About Sillfield Farm
Sillfield Farm is home to Wild Boar, Rare Breed Pigs, Herdwick sheep and rare breed types of poultry. All of which are Free Range.
Some of the farm buildings have been converted into a compact processing facility and the business supports a labour force of four full time and a few part time staff.
The owners are Peter and Christine Gott, who have been running the farm for twenty years.
The farm is set in the picturesque English Lake District and its elevated position in the village of Gatebeck, means that the farm is home to some of the best landscape in the whole of the Lake District, with some fields providing breath taking 360 degree panoramic view, comprising of dramatic mountain ranges, rolling hills and glistening seas. As seen especially on Great Railway Journeys programme with Michael Portillo last year.
Sillfield Farm produces some of the finest farm products in the country and has received numerous awards in recognition of the quality and taste of these products, with fans including Jamie Oliver and Prince Charles.
Peter Gott is a very well respected leader in Artisan Food Production and as such is often very busy filming numerous television programmes and passing on to people his methods.
Jamie Oliver sends his students from his restaurant Fifteen to Sillfield Farm every year, where they are shown how the animals are reared and they are taught the importance of using quality ingredients in their cooking.The nineth batch arrived again this January and spent two days making sausages bacon and carcass cutting
We provide some of the best restaurants in London with our products, including Fifteen Restaurant since it opened with 2 pigs every week and our home made Cumberland Black Pudding and Wild Boar spicy chipolata sausages to the Caprice Group and Mark Hix s ever growing restaurant chain. We have a limited number of wild boar which have all been born here at the farm and live in 16 acres of woodland all the time.We have to hold a dangerous wild animals licence but they were happy to appear on the ONE SHOW last year .
