Using the finest quality meat, locally sourced where possible, Hockey’s butchers are able to offer tasty meat and poultry with a personal traditional butchery service. With a wealth of experience behind them they are ready to help with any specific requirements. All sausages and burgers are handmade at the farm, using a variety of own recipes.
Hockey’s own New Forest Marque pork achieved Great Taste Award, 2 Gold Stars for its Hand of Pork and Sausages.
During Pannage Season, Hockey’s pigs can be found roaming freely in the surrounding New Forest. Pannage Season runs in late Autumn and allows the pigs to forage for acorns and beech nuts, which create a delicious and distinct flavour to the meat, as mentioned in the National Geographic Traveller.
Hockey’s butchers also work in conjunction with other local farmers. Wendy Maughan, a New Forest Marque member at Forest Meats @ Manor Farm provides quality local meat from award winning native breed animals produced at Manor Farm near Cadnam. The majority of animals are bred and reared on the family run farm in the New Forest and then grazed freely on the open forest commons and woodlands.
Andrew Bishop’s Beef Farm is just outside Ringwood. Andy’s cattle are grazed on water meadows, land which has been in his family for two generations and which supports sainfoin - a pollen rich plant much loved by the bees and which is rich in protein that can be utilised well by ruminants.
During the Christmas period, excellent slow grown free-range bronze turkeys reared in Sway, New Forest, by Paul Tanner and his family are available to order. Paul also produces free-range chicken and geese.
