Waste = Resource
If you shift your thinking to view waste as a resource, it can open up a myriad of opportunities. From the moss growing on the artificial tennis court, to the meat fat, to unwanted magazines, Wholly cow is experimenting and implementing new products using these components.

Re-connecting you with your
food and your farmers.

"It's not the Cow, It's the How"

While intensive farming for export has become the norm, we’ve chosen to create a different way. We have not had a manuscript to follow, this is all been based from a belief that there are always ways to make change + why not give things a go. By deliberately keeping our business small and local, we’re minimising our environmental impact through responsible land management, reduced transportation and increased sustainability whilst gaining a deep connection with our community who we gratefully serve.

Farming less intensively allows us to not only protect the land, but to improve it by building deep, healthy, resilient soil. Great soil produces great pasture, meaning our animals enjoy an all-natural, nutrient-rich diet that keeps them strong, healthy and happy. 

By being responsible for all stages of the process - from farm to abattoir to butchery to customer – and with a small, close-knit team of staff, we have a unique level of oversight that ensures the highest possible quality. 

We love the face-to-face relationship we have with our customers which allows us to share ideas and recipes and to receive direct feedback.

As a community, we’re all on this journey together and for us that means constantly learning and improving, with your help. We’ve been encouraged to discover that so many of our customers are just as passionate about sustainability as we are, and we always open to learning + trailing new ways to improve  + adopt clever ways of creatively reducing waste.

We run Pure Beef Cattle. Only grass fed with supplementary silage over winter if needed. Our lambs are a mix of Wiltshire, Dorset, Romney and Perrindale and all stock have ample space, shelter + low stress.

Wholly Cow Lamb is hung as a whole carcass form for 5 days before breaking it down into the desired meat cuts, alongside the Beef carcass which also hang in form for equal time before the butchers skillfully hand cut it. This allows for superior quality, tenderness + taste

Wholly Cow Meat Deliveries.

Taking so much care and responsibility in what we do lead us to take on personally delivering our meat ordered via the phone app. Orders are dispatched on selected  weekday mornings in our chilled truck , we offer to take back packaging if the customers would like. Our defined boundaries are as the map indicates. Our belief is that this farm produces food for people living in this area. No more.
