All our produce is 100% organic however not all our animals are reared on Coombe Farm due to space. Farming the vast range of animals, we sell on the website would be very difficult and would require a lot more land than we have. Therefore, we use organically certified farms that are specialists in farming the animals they do. Our beef, lamb and pork are reared on our farm at HQ, our poultry is reared on an organic farm a few miles away, our venison is based in Devon. Our pigs have only recently been added to Coombe Farm so we are still working with our original family farm in Langport, 20 minutes away until our farm is producing a continuous number of pigs for our customers. Our salmon is slightly different, we use Glenarm for our smoked salmon who are based in Ireland and JCS Salmon Specialist based in Scotland, the reason we use these two companies is that they rear the highest quality organic salmon and we want our customers to have the best.
Our lamb is 100% grass-fed. Our beef is 85% grass-fed but throughout their lives, they are supplemented with 15% grain, however, it isn’t a processed grain, it is made up of our homegrown organic crops. The reason we feed our beef our homegrown grain is for welfare reasons because throughout their life they may need a little helping hand. The regulations towards calling the animals ‘grass-fed’ is that they must be 85% or more, as our beef is we call them grass-fed. In regards to our pork, they are all fed with organic grain, pigs will rummage amongst the ground however they will not consume enough grass to maintain a suitable diet, this is also the same for the poultry. Our venison is fed majority grass however where they are reared spelt is produced so they are fed the husk that is taken off the pearled spelt because there is nutritional value in it otherwise it would go to waste.
Coombe Farm Organic is certified by the Soil Association www.soilassociation.org, the UK's largest organic certification body. We are not only proud of this but we want to go further. At Coombe Farm, we not only believe in sustainability - we live it.
Organic food is food which is produced using environmentally and animal-friendly farming methods on organic farms. These methods are legally defined and any food sold as 'organic' must be strictly regulated.
Organic farming recognises the direct connection between our health and how the food we eat is produced. Artificial fertilisers are banned and farmers develop fertile soil by rotating crops and using compost, manure and clover.
Organic animals enjoy the very highest welfare standards – they are truly free-range and have plenty of space and access to fields. For more information please have a look at www.soilassociation.org/whatisorganic.
