From our farm to your door
Sustainable, rare breed meat, chosen by chefs
180-Day Cornish Celtic® Cockerel & Hen
These chickens are allowed 180 days of a happy, free-ranging life to reach full maturity. During this time, they are developing stronger bones, bigger muscles, thicker skin, and better fat content. All of this means firmer and more structured meat with an extraordinary amount of flavour.
Healthy, happy, more mature animals taste better
We are all about flavour. Our efforts to rear our livestock in a manner that results in the best possible flavour are uncompromising. For this reason, for the past decade, we have been the chosen meat supplier to many of the UK's top chefs and restaurants.
Our exceptional meat is the result of dedication to the lives of our animals, a genuine care for the land, and the constant pursuit to improve biodiversity. The better our animals live, the better they taste.
We slowly mature rare and traditional breeds on the same natural diet that their wild ancestors would have known.
We strive to increase wild animal, bird and insect life by planting trees and hedgerows and encouraging the growth of wildflowers and native grasses. It is a rich and varied diet that makes our beef, pork, lamb and chicken a truly unique flavour.
Beef sold under the Aurox® label represents our meticulous selection of Britain’s best beef, from slowly matured rare of traditional native breeds.
Originally a cross between a Tamworth and a Eurasian Wild Boar, these pigs take nearly a year to reach full maturity; the result is exceptionally flavoursome pork.
One of the rarest and most ancient breeds of British sheep, which mature so slowly that they require two full summers on grass; the depth of flavour is quite incredible.
Chickens sold under this label are grown to an incredibly high standard of welfare; totally free-ranging and allowed to graze open pastures for insects to supplement their soy-free diet.
Thank you James - we really enjoyed the meat box - some has gone in the freezer but the mince and steak were delicious - will definitley be ordering again!
The bavette steak was very tasty. Just like a French thin steak you might get on a skiing holiday.
Meat of the highest quality and flavour. Thoroughly tasty!
After discovering the season for this glorious meat was nearly over, I bought half a hoggett for the freezer. It simply does not disappoint! We had a birthday celebration and I slow roasted a whole shoulder. The flavour and texture were wonderful. I know that the rest will be just as good. Highly recommended.
We have so far eaten the mince and sirloin. Both were excellent with a deep taste.
The beef had great flavour and texture . Obviously the product of excellent care in its growing.
Best steaks we have had in a long time
Farm to doorstep. Great idea
Wonderful steak. Absolutely delicious. You really can tell the difference, especially using your mince. Loved chatting to you and sorting out the amounts we need for family locking down together. Thank you for taking it all on board!
Have not as yet eaten any of my hogget order due to nobody being allowed in the house. I really look forward to what will be a tremendous culinary experience when things ease up.
Have just had our White Park slow roast. It has left such a contented feeling inside. When i opened the bag it actually smelt of beef and after cooking for 5 hours, carved beautifully and every morsel was to die for. Amazing gravy made from the juices. Personal communication with James is so helpful and he strives to meet our every need. Thank you Lions Hill Farm.
Have been making my husband beef olive and cottage pie with your exceptional mince. " THIS MINCE IS LOVELY TODAY" he says. Taste is amazing, servise exceptional.
Have just eaten the hogget shoulder which i put on 200 for 15 minutes then 100 for 4 hours. Finished off with 15 minutes at 200. On a bed of red cabbage carrot garlic and onions. Out of this world taste and texture. My husband is not a fan of lamb but after the first bite he was telling me how lovely it was. I had a really good nights sleep afterwards, with an amazing feeling of old time satisfaction.
Have left it until now to review, as we've only just cooked the hen which we'd had in the freezer since eating the cockerel for Christmas dinner. I'd been a little concerned that they were arriving a week before Christmas Day, but James's instructions re storing/defrosting etc all worked perfectly (helpful that chickens don't need as much freezer space as turkey!) As expected, the meat on both birds was slightly tougher than a 'normal' chicken but so superior in flavour. Absolutely delicious - a real treat! They made wonderful stock too. Giblets only with the cockerel though - what happens to the hen's?
Hogget cutlets were amazing. A propper taste that i remember from childhood and hadn't tasted for years. It has left me hungry for hogget and am very much looking forward to the joint we are having this Sunday. James has been extremely helpful, packing was great. I look forward to trying other products. All very reasonably priced for the quality of enjoyment. Thank you
