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 but rest assured though, these cuts are only of the finest quality.
Native breeds of cattle are Hereford, Aberdeen Angus and Short Horns and our cattle are grass fed with their diet being 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 and during the summer they graze on open pasture local to the Farm Shop.

Dry Cured Bacon & Gammon – Both ‘Home-Produced’
Westlands exercises complete control over all bacon and gammon. Bacon which is produced on the premises using a traditional dry curing technique gives firm meaty rashers of bacon which is mild in flavour. It has 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. This 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 and our wide range which is on offer is available from mild to spicy which caters for all tastes. Gluten free sausages are also available on request.
