Producer Spotlight: Baylham House Farm

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.







Baylham House Farm is located just outside of Ipswich and specialises in the farming of rare breed animals. Owned by Richard Storer since 1985, the farm is run by Richard and his son Neil, along with a small team of staff and a dedicated group of volunteers.







The premise of the farm is to protect several native breeds which are under threat due to the pressures of modern farming.  All of the animals raised at Baylham Farm live in stress free conditions with plenty of space to roam, which produces fantastic quality pork, lamb and beef.

Bridie 2









As well as being a working farm, dedicated to the preservation of traditional British livestock, Baylham House is a very popular visitor attraction.  The farm is a fantastic educational resource centred around farming and rare breed conservation.  Visitors have the opportunity to get up close and feed all of the Baylham animals, from chickens to lambs, cattle, goats, pigs and much more.  There are special events dedicated to the annual farming calendar, including lambing where visitors can cuddle the newborn lambs, to shearing with the Festival of the Naked Sheep.  Visitors can also relax in the café with home made light lunches and cakes, while the children wear themselves out on the play area.

Producer Spotlight: Breckland Larder

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Breckland Larder Logo






Breckland Larder is owned by Paul and Fiona Sleightholme, who have been farming together in the Suffolk and Norfolk area for 20 years.  Farming is very much in the family with both Fiona and Paul coming from livestock farming backgrounds, and all six of their children having an active interest in farming.

Breckland Larder started off with four hundred sheep, twenty cattle and a few pigs.  Situated with grazing on the stunning Breckland heathland on the Suffolk and Norfolk border, the area is also home to a diverse selection of plants and wildlife which the Breckland Larder animals graze alongside.

Breckland Larder produce a great variety of rare breed sheep including Jacob, Hebridean, Manx Loaghtan, Herdwick, Soay, Shetland and several more, with over 2000 breeding ewes.  All of the sheep are kept outdoors on grass to produce fantastic lamb, hogget and mutton.

Cattle on Heathland







Breckland Larder also produce a great variety of cattle including Dexter, Longhorn, Belted Galloway and Highland, with a herd of between five and six hundred.  All of the cattle are kept outside for the majority of the year on grass, being fed on locally grown vegetables during the winter months.  Calving takes place both in the spring and the autumn, with the calves remaining at Breckland Larder until close to 30 months to ensure the beef has the maximum flavour.








Also found on the Breckland heathland are Boer goats, bred both for meat and milk.  They enjoy exploring the gorse bushes and shrubs on the heathland with kids joining them in the spring.  Alongside the goats, Breckland Larder also has a variety of rare breed pigs.  Paul and Fiona have a great commitment to the conservation of rare breed animals and there are plans to start a herd of Large White and Welsh pigs, both of which are listed on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust at risk group.
