We are the Aidley family and we grow nutrient dense Real Food, using natural grass fed, pasture based, regenerative and organic methods. We are passionate about re-connecting farmers and consumers whilst doing the best we can for the animals and land in our care. Healthy soil means healthy plants, healthy animals and healthy people.
We strive to produce naturally healthy food with nutritional integrity, nothing added in and nothing taken out. And we produce it in a way that works with nature as much as possible, restores our environment and builds soil.
Modern science is confirming time and time again the age-old knowledge that good soil management is so important, nourishing the vast crowd of tiny and microscopic creatures beneath our feet - the soil microbiome. In tandem with this, it's becoming well known that our own health is massively influenced by the human microbiome - particularly in the gut. We believe the health of soils, plants, animals and humans are closely linked and REAL FOOD is the key.
Please bear in mind that some of our products are not available year-round - because we work with the seasons.
We carry out no routine cultivation or cropping, and we don't spray chemicals on the land. Our farm is managed under organic guidelines, and we are currently in the 'conversion process' before we are allowed to label our goods as fully organic.
Our farming is influenced by holistic management principles and farm scale permaculture. Our vision is for the farm to become a multi-level perennial polyculture, meaning diverse pastures interspersed with trees, hedges, woodland and ponds.
Our beef cattle are finished on a 100% grass & pasture diet here at Hill Farm, grazing our diverse grass, clover and herb rich pastures. Grass fed beef is increasingly popular to due its desirable Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratios, and elevated levels of beta-carotene, conjugated linoleic acid, vitamin E and many others. It's increasingly being accepted as the King of meats!
We truly believe that correctly managed, grass/pasture fed beef is among the most nutritious and climate-friendly foods you can eat. We aim to replicate the effect of the large herds of wild ruminants which have roamed in every continent for millenia, evolving alongside pasture plants and interspersed woody species creating a patchwork of wood and pasture. This creates a diversity of habitats and maximises carbon drawdown into the soil, restoring both the carbon cycle and the water cycle. Food production doesn't have to be extractive.
Most of our beef animals come from the Hereford breed, a heritage bloodline renowned for its meat quality on a foraging system. And it does taste pretty good, we have to say!
