Eversfield Organic is the lifelong dream of Mark and Emily Bury along with Mark’s daughter, Anna, and son, Hamish. Mark always strived to provide his family with the finest quality food produced in an honest and natural way with animal welfare at its heart, and wanted this to be available to all.
Kick-starting it all, Mark bought the farm 15 years ago and spent two back-breaking years planting over 30,000 trees, reinstating miles of hedgerows and laying fencing to nurture the land back to its natural state after years of intensive farming.
Once the trees had taken root and the natural flora was flourishing once again, wildlife in the area began to return and the soil was rejuvenated. After months of toil, the farm was finally granted organic status in 2004.
Working with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, Mark began rearing his own herd of native Aberdeen Angus cattle fed on a 100% pasture diet. This means animals are only ever fed grasses and wildflower – never grain. Mark also introduced a flock of grass fed sheep to keep the meadows mown, and organic pigs were kept busy clearing scrub from the farm’s woodland.
From 2004, Eversfield Organic began their organic box scheme – offering fresh, Soil Association organic certified meat for delivery to people’s homes – from their own grass fed organic beef and lamb, to organic pork, poultry and wild game.
Gradually, organic dairy, deli item, fruit & veg, wild fish and baked goods have made it onto our online farm shop. With a growing following, stretching far and wide (even as far as the Hebrides!), we have continued to grow our selection of incredible South West small-batch produce.
As has always been the case, Eversfield’s main priority is quality; from the health of the soil and lustre of the pasture, the high quality of care for our animals, the skilled team of butchers showing off their traditional methods in our state-of-the-art, fully EU licensed butchery here on the farm; right through to the moment our boxes reach your door.
