Where to buy organic meat in the UK

Organic meat in the UK is available through big food retailers, like Waitrose, Ocado, Sainsbury and Tesco, as well as smaller retailers, like Better Food in Bristol and Whole Foods Market shops in London. There are also many organic meat farms you can turn to, where orders can be placed online or delivered to you on subscription.

What to look for when buying organic meat

In the UK, all organic food must be certified and appropriately labelled. UK approved controlled bodies can be found on the government website.

The Soil Association is Rhug’s organic certifying body and is the stamp that gives us and other organic producers their ‘Rolls Royce’ status. The Soil Association certification is proof that its members supply security of provenance to all customers.

Rhug Farm has been organic for over 20 years. In 2002 we began retailing from the farm gate selling takeaway burgers and hot pots and fresh farm meat from a butchers counter. This has developed into the now thriving award-winning Farm Shop, cafe, and Take away where meat from the farm can be showcased.

Lord Newborough has always believed in sustainable farming and organic food as providing a better and healthier option as well as having a genuine concern for animal welfare.
