After growing up with farming, studying agriculture at University, Janie set out to farm animals in a natural and holistic way. Using a combination of methods new and old, she believes that better tasting meat can be produced on a sustainable and regenerative basis with added benefits to the environment, the soil and the animals themselves.
We want you to taste the difference. The essential elements for farming cattle at Luckington Farm are ensuring they are I 00% grass-fed and get to eat fresh pasture every day ("mob grazed").
They are native breeds, locally bred, reared, slaughtered and consumed. They farm organically and use no chemicals, but more than that aim for a very low input system. They aspire to have a pasture that has a diverse variety of grasses, legumes, herbs and wildflowers that are allowed to flourish which provides a healthier diet for the animals, which is super important for sequestering carbon from the atmosphere and supports a vibrant ecosystem of wildlife. All of this goes hand in hand with improving the quality of the soil every year.
