A family-run farm and traditional butchery
Farmer and Business Owner, Shon, was born on this farm, the very house he still lives in now. Having graduated from the Royal Berkshire College of Agriculture, Shon came back to Rother Valley to set up the first line of Aberdeen Angus beef to sell to Waitrose. In the early 2000s, the Spracklings started to convert to organic – to date, the biggest conversion the Soil Association has seen.
Our first meat box scheme then followed, and we began working with other local farms we trusted to source a variety of meats. The farm itself is still organic but we mostly sell free-range, high welfare meat, and organic chicken.
Rother Valley's approach to producing a great tasting product is to produce and source the finest, free range and ethically raised meat from Hampshire, West Sussex and surrounding counties.
Working with the Environment
Part of the remit of Rother Valley Farm is to help preserve the environment. Much of the Sprackling's grazing land is either an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) or an ESA (Environmentally Sensitive Area). Aberdeen Angus sucklers are now grazed on Thorney Island on the South Coast which will help preserve the environment and maintain it as a habitat for rare plants, wildlife and birds, such as the skylark and lapwing. To order some of the finest meat Hampshire can offer, visit our online store today.
Farm Gate Market
Rother Valley Farm is now running a socially distanced Farm Gate Farmers' Market every weekend, in West Sussex. Initially set up as a way to support the business, local enterprises, and the community during the COVID-19 lockdown, our successful market now offers a variety of products from local suppliers.
Organic and free-range meat is available via our online butchery store and in bulk as beef burgers, mince, and meatballs to schools and caterers.
