The Bakewell family have been at Charlton Farm since 1937. Debbie and James Bakewell are third generation and have been farming there since June 1998.
Charlton Farm is a traditional mixed arable farm in which cereals and field scale vegetables are grown.
Using Debbie's expertise as a food technologist, we diversified into rearing Barbary ducks as a speciality table bird.
This is a slower growing duck which has a larger quantity of leaner, darker meat than other commercial breeds.
We are a small family business and pride ourselves on being able to offer an individual service.
Barbary duck is a truly versatile and delicious type of duck, renowned for its excellent quantity of flavourful meat. It makes an ideal starting point for many delicious recipes.
We sell direct to restaurateurs and to the public through butchers, farm shops, farmers' markets, food festivals and also by mail order to customers throughout the UK.
The birds are fed on a natural, cereal based additive-free diet and are all grown and processed on our own farm.
We are unable to take orders online at present, but this facility will be available as from September 2017.
