Christmas 2014

Now that the harvest has been gathered and the new seasons crops are being sown here at Great Clerkes Farm it is time to turn our attention to our Christmas poultry.  Our famous free-range geese will of course be available from November until the beginning of January along with our delicious chickens, ducks and guinea-fowl (who were on the telly earlier in the year).  Please click on the Christmas poultry tab at the top of the page for more details and how to order.



We've just started attending a new market in Cambridge city centre, every Friday. We'll be there selling our whole birds or cuts of meat and also our new range of ready meals which are ideal for filling your freezer.


The most famous farmer in Essex?

As well as running the farm, nursing his wayward family, captaining The Sampfords cricket team and producing the odd work of contemporary artwork, somehow Simon Hughes finds the time to appear on various televisual programmes connected to quality food production - any celebrity chef of calibre wants a connection with Great Clerkes Farm.  In April of this year Brian Turner and Janet Street-Porter came to the farm to record a program about Guinea-fowl farming in the East of England.  The photo above shows them cooking a delicious casserole outside the farm house (Janet is the one without the moustache).


Home Smoked Goose

As a sumptuous starter or light snack our smoked goose is perfect for those cold winter nights or a Christmas treat.   Gently smoked over oak chips in our own smoker at the farm, it is a highly flavoursome and tender meat, and when served on warm crusty bread with a selection of pickles it has to be sampled to be believed.
