Savin Hill Farm & Butchery - Latest News

Latest news stories from Savin Hill

We started farming traditional breeds at Savin Hill back in October 1998, when we took stock of three British White maiden heifers. They were the start of what has since been a passionate devotion to preserving some of Britain's traditional breeds monitored by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

Savin Hill is a small farm based in the beautiful Lyth Valley, South Lakeland. We began with four acres of low lying land in 1997. The last eleven years has seen us increase herd numbers, buildings and grazing land within the Lyth Valley,  together with building our own on-site butchery. All these elements have given us the flexibility to cope with maintaining highest welfare and quality standards through to continuity of supply with our increasing direct customer base.
