WINNER! Best Dorset Food Producer & Best Dorset Food Business for our range of organic meats at the Taste of Dorset Awards 2014!
We set up Angel Cottage Organics at Angel Cottage Farm in South Wiltshire in 2004. The success of our award winning chicken, our lamb and pork meant we soon grew out of our very small smallholding! In 2012 we moved Angel Cottage Organics to Haddon Copse Farm in the heart of Dorset’s Blackmore Vale. Our 30 acres of land is certified organic by the Soil Association, the largest and most stringent governing body for organic farming in the country.
We farm chickens for meat and eggs; a flock of Dorset Down sheep, chosen for their temperament, local character and quality of meat; traditional Oxford Sandy & Black pigs, Ruby Red Devon cattle and both turkeys and geese for the Christmas table.
Careful management of our environment is at the heart of everything we do: our animals enjoy the highest possible standards of care; we manage our hedgerows and pastures in ways which benefit wildlife; we are working hard to ensure that the fertility of our soil provides lush, nutrient rich grass on which our animals will thrive and we carefully restoring the pond which lies in the copse after which the farm is named.
We believe passionately in making the most of all that our farm offers and so as well as our delicious meat, we also sell beautiful lamb skin rugs and an original range of our own wool blankets and throws. During the winter of 2013 we planted over two acres of organic apple orchards which will, in time, allow us to press delicious juice, as well as making a home for our first bee hives and providing an ideal environment for our chickens.
We are delighted that the quality of our produce has been recognised with awards from Taste of the West, Great Taste and Taste of Dorset where we won Best Food Producer, Best Food Business and an award for Innovation in 2014.
We’d love you taste some of what Angel Cottage Organics has on offer…
