towards closing the gap towards self-sufficiency. They are hopeful and believe that ‘consumers will continue to look for ethical suppliers of meat’.
‘We will be here to show consumers that there is another way, that they can still enjoy meat with a clear conscience when it is sourced from farms that benefit our world.’"
A big thank you to The Independent for featuring our Organic Rose Veal Taster Box in their article "16 best meat boxes from ethical farms delivered to your door".
"The organic rose veal taster box is making veal ethical again. Coombe Farm Organic is making use of the male dairy calves from Coombe Farm’s long-standing organic dairy operation. Unlike the veal from the Nineties, these cows are free-range and fed a diet of whole organic milk grass and protein-rich cake, in line with organic standards."
We're thrilled to be featured in Evening Standard's article "Best Butcher Delivery Services in London and Beyond".

Thank you to Live Frankly for featuring us in their article "How to eat meat sustainably: the best cuts of beef, pork, chicken and lamb".

We're so excited that our Organic Duck & Trimmings Box has been featured in The Independent's round-up of "7 Best Meat Alternatives to Christmas Turkey".

Eve Kalinik 'Happy Gut Happy Mind'
In Happy Gut, Happy Mind, nutritional therapist Eve Kalinik draws on her clinical experience – recommending Coombe Farm Organic as a responsible supplier of organic meat
When choosing meat to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are a number of studies that suggest organic meat is a healthier option – higher in Omega 3, Amino Acids and Healthy Fats. There are also several other reasons why choosing organic meat is a good idea. They range from the contribution of organic farming to climate change, animal welfare and the use of pesticides and medicines used in the farming of conventional animals having a detrimental effect on our health.
Meat from butchers can be anything from farm assured meat through to the highest standard of meat, organic, with many other systems of rearing animals in between, such as outdoor reared, grass fed and free range. At Coombe Farm Organic all our meat is organic and butchered here on the farm. We approach butchery with a whole-carcass perspective. That means when our butchers start working, their intention is always to make the most of the carcass, from head to hoof. We don't believe in wasting anything, so they have to be sure that the cuts they produce make the best use of the animal and are what people want to buy.

Offal is often cast aside and not considered a ‘prime’ cut, however at Coombe Farm Organic we value every animal we rear so we're firm believers in eating head to hoof. This is how our grandparents would have eaten – making use of every part of the carcass. Offal cuts include liver, heart, kidneys, and tongue.
