Peelham Farm are located on a 680 ac organic, family-run farm close to the Berwickshire Coast in the Scottish Borders with exquisite panoramic views of the Tweed Valley, Cheviot Hills, Lammermuirs and the North Sea.
A business is headed by Chris and Denise Walton, their son Angus and his wife Helen as well as Amanda Cayley (partially retired).
They all contribute to an energy; a creative vision for farming; loving and trusting Peelham with compassion and care for the land, its livestock, its customers and its team. In practice there is overlap between the farm and the butchery with the partners sharing jobs and challenges and solutions.
In its organic on-farm butchery, smoker and charcuterie facility. The Peelham Family produces all the meat from its own livestock (grass reared beef, grass reared veal (ruby veal), lamb and mutton; free range pork) for its meat cuts and joints, and to make its organic charcuterie, salamis, sausages, burgers, bacon and hams which it supplies direct to you the consumer.
Committed to organic farming and food production principles, Peelham readily accept the need to have two of the most rigorous annual audits to which farming and food businesses are subject to in the UK, by the UK approved organic certification body the Soil Association; one for the farm and another for their on-farm butchery unit.
This in turn provides you the customer with confidence that every part of their farming and food business (ie one complete food chain) complies with the highest standards of animal welfare, soil management, environmental sustainability, environmental health, food quality and traceability.
