We have a farming background and we are proud to produce and source sustainable meat from farms that are working towards a better future.
The Story was founded in 2006 by school friends and fellow farmers Jim Twine and Luke Hasell. Their farms are just three miles apart in the gorgeous Chew Valley. The farms are fully organic and they aim to conserve and enhance natural habitat and follow wildlife friendly farming practices.
We are partnered with Farm Wilder and Yeo Valley and align ourselves with their standards.
“This has been my life long home and place of harmony. I feel so lucky to be able to live in the Chew Valley, grateful in the knowledge that the farm is also producing nourishing food, jobs that people love and improving wildlife and biodiversity in the land that surrounds us. Luke’s farm at Herons Green overlooks the beautiful Chew Valley Lake. His family have farmed in the area for over 100 years. In fact they used to farm two other farms Denny Farm and Spring Farm that are now underneath the lake! Luke’s Mother and Father, Sandra and Martin farmed at Herons Green for 30 years before Martin died in 2003 and Sandra in 2007. Luke took over the farm and switched to full organic beef production with a strong herd of North and South Devon.
All the farms are under Higher Level Stewardship which means at the heart of what we do is to manage the land to enhance habitats and achieve significant environmental benefits. By rearing healthy, contented animals on a natural pasture based diet we are able to build organic matter in our soil, improving the soil health and sequester carbon back into the ground.”
Ridiculously good meat, all high welfare, free range and at a price that’s hard to beat.
Some of the best meat I've had. Delivered a few days after ordering. Great quality and excellent portion sizes. Would highly recommend.
Great service amazing produce. I have stopped buying supermarket meat and I shop here once a week instead. Paul the Butcher knows his stuff.
