Our Promise

All our animals are grazed on our local permanent meadow grass pasture, our 100% outdoor grass-reared lamb and beef develops its great taste, maturing slowly at its own pace. We produce a highly sustainable, low intensity product with the highest of animal welfare standards, all within one mile of our home on the coast. We have footpaths that run through our fields down to the rugged shores of Widemouth Bay. We believe being this close to the coast adds flavour and texture to our meat. We are forward thinking modern farmers underpinned by traditional values. This is mirrored in our butchering which is carried out in a traditional fashion by our artisan butcher just 9.8 miles from the farm giving us minimum food miles and allowing us to support local, keep quality to a premium and facilitate bespoke customer requirements. For all orders or questions please email dan@landmeetsea.co.uk or call 07958540788

Proud Producer of West Country Lamb

Our Animals

Producing Sheep is where we started. In 2015 we bought 34 Llyens a hardy coastal bred ewe that can be traced back to the early 1750s since then we have been selective breeding from this flock. To meet consumer demand we expanded in 2019 to include our Dexter Beef herd. The Dexter originated in Ireland, a heritage breed, descended from the black cattle of the early Celts. The quality of their meat is a direct correlation to the diverse coastal conservation type meadow pasture they graze. All of our meat is sold direct, this has allowed us to look in depth at what it is we are producing and what it takes to get it there. Enabling us to improve our meat from both the farming and consumer perspective.

Mutton, Full of essential nutrients, this patiently-reared meat has a fuller flavour than lamb. Most modern lamb comes from sheep four to six months old. But if the animal is given more time to range freely, all the while chomping away on tussocky bracken, heather, herbs and clovers, its meat develops an infinitely more interesting, fuller flavour that is exceptionally satisfying. The grain of the meat becomes finer too. We are specialists in rearing our Mutton to perfection. Available at Land Meet Sea, order from dan@landmeetsea.co.uk and try for yourself.

Hogget, Lamb with attitude while still tender, a hogget’s extra time on pasture allows it to develop a flavour that is richer and fuller than lamb’s but not as pronounced as older mutton’s. It is this satisfying depth of flavour, together with hogget’s texture, sweetness and versatility, that is helping hogget find new fans among chefs and home cooks.
