Jim and Helen Mackellar run Orchard View Farm, based in Little Meadle, just North of Princes Risborough. They have 27 acres of land & are big supporters of our traditional, rare-breed animals. In the clip here Helen talks us around the farm, the text below gives you more of Helen & Jim's Orchard View story.
Helen & Jim say: "When we bought the farm in 2009 it was just an overgrown, open field, but we had a vision... to produce, and sell, the best quality food at a sensible price.
We are both great admirers of animals and want to ensure this is demonstrated through the highest quality animal husbandry possible. Therefore we selected a number of rare breed pigs and sheep, this not only helps ensure the long term success of the breed, but also produces wonderful tasting meat.
Currently we have Large Black pigs (our award winning meat was Large Black), English Lop pigs, Jacob Sheep & in November '12, brought in our first herd of white fallow deer, very exciting!"
