Askerton Castle Organic & Rare Breed Meats
Welcome to Askerton Castle Estate – an organic farm specialising in hardy native breeds in the beautiful wild countryside near Hadrian’s Wall in North East Cumbria.
We breed pedigree Belted Galloway cattle, Scottish Blackface sheep, Tamworth pigs; our purebred hens provide organic eggs, and we breed a small number of Saxony ducks, and Toulouse geese. Most of the livestock are traditional rare breeds.
We also breed Huacaya alpacas and sell fibre as well as Belted Galloway rugs.
We have an on-farm butchery which enables us to cut, prepare and pack all the fresh meat we sell – some products are garnished using seasonal organic vegetables, herbs and fruit from our small kitchen garden.
We sell what is born and bred on our farm, giving our customers complete assurance that our livestock has been cared for by us from start to finish to produce the finest quality British meat.
