About The Farm
Blackwells Farm Produce is situated at Herons Farm, near Coggeshall in Essex, where my family has farmed since the 1930s. In all that time, we’ve been rearing poultry in the way people want — by traditional methods.
For many years we have concentrated on traditional farm fresh geese and turkeys for the Christmas market.
Rearing or Birds
Blackwell Farm Produce birds come from traditional slow-growing strains.
The chicks arrive on the farm at a week old and we rear them to full maturity.
Once they have put on their protective feathers they are free to roam out on the land and supplement their diet by foraging.
The birds are dry plucked and hung for at least 7 days to ensure a fuller flavour and better eating qualities.
The Blackwell Family
The Blackwell family has been farming in the Coggeshall area for four generations. My Grandfather and Father both farmed at Herons Farm and I have continued this tradition over the last 30 years.
With our farm shop we are committed to supporting local suppliers and over 90% of the produce we market is sourced within a 20-mile radius of the farm. We source our meat from local farmers known and trusted by ourselves for their good husbandry skills.
