Flock and Herd: Because it Matters

At the heart of everything they do is good animal husbandry and welfare.

Many of the rare and heritage breed animals are reared using traditional free range farming methods.

Their butchers regularly visit all suppliers, who are based in and around the Home Counties. As a result of the close relationships, many of the products are exclusive to Flock and Herd.

Their wild game always comes from licensed suppliers.

The biggest nutritional difference between organic meat and non-organic is that organic meat contains around 50% more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. Plus, it’s found to have slightly lower concentrations of two saturated fats linked to heart disease.
