Our head-to-hoof philosophy means we believe in making the best use of every carcass that comes through our butchery. We know that's one of the qualities that you, our customers, appreciate. However, this ethos comes with some pretty serious challenges.
Carcass balancing is that strange turn of phrase used in the meat business when talking about the cuts of meat that outsell others. For example, we sell ribeye steaks and oxtail and a much faster rate than beef mince and silverside. Our challenge is always to keep enough of those fast-moving lines in stock, without overloading ourselves the slower moving cuts. It's about balance!
So here we are, transparently asking for your help. We have filled a box up with the slower moving, yet no less delicious organic meat that we need help to balance so that we can continue to keep a healthy stock of the things we know you all love to treat yourselves to.
We have significantly discounted the box - but not because the products are less valuable or delicious. Just because we need to keep them moving. This box may change from time to time.

At Coombe Farm Organic we like to follow some old-fashioned influences. We feed our ruminant animals a grass-based diet and we let all of our livestock range freely, with the opportunity to follow their natural behaviours and instincts. There's no rushing of growth to reach 'finishing' weight – we think Mother Nature knows what she's on about so our animals grow to maturity at their natural rate. That means they're strong and well-developed with robust immune systems. It also means they produce clean meat with great depth of flavour.
We deliver all around mainland Britain, excluding the Highlands and Islands. You will be able to choose your preferred delivery slot at checkout.

No. You can leave a message with your order telling us where you would like to have your box placed. It would be best placed somewhere cool or at least in the shade – especially during the hotter months of the year. Our products will stay at the same temperature for up to 40 hours, so just make sure that you can pick up your order within that time.
Our couriers will send you a text message or email, which ever you prefer, giving you an hour slot when your box will arrive. If that doesn’t suit you, some options will be provided to make your delivery more convenient.
Our products will stay frozen at the same temperature for up to 40 hours. Simply put them in your freezer after delivery or in your fridge if you want to defrost them and use them within the next few days.
At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.
We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.
Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.
