I recently discovered a farm shop that produces delicious traditional meats, right on my doorstep. Bridget B’s is at Sacombe Hill Farm, Watton at Stone, where there is an award-winning herd of pedigree Simmentals and Belted Galloways cattle. The farm also produces its own pork from pedigree British Lops, Saddlebacks and Gloucester Old Spots. 
Bridget Borlase, her partner James, family and team of experienced butchery staff run this remarkable enterprise and all their produce is either home reared or sourced from farms in the south east which offer an extensive range of beef, pork, lamb, poultry and game. Bridget B’s lamb comes from award-winning farmer Robert Law and the poultry and game are reared to a high free range standards. The farm shop sells poultry to your specifications and regularly stocks chicken, duck, guinea fowl, poisson, geese, turkey and eggs, while game includes pheasant, partridge, venison, rabbit, hare, wild duck and goose.

I decided to purchase a selection of meats and game for myself, which was very reasonably priced, and went home to cook up a storm in my kitchen. The starter I prepared was a warm partridge salad, which everyone enjoyed. This was followed by the most delicious rump steak I have eaten in ages. It is not surprising that Bridget B’s supplies many local hotels, restaurants, pubs and farm shops.

Go direct to the source, at Sacombe Hill Farm, Watton-at-Stone, SG14 3NL, where you can also see Bridget’s award-winning animals, or at the farm’s new butcher shop on the High street in Watton-at-Stone.
