Our story




Bushblades is a small 18-acre family-run farm. Three generations of the family are involved in the upkeep and day to day running of the farm.

Located in Tantobie, North Durham. The farm was established in the mid-1800s and is made up of a number of small paddocks, all of which are clearly visible from the farmhouse. The farm is fortunate to have access to a natural spring, which provides an abundance of fresh running water through the main paddock 365 days a year.

New to farming but routed in the ideology of sustainable, traditional farming methods, Garry has built the idea of the Bushblades farm around the core values of ‘Plain and Simple’.

Jane’s background of food and feed law enforcement means that the farms’ foundations of providing good quality meat have been built around the ethos of only using good quality feed and providing healthy outdoor living conditions for the animals all year round.

The farm’s orchard, vegetable gardens, and grassland are pesticide free and the natural hawthorn hedgerows mean that the environment is blooming with natural insects and wildlife. Keen to obtain organic status only natural fertilisers are used (alpaca poo) to replenish the soil’s nutrients.

The farm is built on two pillars:

  • Animal welfare
  • Premium products

    We are guided by the ‘five freedoms’ in all that we do and are working towards the RSPCA Freedom Foods accreditation.

    We are currently working with other ‘like-minded’ local farmers and individuals to produce our premium product to sell directly to our customers. At the moment this is ‘over the gate sales’ but our farm shop is coming soon.

    What a treat to try these delicious pork chops. Simple cooking method led to flavoursome, tender meat. Knowing the rearing process and the quality of care provided, I would recommend this product.

    Tried the saddle back pork loin steaks. Excellent quality and flavour with a good layer of fat that melts nicely to help keep the meat moist. Excellent customer service and good value for money for locally reared produce from a family run farm.

    I was lucky enough to try the saddle back pork from this business and I have to say that it was so very very good. I literally didn’t know pork was supposed to taste that good. Thank you very much, I’m looking forward to trying more in the future. Thanks…
