We are excited to announce that Eversfield Organic has acquired fellow Devon based organic meat business, The Well Hung Meat Company.
Based just across Dartmoor from our own farm, The Well Hung Meat Company in Buckfastleigh is joining the Eversfield fold. This will extend their already outstanding offering of organic meat and other organic produce, which we are both renowned for, providing an even better service to customers.
Adding further weight ongoing, founding director of The Well Hung Meat Company, Geoff Sayers, will become a non-executive director of Eversfield organic.
Commenting on the acquisition, our own founder and director, Mark Bury, says:
“Geoff and I have always shared similar principles and our values in terms of organic are aligned. We have enjoyed a competitive, but friendly business relationship.
The increased scale of the consolidated business will give us the strength and breadth within the industry, ensuring we can continue to innovate and provide great organic meat and produce to as many people as possible. The organic market is a challenging arena for producers to survive in financially, however the economies of scale this acquisition brings will help drive profitability.”
On a final note, Mark says:
“Our core priority will be to ensure that the transition runs smoothly and that both The Well Hung Meat Company and our existing customers are looked after with the utmost care and attention.”
On behalf of The Well Hung Meat Company, Geoff say,
“The Eversfield team is committed and experienced so this is great news for the staff, suppliers and customers of The Well Hung Meat Company. Mark and I both share the same view that the best meat comes from happy, naturally reared animals from traditional breeds. It is, therefore, an entirely logical move for the two companies to become one.
I look forward to working alongside the team at Eversfield Organic whilst also having more time to concentrate on our large dairy business and Carswell Cottages.”
The perks for existing customers of both are abundant. As well as the meat bring organic and grass fed, Eversfield Organic produce is sent fresh, not pre-frozen. The meat is butchered on the day of despatch, arriving at the customer’s door the very next day, making it the freshest meat you can buy. It is still ‘well hung’ as the beef is hung for a minimum of 21 days with premium joints hanging for up to 35 days.
