Nene Park Trust is now offering you the chance to order lamb boxes containing lamb born and reared on land managed in a nature-friendly way including the Nene Park estate, as part of a new sustainable ‘Park to Plate’ initiative.
Park to Plate has grown out of the share farming partnership between Nene Park Trust and first generation farmers, brothers Craig and Ryan Baxter, following the three key principles of being kind to animals, kind to nature and kind to the environment. The partnership places the utmost importance on the welfare of its animals, ensuring they live happy, healthy lives. Farming in harmony with nature, livestock roam extensively on land that is managed for the longer-term benefit of the environment and wildlife. The farming system is entirely forage-based, meaning that livestock enjoy their favourite food: grass, herbs and wildflowers throughout their lives, minimising environmental impact and maximising benefits to nature.
More information about the partnership and farming principles can be found at https://www.nenepark.org.uk/park-to-plate
Boxes of Park to Plate lamb are now available to order from the Nene Park online shop. Customers can choose between small, medium or large boxes, containing a variety of cuts of lamb from joints and cutlets to mince and chops. The full contents of each box can be seen on the Nene Park website: https://www.nenepark.org.uk/pages/shop/department/lamb-boxes
Orders for the first run of lamb boxes must be placed by 24th November for our Christmas collection dates. Once your order has been placed, you will receive a confirmation email. Then come and pick up your box in person from the Lakeside Farm shop on Saturday 11 December or Sunday 12 December between 10am and 4pm. As the initiative grows, there will be further regular monthly collection dates.
Oliver Burke, Head of Operations at Nene Park Trust says, “This is such an exciting point in our Share Farming Partnership. Each stage of the farming cycle is managed locally. This means that the meat that comes from the Partnership is of the highest quality, using the highest animal welfare standards, and is hyper-local, as it makes its way from the Park to your plate.”
