WHAT WE DO
All our food comes straight from our farm to your fork: our meat and poultry, fruit and vegetables from our market garden, bread from our bakery, and cheese, milk and yoghurt from our creamery. To make our soups and meals, our chefs use only the freshest ingredients, combined with simple techniques to bring out the natural flavours of our seasonal, organic produce.
When we don’t make a product on our farm, we source from artisan suppliers who share our commitment to quality and sustainability, and who produce items to our recipes. We are fully transparent in that you can visit our farm to see for yourself how our animals are kept, where our vegetables are grown and how our food is produced.
Since we started this journey, we have been lucky enough to be recognised for the love we put in to what we do. In the last few years alone, we have won over 100 national and international awards from all areas of the farm.
We embraced organic farming over 35 years ago and we continue to be dedicated to growing, producing and cooking seasonal, organic food.
We believe that when people eat natural, organic food, they can taste the difference. It’s a chain of goodness that begins with healthy soil, and finishes with healthy animals and people.
All Daylesford products have full organic certification from the Soil Association.
Respect and nourish the land, and it will nourish you.
Daylesford is proud to be one of the most sustainable farms in the UK. We want to farm, grow, produce and sell food according to sustainable principles, and in harmony with the environment. A farm in perfect harmony requires few artificial external inputs, yet still yields healthy harvests of meat, dairy, vegetables and fruit, year after year.
We farm towards 100% self-sufficiency. We already strive to be truly sustainable by using no pesticides or fertilisers, managing field rotations, creating wildlife habitats, harvesting rainwater, installing solar panels and by practicing animal husbandry of the highest welfare standards. We feed all our ruminant livestock (lamb, dairy, beef and venison) with
a GM-free, organic, forage-based diet grown on our own farms. Since 2009 we have been committed to year-on-year reductions in fossil fuel usage and carbon emissions. We’re also on the way to sending nothing to landfill.
In the last few years alone we have won over 100 national and international awards from all areas of our farm.
These include the Soil Association Organic Food Awards, British Cheese Awards, World Cheese Awards, British Cookery School Awards and the Great Taste Awards.
We’ve been named the most sustainable restaurant in the UK by the Sustainable Restaurant Association, as well as the most sustainable farm in the UK.
