March House Farm are proud to rear and produce the beef, lamb and pork from their own farms in Great Dalby & Little Dalby, which is now available at Whites Farm Shop.
Their core values are straightforward, simple with an honest approach to food and farming. They are not driven by trends but by tradition and provenance. March House Farm care for both their livestock and the land they live on. Regenerative and sustainable farming techniques mean that their animals and safe and well, and their soils keep good stores of the nutrients the livestock need.
The Belcher family have been farming in Great Dalby, Leicestershire since 1780. They are the fourth generation at March House Farm which has always been a mixed farm, breeding quality, traditional, native livestock and crops.
In 1999 their journey into butchery and retail started when they took their first selection of home reared lamb, beef & pork and set up a market stall at Camden Lock in London. Very soon they had progressed to several markets throughout north and west London.
The gamble had paid off… they were selling their home reared quality produce. In 2005 they built their own on-site butchery, at March House Farm and were quickly selling to local customers.
In 2017 came the development of their own Farm Shop, which was a huge move for them to move into a retail shop. The demand was there, and they have not looked back.
In 2018 their chefs started to showcase their farm produce in retail products, such as homemade pies, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, pasty’s and their hand raised ‘Melton Mowbray’ pork pie and they continuously work on the development of quality food.
