Hello, my name’s Will Pearson, here you can find out a little bit more about our farm, our story, and most importantly, our livestock..
Dunwood Farm is a 170 acre all grass farm set in the heart of the picturesque Staffordshire Moorlands, on the edge of the Peak District. Our field sizes are small, lapped with wildlife rich hedgerows or stone walls, and most of our land is set to permanent pasture. Our family has farmed here since 1973, and in that time we’ve come to learn that rare and native cattle breeds suit our grass based system above all other breeds. Today we farm small herds of Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and Longhorn cattle, which complement our traditional farming methods, and produce exceptional tasting beef.
We have sold our home produced beef and pork online and to local customers for a number of years, and we adore hearing the incredibly positive feedback about our meat. We spent the early part of 2015 seeking out extraordinary farmers of poultry, pork, lamb and beef to complement our own range of produce, launching the new look Dunwood in October 2015.
We passionately believe that rare and native breeds, farmed with traditional, high welfare methods produce the finest tasting meat, and because we either produce the meat on our own family farm or source from a farmer we personally know, we have absolute traceability for everything we sell.
Everything that we sell is carefully hand cut to order in our own butchery premises, packaged in environmentally sustainable sheep’s wool insulated boxes, and delivered directly to our wonderful customers.
The modern, compassionate meat eater needs to purchase their meat from someone they trust, someone they can build a lasting relationship with, an expert in their field who can provide genuine provenance; that person is us, welcome to Dunwood.
