Herring

A versatile and tasty oily fish

Coombe Farm Organic's herring are quick and easy to cook, packed full of flavour and a really great way of introducing oily fish into your diet. Living in vast shoals and identified by their gleaming scales and torpedo-shaped bodies, herrings have traditionally been a favourite on British tables. Their oily flesh lends itself to grilling, barbecuing, pan frying and oven baking. When salted and smoked, a herring becomes a delicious kipper.

Though sea fish can't be classed as organic, we still strive to ensure that the fish we sell meets the welfare and environmental standards we demand of all our products. That means we work with fishing partners who use sustainable practices – never targetting individual or scarce species, using nets that let small and immature fish escape and avoiding techniques that disturb the sea bed. Our fish comes from Devon's famous Brixham market and is caught mainly by day boats, so we're assured that it's super-fresh when landed and is frozen as quickly as possible.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday. Delivery charges for weekday delivery are £3.95 and Saturday delivery £6.95. You can also select pre-12 delivery option which is at a higher rate of £6.95 for weekday delivery and £8.95 for Saturday. If you spend over £80 you will receive free weekday delivery. The cut off period to get your order the next day is 12pm any order placed after that time will be delivered after 2 days. For example if you order after 12pm on Tuesday you will receive your box on Thursday.

  • Our products are sent to our customers frozen because when we started the business we looked into convenience for our customers. We found that sending the produce frozen meant that they could order for instance a month’s worth of produce and could go into their freezer until they are ready to use it. It also meant that there was less risk to the meat whilst been delivered as fresh meat can be delicate and risky.

  • All of our meat is butchered in house. In December 2018 our in-house butcher was built which means that we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

    You will find all the ingredients on the relevant product pages.

  • We have a dedicated page which explains all the different cuts and where they come from. Find out more here www.coombefarmorganic.co.uk

There are lots of Scandinavian, German and Scottish recipes that show off whole herring at their best. For a really simple supper, wipe your fish dry, brush it with a little dijon mustard then coat it with fine oatmeal seasoned with salt and pepper. Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan and when it starts to foam, add the herring, letting it brown and crisp on one side before turning it over. Keep the heat at a medium setting to let the fish cook through without scorching the oats. Serve with homemade tartare sauce spiked with cornichons and some warm potato salad.
