Wonnacott Farm is small and traditional, run by the Yells family and tucked away in the Devon countryside (http://www.wonnacottfarm.co.uk/).
“We are best known for our traditional Norfolk Black Christmas free-range organic turkeys, but we also produce delicious organic beef from our small herd of South Devon and Aberdeen Angus cattle.
From our flock of Charollais, Roussin and Zwartbles sheep we produce organic lamb and mutton together with three natural colours of organic knitting wool.
We are passionate about producing healthy food in a way that is as sustainable as possible and we aim to reduce food miles by being as self-sufficient as we can. So this inspires us to grow organic oats and other cereals that our livestock enjoy.”
