Established in 1960, Canfields Organic Farm sits in idyllic Sussex countryside at Rudgwick near Horsham. Here, mother and son Erica and Tim Bargman raise a small herd of Limousin, Belgian Blue and Aberdeen Angus cattle.
Fully organic since 1996, the farm is registered with the Organic Farmers and Growers, which means the Bargmans follow rigorous organic standards. As well as adhering to exceptionally high welfare values, the farm is untouched by artificial fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides. The animals are fed on certified organic feed and, from spring through to autumn, roam the pastures at Canfields Farm, eating grass and kicking their heels to their hearts content. And contented cows they certainly are!
High standards: farmers Tim and Erica Bargman with some of the herd
Exceptional: organic beef, four weeks hung for flavour and tenderness
Beef box: Tim with a typical selection of organic beef
Ethical: high welfare, organic rose veal escalope
Rudgwick organic beef and rose veal boxes
Organic beef boxes are a speciality at Canfields Farm, and contain a selection of cuts, including steak and mince.
The farm also offers terrific rose veal, and an organic veal box typically contains escalopes, diced veal and a joint.
It's best to contact Erica to enquire about buying from the farm, and you will be able to buy fresh or frozen depending on availability.
