Anna's Happy Trotters

The Longthorp family have been farming for four generations. Originally a purely arable farm growing crops, pigs were added to the mix some thirty years ago to make better use of the grain and straw they produce.

They set up breeding their pigs outside from the very beginning. Their pigs have been fully free range since 2007 and are outside from start to finish. There are only 1-2% pigs produced this way in the UK.

Anna’s Happy Trotters sell direct to butchers and farm shops to get closer to you.

The number one priority at Anna’s Happy Trotters is the welfare of their pigs and this is something they are very proud of.

All of our whole chickens are supplied by the Soanes family and their farming neighbours on farms in and around the Yorkshire Wolds.

They use four generations of arable farming expertise to grow the finest wheat to feed their chickens and use their animal husbandry experience to produce exceptionally tasty chicken.

Soanes Red Tractor accredited, Great Taste award-winning grain fed chickens are reared in light, airy barns with bales to perch on and toys to encourage their natural behaviour and to develop social interaction.

The result of this welfare rich life is award winning, firm-textured, tasty and succulent chicken that tastes like chicken used to.

Cowling Family

Our beef comes from the Cowling family farm, which is just 3 miles down the road and we have worked with them since we opened – a great partnership!

The Cowlings have an average of 300 head of stock across the year, a small suckler herd plus 280 acres of cereals, which is fed to the cattle.

We only sell meat from farmers we know and trust and we make regular trips to our farms to ensure they meet our high standards in husbandry, welfare and quality.

Liddle Family

The Liddle family, our lamb supplier, are proud fourth generation Yorkshire lamb farmers, and have lambing in their DNA. Dad, John has lived on the land in Stainburn his whole life and has taught children, Christina, William and Alice the family trade.

The flock are grass grazing, overlooking the stunning Yorkshire countryside and this woolly crew rear around 1600 lambs a year as a happy closed flock, which is much better for disease prevention. Keeping the flock 100% grass fed, instead of grains, is the most sustainable way of producing lambs.

Animal welfare is important to Fodder and to so many of our customers, which is why we are keen to support farmers like John and his family.

Herb Fed

Emma and Edward at Herb Fed recognise the importance husbandry plays in ensuring great tasting produce and knowing where your food comes from. Their turkeys are traditionally farmed, hand-fed and kept in small flocks so that they are truly free to forage for food and roam their Yorkshire pasture.

Their birds have something else rather special about them – their unique diet which includes over 10 varieties of fresh herbs.
