Daniel and Elaine were both brought up in local farming families and started their own poultry business at Sladesdown Farm in Landscove.
They originally started rearing turkeys for the Christmas period and the business has gone from strength to strength. "We are now producing turkeys all year round so customers can enjoy a fresh turkey any time of the year, along with chicken and duck" explains Daniel.
Their poultry is free range, and grown and finished on all natural feed with no added growth stimulants or antibiotics.
Daniel and Elaine have a modern processing facility on the farm, where all of their poultry is minimally processed with no preservatives or artificial basting ingredients. Having this facility on the farm is a huge plus, as so many farms have to transport their animals to be slaughtered which can put a great deal of stress on the animal.
Sladesdown Farm Poultry is oven ready with giblets included and is a huge hit with Pretty Local customers, there is a natural tenderness and juiciness in all the poultry.
The business is a true family affair with Daniel and Elaine's kids all taking an active role and helping with the daily chores.
