Perridge Farm

"Perridge Farm is one of the loveliest places in England - the French would describe it as a 'terroir superb' - a place ideally suited to its purpose - that of producing Britain’s finest organic beef."
- The Times

Set across 450 acres of organic grassland, our family farm spans over 8 decades of management. Each of the small 90 fields are surrounded by ancient dense hedgerow,
enhancing the biodiversity encouraged by our organic farming methods creating havens for wildlife and fauna. Cattle roam and graze the herb rich pastures; cuts of grass are taken periodically from early spring until autumn to ensile as winter feed. Spring, summer, autumn and winter seasons pass leisurely from one to the other, and our farm works in harmony with nature.

With the continued interest in grass fed organic beef and milk produced from grass fed cows, Brown Cow Organics have always maintained integrity of farming practise to ensure that not only are all our animals grass fed, but importantly that the soil is analysed for its physical and chemical imbalance and any such defects addressed with organic inputs. We aim for a balance of minerals, trace elements and bacterial activity (the good stuff).

We aim for a balance of minerals, trace elements and bacterial activity (the good stuff).

The grass grown from the soil is then analysed for its full nutritional content to ensure that the grass that our animals eat is as good as it should be. We did this for many years before realising we had not analysed the actual meat and milk produced from this pioneering approach to farming. So, we sent samples to a world-renowned laboratory to analyse our produce and to compare it directly to other leading brands. The results of which launched the brand of Brown Cow Organics.

The dairy herd are milked only once a day, being brought in from their pasture by our loyal dog Alfie. The milking takes place first thing in the morning so the cows can go out to grass, maximising their day of grazing and lying around enjoying the view.

As the herd are not pushed beyond their natural ability to produce milk the benefits are to all; long healthy living cows with little need for inputs to keep them that way. For a cow to produce milk she has to give birth each year; since the early days of our farming generations these baby claves are reared to full maturity either into the herd or as beef.
