This is something I have wanted to embark on for some time, and bleated about it (excuse the pun) to all who would listen. Finally, it has become a reality!
I was brought up on a traditional mixed farm in Kenn, North Somerset, farming is in the blood! My dad milked 150 Friesian cows; consequently, I have always been aware of the dilemma over the fate of the male counterpart from a dairy enterprise. This paired with a long-established interest in goats which stemmed from my travels abroad, particularly in India, has lead me to here…
It was through just such contacts that lead me to find Dartland Farm owned by Jamie Beard. I am not entirely sure Jamie knew what he had let himself in for when I arrived, but I can say there has never been a dull moment since!
Jamie and I now run Just Kidding together and have made Dartland farm far more than a business, it is now our home.Jamie’s background in catering and in particular outside catering is invaluable. It also is very refreshing to work with a ‘non-farmer’ as you can view things with a different perspective!
There is no blueprint in the UK for Kid Meat production. We are creating an entirely new enterprise and developing our own systems that best suit our Billies and our ethos and look forward to exciting times as our future unfolds.
All our kids are reared to the highest standards without compromise. All our Kids are Billies from one dairy farm – they are a by-product from the production of Goat’s milk. We rear them in as natural an environment as possible on a grass-based diet.
Goat meat is th emost widely eaten meat in the world.
Our Kid Meat is fully traceable – as it is from our farm to your plate – all the meat we sell has been raised by us, so we know exactly how it has been reared from start to finish.
We are very proud that all our prime cuts have been awarded a Gold Star in The Great Taste Awards. We sell a variety of cuts and also offer diced, mince, burgers, sausages and offal from our Billy Kids.
