Last week, Pasture for Life hosted an event at FarmED in the Cotswolds that brought together all parts of the supply chain – chefs, butchers, restaurants and retailers – into one room, together with a handful of our member farmers and our Pasture for Life team to discuss the benefits of pasture-fed and ways in which we could all work together.

The day started with cheery introductions over a cup of coffee, and soon after, a hearty lunch including 100% pasture-fed meat sourced locally from Jonty Brunyee of Conygree Farm and Andy Rumming of Waterhay Farm, alongside delicious homegrown greens from FarmED.

After lunch, Jonty took the group through the evolution of FarmED, shifting from a more conventional system to an agroecological, holistic system with grazing animals at the centre of it. The afternoon was filled with a farm walk around the diverse farming systems at FarmED, whilst it gave the group the opportunity to meet further and brainstorm ideas.

Back in the warm surroundings of the FarmED HQ, and with another brew in hand, the group came together again, energised with what we saw and heard from Jonty on the walk, and our Executive Director, Jimmy, led discussions on how best each part of the supply chain can work together to promote the multitude of benefits of pasture-fed and their businesses, respectively.
