Thanks to working with a local farm shop, we can now provide a wider range of boxes to suit all tastes and freezer sizes!

Good reasons to buy your lamb and beef from Derbyshire Wildlife Trust:

It’s good for you. Our animals are fed a total grass based diet, grazing our nature reserves and eating hay produced from them. Naturally reared meat has been proven to be lower in saturated fat, yet higher in omega-3, minerals and vitamins.

It’s good for the environment. Because our animals are fed on grass that we grow naturally, we don’t rely on imported soya, the production of which can lead to the destruction of tropical rainforests. We use a local abattoir to minimise stress on the animals and our carbon footprint.

It’s good for our nature reserves. We only use our animals on nature reserves where their presence is of benefit to the habitats we are managing. Our grasslands, wetland and scrub need active management to retain their diversity and livestock can be a great way of achieving this.

It’s good for the Trust. All of the money we raise from the sale of our meat boxes goes back into the Trust, helping us to look after Derbyshire’s wildlife for the future.

Price of lamb

Lamb is priced at £8.50 per kilo and is typically £40-£65 a box. 

Price of beef

Previously we have only sold 20kg boxes but now, thanks to working with a local farm shop, we can offer a wider range of boxes to suit all tastes. 

Beef Lovers Box (approx. 20kg @ £11 per kg)

The original box – a range of roasting and slow cooking joints, prime steaks, diced beef, stewing steak, and mince. We feel that this box really gives you a taste of what we produce and will keep you supplied in high quality beef for some time. Suitable for the larger family with a big freezer!

Family Box (approx. 10kg @ £12 per kg)

The same range of joints, steaks diced and minced beef as out Beef Lovers Box but half the size. This box is by popular request, for those with smaller freezers who want to still take advantage of our wonderfully tasty beef. 

Boxes can be tailored to your requirements, depending on supply. All pack sizes are approximate and you will be charged by the weight. Single joints/packs may be available, please ask for details.

How are the boxes packaged? 

The meat is vacuum packed in individual portions for hygiene and freshness. It can be frozen like this until you want to use it. Each pack will have the name/weight on it. It is then presented in a box for easy transport together with some information about Woodside Farm and our work there.

How to order your meatbox

Simply call us on 01773 881188 and say what size/type of box you’d like. We ask for a £30 deposit per box and will take your contact details. Once we know when the meat will be ready we will be in touch to arrange collection from our office.
