Wivenhoe Butchers believe farm animals that are raised humanely are healthier. Because of this, animals live longer, healthier and more active lives. High welfare farming can also be less damaging to the environment.
We buy from farmers who strive to improve animal welfare and keep animals in an environment where they can behave naturally. These farmers create conditions where animals are more able to express their natural behaviours, and move freely. They also adopt farming methods without close confinement of animals, which removes pain and distress.
