Free range meat for sale
All our farm animals live outdoors for their whole lives, our cattle and sheep eat pasture grass or hay made from our pastures, our young ones stay with their mothers, taking milk, for as long as they both want. Taken together, these farming practices make a huge difference to the animal welfare and to the quality of the meat.
While not accredited (we are too small), we are proud to be members of the Pasture for Life Association
Importantly, while feeding corn and soya to ruminants is bad for the planet and less than great for the quality of the meat, pasture fed cattle and sheep can be part of the solution for climate change and soil health; the carbon cycle absorbs carbon into the soil, making it CO2 negative. They have evolved over millenia to convert a very low-protein, high fibre diet (grass) into high protein, good fats and highly nutritious meat. The nutritional value of pasture fed lamb & beef is discussed below
We have been selling our meat to visitors to the farm, locals and friends of Green Farm in south London. We are now able to deliver, chilled or frozen, by courier.

Buying and Reserving
Many people buy our meat because they see how our animals are reared with love and attention at Green Farm; others buy it because they have heard how good it is!
All meat can be collected from Green Farm or we can make arrangements for delivery or dispatch.

Grass Fed Lamb & Beef
What an animal eats has a direct affect on the quality, leanness and nutrition density of its meat. Cows & sheep are naturally grass-eating vegetarians, so all Green Farm sheep & cattle have enjoyed a completely natural diet from our traditional weald meadows (see “The Farm”); they eat our grasses and hay made from our grasses.
There are great health benefits to be gained from eating meat of this quality.
1. Extra Omega-3
Grass fed meat contains as much as three times more Omega-3 (good fats found in oily fish) than grain fed meat. This aids prevention of depression and cancer, whilst lowering blood pressure.
2. More CLA
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is 300%-400% higher in grass fed cuts. This is a nutrient associated with lowering heart disease and cancer risk, as well as reducing body fat and maintaining lean body mass.
3. Lots of vitamins
Grass fed meat is rich in Vitamin A and E, which help strengthen the immune system and maintain healthy skin and eyes. Vitamin E is four times higher in our meat than grain fed.
4. Healthy fats
Grass fed meat is lower in overall fat and in artery-clogging saturated fat than grain-fed. This helps reduce the risk of heart disease.
5. Added antioxidants
There are plenty of antioxidants to take advantage of too. Our meat is jam-packed with carotenoids such as beta-carotene which are sourced from the pigments in the greens that the animals eat.
Rearing our animals in this way may take a little longer but our approach is ethical and sustainable, and that’s important to us. We ensure our animals lead a happy life and that our meat is of the highest quality. Rotating the animals through different pastures means we’re able to preserve native biodiversity, improve soil fertility and eliminate the waste-management issues associated with confined cattle sheds
