Farm Wilder Lamb Devon

Farm Wilder is a social enterprise that promotes food from Britain’s most wildlife friendly and sustainable farms, with the aim of reversing the decline of animals like cuckoos, hedgehogs, bees and butterflies, which have crashed by as much as 95% over the last 60 years.  

This lamb comes from Devon farms with Cuckoos, a bird that was once common and now needs help to recover.  The farmers work with conservation charities including RSPB, FWAG and Devon Wildlife Trust to enhance the habitat Cuckoos and other endangered species need. Read more about this in Tim's blog.

Cuckoo lamb is sustainably reared - our farms are either 100% Pasture for Life certified or are in transition to it. This brilliant system results in more nutritious meat produced with a lower carbon footprint, healthier soils, higher biodiversity and no need for artificial fertilizers.  Native sheep breeds are used including Scottish Blackface, Welsh Black Mountain and Dorset.  They thrive on the poorer pastures that are better for wildlife, and they produce a tastier meat than modern fast-growing breeds. The majority of their lives are spent lightly grazing the moorland pastures and upland meadows that are home to meadow pipits, in whose nests Cuckoos lay their eggs.  For the last few months some move to lowland finishing farms with a diverse range of herbs and grasses.

We asked Tim Martin, former BBC Wildlife Executive Producer, and the founder of Farm Wilder to tell us more about the provenance of the Farm Wilder Lamb: “Our meat is lovingly reared in Devon to world-leading sustainability standards, which means that farmers work in harmony with the land. It’s better for you, better for wildlife and better for the Planet.”
