Galileo Farm from Warwickshire started trading at London farmers' markets in late 2009. Their produce is such good quality that we never had any doubt they would be a resounding success with the market customers. And they were! They are a traditional mixed farm, with a wide variety of different livestock, including geese, turkeys, chickens, beef, lamb and pork - so very few bases missed! All the produce is raised on their farm by the Peckham family - Simon and Fabienne (and their children) - and the care they put into their production is clear from a brief chat with either of them. Rearing animals to the highest possible welfare standards is the absolute top priority of this farm.
Simon Hitches of Green Poultry has made a good name for himself as a farmer of high-welfare birds, since starting selling at London Farmers' Markets in 2006. His chickens, turkeys and geese are all slow-growing breeds which mean that the flavour is better, as well as the animal having a fuller, more natural life.
Grove Farm (J.L Bacon)
Jo Bonnar and John Bacon look after some very contented animals on land near Great Bentley in Essex. They have a herd of Hereford-cross beef cattle which graze over a wide area during the warmer months, close by to their sprightly flock of sheep. They have a closed herd and flock which means they are able to keep a very close eye on the way their animals are raised throughout their lives.

Paul farms on the Oxfordshire/Wiltshire borders, his ten acres the culmination of a dream to leave city life behind him. Starting off raising the best free range chickens he could find, Paul moved on to offer game he shoots himself.
