Peradon Organic Farm are just one of the many exhibitors who will be coming to Treefest this year. They were keen to share their excitement about this year's event (25 - 27 August 2012) and tell us what they will be bringing to the Treefest Food Hall.

Peradon Organic Farm

We’re really looking forward to coming to Treefest to cook award winning organic burgers from our Devonshire farm, along with sausages and dry cured bacon.

You can choose either a granary or white freshly baked roll and help yourself to the delicious organic salad containing edible flowers as well as a range of sauces.

Our menu includes large Angus beef burgers and lamb and mint burgers. These are delicious burgers made from the very best meat and it shows in the taste.

You’ll also be able to buy our tender organic lamb uncooked, so you’ll be able to enjoy our meat at home too.

Our farm is family run and situated in the heart of the Devonshire countryside. It has been in the Burrough family for generations and the farm itself dates back as far as the 15th century. We have been organic for almost a decade.

Alec and Shirley Burrough have managed it for over 40 years and have a great deal of experience. Both are now in their late seventies and are still out and about farming every day - Alec can be seen on his circa 1960s Nuffield tractors and Shirley never leaves the sheep field! Jess the sheepdog is always by Shirley's side.

In 2008 their son Jonathan and his wife Louise left their office jobs behind them to join the organic farming business. They started selling direct to customers at markets and events locally and nationwide and this has since really grown. They have two young sons, Harry aged 3 years and 16 month old George.
