Our farmhouse pork sausages are from rare breed Saddleback and Gloucester Old Spot outdoor reared pigs that have taken longer to mature carrying the essential extra fat that produces really succulent, flavoursome meat. You will find our free-range, hand-butchered pork will be deeper pink in colour than the intensively reared alternatives and because our pigs have been reared naturally and hung for longer, the skin provides the most wonderful, crispy crackling. Our pork is sourced from small, local, family run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire with the highest standards of animal welfare.
We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the farmer, the animal, the local ecology, and for you, producing exceptionally tasting, ethically reared meat that you can trust completely.
We founded the Dorset Meat Company to provide you with the finest grass-fed, outdoor-reared meat, produced sustainably and in harmony with nature. We care about traditional British farming which is why we work with 20 small, family-run farms based in Dorset and Wiltshire that produce really wholesome, natural meat. We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the farmer, the animal, the local ecology, and for you, producing exceptionally tasting, ethically reared meat that you can trust completely.

At the Dorset Meat Company, we work with 20 small, family-run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire that all work to produce ethically reared, nutritious meat, in a natural growing environment, in harmony with nature. Animals that have been allowed to grow at a natural pace and have not been rushed.
100% Grass Fed
Our ruminant animals enjoy a diet of 100%, pure, natural grass. Which is all they ever eat.
Our local countryside is rich in grassland. “Partly real, partly dream country” is how Thomas Hardy described Dorset. Over 40% of the county is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the steep ridges and chalk valleys lending the landscape a rugged beauty. Dotted around the Blackmore Vale, small farms raise traditional cattle breeds like Herefords, Aberdeen Angus and Ruby Reds. The areas of clay soil are rich in grass, wildflowers, clover and legumes, the principal food source for sheep and cattle for centuries. It is these natural environments, rich in essential vitamins and minerals, that help to support a wide range of wildlife and insects as an essential element of a vibrant, thriving ecology.
Nature in balance.
