Our local suppliers

Farming has always been in the blood with The Cambridge Lamb Company being very much a family affair. From a young age, Toby helped out on his relatives' farms with rearing and producing livestock and spent many weekends working at the local butchers where his interest in the farm to fork system began. He then studied BSc (Hons) Agriculture at Harper Adams Agricultural College with a focus on livestock. The initial idea of selling high-quality lamb direct to the consumer occured to him in his final year and since then the company has continued to thrive in producing lamb that has come from happy and healthy livestock which are valued from farm to fork. 

Here at The Cambridge Lamb Company we take pride in moving towards a more healthy and sustainable food system and feel strongly about producing lamb in an ethical, environmentally-friendly and sustainable way. Our livestock is produced using smaller-scale methods with their welfare in mind and are reared on a diet which cuts down the environmental impact of transporting feed. The flock currently consists of 250 breeding ewes which are a mix of North Country Mules, Texel Mules, Pedigree Texels and Pedigree Suffolks. These are all grazed in and around Cambridge on high quality pasture. 

 

 

Free Range & Organic Free
Range

For the last nine years the firm has worked closely with
Belinda Nash of Woodbridge in a joint venture to produce the “Sutton Hoo” Free
Range chicken and more recently, the “Sutton Hoo” Organic Free Range chicken,
for those consumers looking for an alternative to the more intensively reared
bird. The difference between the Free Range and the Organic Free Range is
principally the birds’ diet. “Sutton Hoo” Organic Free Range chickens eat
organically grown food and live on organically registered grassland. (Organic
Certification is with the Organic Food Federation).The birds, derived from a
traditional breed of chicken, live in small groups in naturally lit and
ventilated mobile houses. They range freely over acres of pasture adjacent to
the Anglo-Saxon burial site of Sutton Hoo, hence the name. Their diet, mainly
wheat, does not contain antibiotics, growth promoters or drugs of any kind.
These birds taste like chicken! Their lifestyle, diet and a naturally slower
growing, old fashioned bird, combine to give the meat a wonderful texture and
delicious full flavour.

 
St.George's - High Welfare
The St
George's brand is dedicated to chicken produced to high welfare standards. The
St. George's brand is for consumers with the interest of animal welfare at heart
and a preference for antibiotic free produce.

 

The birds are reared in smaller flock sizes by individual farmers who are
passionate about the welfare of their animals. The birds not only have far more
space available to them than other more intensively reared birds but also enjoy
enriched conditions such as perching on straw bales and natural periods of
darkness.
