WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result. 

WHAT IS ORGANIC GAME?​

It’s no secret that despite living a free-range life, game is reared primarily for sport. In the west country, we are surrounded by estates that do this and so manage the eco systems that support a bounty of flora and fauna in the area. Our game is harvested by people licensed to do so and only during ‘designated’ seasons.

  • 1x bay leaf
  • pinch of pink himalayan salt
  • pinch of pepper

Frequently asked questions

  • Typically, game meat is the flesh of land mammals or birds, that are hunted for food instead of being raised on a farm. Game meat includes, ‘small birds’ such as quail, ‘winged game’ such as woodcock, grouse or partridge, ‘ground game’ such as rabbit or hare and ‘large game’ such as venison.

  • Most game is only available during the autumn and winter, during the shooting season, this is followed by the ‘closed season’ when shooting is no longer allowed, this is essential for protecting animals when they are breeding and rearing their young. However, some game does not have a ‘closed season’, these game meats include rabbit and pigeon. At Coombe Farm Organic we freeze our game meat, making it available to you the consumer all year round.

  • Game meat is one of the healthiest meats available, it is very low in fat and cholesterol, generally higher in protein, and very lean as wild game are able to walk and roam freely, therefore not storing much fat.
