Daring to be different...............
Having already achieved an enviable reputation for our home produced meats and sausages, Hendra Farm are now branching out into something a little more unconventional, but a nonetheless very tasty change from the norm; our new range of delicious sausages now includes Alpaca and Rhea! Both meats are extremely low in fat and cholesterol, making them an ideal choice, not only for the health conscious, but everyone who loves their bangers! The alpaca is also available as mince, ideal for a low fat lasagne, ‘spag bol’ or shepherd’s pie, diced, perfect for stews and casseroles, steaks and burgers. As with all stock farming, there are inevitably excess males and animals unsuitable for breeding. Rearing these animals for meat makes sense both from an economical, and welfare point of view.
At Hendra Farm we have a very old fashioned attitude to animal husbandry, and this almost always pays great dividends when it comes to flavour and texture. Our native, exotic and rare breeds of livestock respond well to slow, traditional rearing. The Herdwick lamb and alpacas are grass fed, the rheas pick at grasses and insects, and the pork is from free-range pigs; they are not forced to grow quickly, but allowed to develop gently at their own pace.
Rabbit is also an extremely low fat meat, but very tasty! Our rabbits are reared in spacious pens, and enjoy ample fresh greens from our own garden.
The hens and ducks are free ranging, thus ensuring fabulous golden yolks!
