We specialise in rearing and supplying home grown and locally sourced native British animals with a known provenance. These form the majority of our sales, though some specially selected imported meats are used in order to meet demand. Rest assured though, these cuts are only of the finest quality.
Native breeds of cattle are Hereford, Aberdeen Angus and Short Horns. Our cattle are grass fed and this diet is supplemented with home grown barley. Grass in the form of silage or hay is fed during the winter months when cattle are housed in straw-bedded barns. During the summer they graze on open pasture.
Traditional Quality with known provenance.

Dry Cured Bacon & Gammon – Both ‘Home-Produced’
Westlands exercises complete control over all bacon and gammon. Bacon is produced on the premises using a traditional dry curing technique. This gives firm meaty rashers of bacon, mild in flavour with little shrinkage and none of the white ‘cook out’ often associated with mass-produced bacon. Gammons too are traditionally cured to give a beautifully tender product with a hint of sweetness which makes it ideal for gammon steaks, or joints for boiling or roasting.
Sausages and Burgers
All Westlands Farm Shop sausages and burgers are home-made, using prime shoulder meat. A wide range is available from mild to spicy catering for all tastes. Gluten free sausages are also available on request.
Westlands sausages are also ‘a hit’ with younger customers. Children, in particular appear to love the savoury pork burgers. They are mildly seasoned, succulent and nutritious. A real treat and mum and dad can be confident they are a quality product.
