Ashlyns is a family run farm with many different and exciting projects. The farm lies in the rolling clay-lands of West Essex.

Their purpose built new pack house is used as a food hub to supply schools, hospitals and many catering customers and is also home to their butchery.

Ashlyns have now launched a Home Delivery Service to allow people to access high quality, locally sourced affordable products. They believe in family values and traditions, and have always supported the movement to a more sustainable food chain via their projects. In an ideal situation everyone would like to go to their local butcher, greengrocer and baker. In reality this is not always possible, so why not let Ashlyns be your local butcher and greengrocer and support their efforts in "Keeping it Local"?

They pride themselves on being able to supply the highest quality, locally sourced fresh produce all prepared on their farm by their highly skilled butchers. They have an extensive range of fruit, vegetables and meat that have been produced to very exacting welfare standards such as Farm Assured, Freedom Farm and Free Range.

Their aim is to keep food miles down, support local farmers, provide local employment and help build a strong link between grower and consumer.

Their pork is sourced from Blythburgh in Suffolk who are award winning free range pig farmers. The free range eggs come from Hertfordshire; beef, lamb and poultry sourced as close to the farm as possible. A lot of the vegetables come from Suffolk and the salads, soft fruit and potatoes come from Essex.

Ashlyns Catering has achieved the prestigious Silver Food for Life Catering Mark from the Soil Association for for serving fresh, healthy meals to Braintree Community Hospital and St Margaret’s Hospital in Epping, making them the first hospitals in the UK to gain a Silver Catering Mark. They have also been awarded Bronze Food for Life Catering Mark for serving fresh, healthy meals to schools in Essex, Hackney and Cambridgeshire.
