All of their traditional breed cattle and sheep are grass fed and naturally reared by father and son duo, Peter and Jake, so you are guaranteed ethical and tasty produce every time.

And what’s a Father’s Day Sunday lunch without crisp, fresh veg? Bradbury’s Farm Shop have an abundance of delicious, seasonal veggies which will perfectly complement your meat.
