Higher Hacknell Farm produce excellent meat. Jo and Tim have created a wonderful environment for their livestock and the farm itself is the most organised, clean and tidy farm I have been to. Their new season lamb is wonderful and is on my menu here at River Cottage every week. I am proud to have them as a supplier.
Joe Draper, the head chef at the River Cottage Canteen in Plymouth
When raw the steak smells very nice and well-matured. Cooked it smells beautifully beefy! It looks very appealing, the fat is lovely and creamy, the flesh is a good colour and the skin has been nicely removed from the bone... Its texture is spot-on; soft, juicy and a pleasure to eat.

Our meat is reared to the highest animal welfare standards
We know that looking after our animals with the greatest care and respect is as important to you as it is to us. Our grass fed animals have a truly free-range life with plenty of fresh air and green fields to grow and thrive.
Certified Organic and inspected by the Soil Association
Organic farming standards guarantee that animals are reared without the routine use of drugs or antibiotics. G.M ingredients and artificial preservatives are banned under organic rules. Organic agriculture is better for the environment and protects wildlife without using pesticides and chemicals.
