ABOUT US

Picks Organic Farm is an organic farm based in the heart of rural Leicestershire. We are a family run farm that has been producing the highest quality organic meat since 1999 and strongly believe in the principles of organic farming. .

WHY EAT ORGANIC?

Put simply Organic Farming is farming the old fashioned way; farming without using artificial chemicals and pesticides.
It means working with nature as oppose to destroying it. All of our meat raised is 100% organic, meaning they are free-range (so spend their days roaming around the fields), are not mass treated with antibiotics or chemicals and eat a healthy natural grass-fed organic diet. We follow the strict guidelines and code of practice set down by the Organic Food Federation, where animal welfare is paramount and at the front of the agenda. Organic food is not only better for you, it is better for the environment and better for the animal.

OUR ANIMALS

Our animals are reared naturally and fed a natural diet. Our beef and lamb are both completely grass-fed and the animals grow as nature intended. This natural diet ensures the full, rich flavour of meat as it used to be before the introduction of intensive farming techniques. Animals that eat naturally occurring, nutrient rich foods, and are treated well during their lives are more flavourful than industrial meats from supermarkets. We farm Gloucester Old-Spot Pork, Dexter Beef, North Country Sheep, Ross Cob and Hubbards Fattening Birds, Laying Hens and Ducks, as well as a selection of Christmas Poultry and Seasonal Game. All which are sold locally at our farm shop and butchers shop or directly from us at a farmers market.

ORGANIC BUTCHERS SHOP

Our quaint butchers shop is the epicentre of our farm shop and the meat is the heart and soul of our business. The meat we sell is lovingly hand-reared to the highest organic standards, where animal welfare is paramount. We have two full time butchers in our butchery who have many years’ butchery experience and can offer advice on cuts, and prepare meat to customers exact specifications. As they work with the whole animal they can offer cooking advice and find the perfect cut for your price range or recipe, enabling you to buy the exact amount needed, as oppose to shrink wrapped packages at a set weight. We also sell our organic meat at a host of farmers markets in and around the Midlands and London.

PICKS ORGANIC TEA SHOP

The Old Hamilton Tearoom at Pick’s Organic Farm is a bright and airy place with beautiful views of the paddocks. You can sip tea and sample a selection of our homemade miniature cakes, or enjoy a delicious cream tea with homemade scones, clotted cream and homemade jam. We also offer an option to pre-book our afternoon tea and indulge in tasty sandwiches, scones with cream and jam and a selection of miniature cakes, all home made.

We offer gift vouchers for afternoon tea which make a lovely present or we can even prepare an afternoon tea for you to collect. We can accommodate up to 40 people for afternoon tea during the warmer months and 34 in the colder months – we have to allow for the wood burning stove when it gets a bit colder. Our staff are friendly and keen to make your visit a really pleasant experience.

 

The Tea Shop is open daily from 10.30am to 3.30pm.
