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 LAMB?​

All of our organic lamb comes from free-range animals born and reared in our lush, sustainable West Country pastures. Many lambs are grown quickly, fed on grain to ‘finish’ them at speed, we believe that it’s better for animals to grow at the rate nature intended and lead active lives.

Frequently asked questions

  • Our lambs are sourced from local farms and thrive on a diet of grass as well as clover and herbs.

  • Organic lamb has to be certified by an approved organic body to a number of set organic standards. These include the space that an organic lamb animal has to graze, the way that it’s food is grown, without the use of pesticides and or unapproved fertilisers. The standards for organic lamb also cover use of medicines and other points that improve the welfare and conditions throughout the life of the animal and on through slaughter and butchery.

  • Organic lamb has been reared in an organic, high-welfare system and this is at the heart of what we do at Coombe Farm Organic. We believe that the meat produced by active, healthy animals is tangibly better than that which comes from intensive systems. Many lambs are grown quickly, fed on grain to 'finish' them at speed. We believe that it's better for animals to grow at the rate nature intended and lead active lives. This means that we don't slaughter our lambs until they're at least eight months old which means your organic lamb will have well-developed muscle with a natural, palatable covering of sweet fat.
