Jacob's Ladder Farms exists to provide an opportunity for smaller farms and artisan food processors to trade in London viably by working in association with each other. Those who participate share a common interest in natural and sustainable farming practices and in the production of interesting and uncomplicated local food.
Where we will be this week
We will be trading on Saturday at 104 Druid St, Brockley Market and Crystal Palace Market. We will be at the Herne Hill Market this coming Sunday and the new Wapping Market.

Native, Sussex, Grass Fed, Produced by Ourselves - Beef
We are delighted to have the return of the newsletter, after a break over the summer. What better way to start than to inform our good customers that we have our own beef on the counter this week.

We have been slowly building up the herd over the past ten years and have now reached our optimum herd number for the acres we have - a herd of just 42. Small and beautiful, the herd benefits from grazing on the carefully managed pasture that has not had seen any artificial chemicals since our arrival at Godman’s Farm.

The calves benefit from staying with the mothers until they naturally wean themselves at around 9 months. During the winter they are kept in a spacious barn where they are fed only hay that is grown and made on the farm.

The animals will be leaner due to not being fed any grain but you should notice a difference in the flavour and the texture of the meat.

Other good news since our last newsletter is the return of Andy’s own baked sourdough bread. For a while he asked another baker to bake for him whilst he concentrated on the growing of the grain. This did not turn out well for Andy as the quality was not up to his exceptionally high standards. Therefore he has taken back the reins of baking the bread again on our neighbouring farm and we are delighted.

We also have a limited number of fresh, raw, goats milk from Edwina this week so please order beforehand to avoid disappointment.

On the counter at Druid Street this week we have the return of a butcher. David has worked for one of the best reputed butchers in our local town called Fry’s for at least twenty years. Since then he has helped our neighbouring biodynamic farm to build up their very successful butchery business and is now joining us on a part time basis to help us continue to build ours. He’s extremely friendly and very knowledgeable so do go along and say hello.

Joining us soon is a full time butcher - but more news on that later.

Michael, (the farmer for those who don’t already know) will be at Brockley Market tomorrow and I will be at Crystal Palace Market.

Look forward to seeing you at the counter.
