Situated on the borders of Cambridgeshire and Norfolk, the name of Bramblebee comes from our Kennel Club affix. Having owned, worked and bred Border Terriers since 1998 it seemed fitting that our pedigree pigs should be named the same!
At Bramblebee Farm, old native breeds are bred and reared traditionally and raised to the highest welfare standards. Our chosen breeds include the Gloucestershire Old Spot pig, Aberdeen Angus cattle, Shropshire Sheep, plus a commercial flock of sheep running along side. These have all been specifically selected for their hardiness and meat qualities, so they taste how meat is supposed to taste!
We butcher and process the Bramblebee range of products, including all meat joints, bacons, hams, burgers and sausages, which are available in over 10 flavors! Oh, and don’t forget the honey too! We are keen beekeepers of honey bees.
The Bramblebee Farm range is supplied direct from the farm to the general public, farm shops, butchers, restaurants and is also available by mail order.
In 2010 we obtained TSG status.TSG is part of the European Protected Food Names scheme. In 1993 EU legislation came into force which provides for a system for the protection of food names on a geographical or traditional recipe basis. The EU Protected Food Name scheme highlights regional and traditional foods whose authenticity and origin can be guaranteed. The product is awarded one of three marks: Protected Designation of Origin (PDO); Protected Geographical Indication (PGI); and Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG). Under this system a named food or drink registered at a European level will be given legal protection against imitation throughout the EU. Producers who register their products for protection benefit from having a raised awareness of their product throughout Europe. This may in turn help them take advantage of consumers’ increasing awareness of the importance of regional and speciality foods. Further details can be found the Government’s website
