Stiperden House Farm is a traditional hill farm consisting of 80 acres of moorland and pasture.
Whilst not registered as organic we do not use pesticides or herbicides. Vaccines and medicines are only ever used to maintain high standards of animal welfare
So Who Are We and What Do We Do?
We are Richard and Jacqui Pilka we have two small children and are working towards re-establishing the farmstead we bought in 2007 as a viable smallholding business.
- To produce high quality free range meat from rare breed animals with maximum focus on animal welfare.
- To sell produce directly to the customer maximizing the field to fork methodology and accountability.
- To produce as much of our energy from the farm as possible using small scale wind turbines, solar and hydro-electricity.
Since buying the farm we have established our own herd of pigs and a small flock of sheep. We have kept chickens, ducks and turkeys and we have also built up a small herd of Highland cattle.
All our animals are free range and live a natural a life. They are allowed to reach maturity at their own pace and their welfare is extremely important to us. We believe that this approach produces high quality meat that we are proud to offer for sale.
Since starting to provide meat to friends and family, we have continued to expand and are now able to sell direct to the public. Our emphasis is on meat reared to high welfare standards, with accountability and traceability.
