Heritage Meats is based at Yew Tree Farm in the stunning Lake District.
The farm was once owned by Beatrix Potter and starred in the feature film ‘Miss Potter’. A working hill farm, Yew Tree comprises of over 700 acres of fell and field in the Yewdale Valley near Coniston, home to a flock of Herdwick ewes and a herd of Belted Galloway Cattle.
We specialise in Herdwick Hogget, Herdwick Mutton and Belted Galloway Beef, our animals roam freely over our herb rich pastures and fells.

“Every now and again you find a supplier and think to yourself where have you been for all this time.
Yew Tree, Heritage meats is such a supplier, a real find for all our restaurants.
Amazing flavours that just cannot be beaten.”
L’enclume / Masterchef
“Jon Watson and Yew Tree Farm exemplify everything that’s right about a new generation of conscientious and professional small scale meat producers, everything from the delicious carefully presented meat to the impressive packaging, smacks of attention to detail and quality. Their Herdwick Hogget is among the finest I have tasted”
