Eversfield Organic acquires Well Hung Meat Company
Published:  20 November, 2017

Meat box provider Eversfield Organic is to acquire fellow Devon-based The Well Hung Meat Company.

The two businesses are based on either side of Dartmoor in Devon. The Well Hung Meat Company is an organic meat business based in Buckfastleigh whilst family-run organic farm Eversfield Organic is positioned just outside Okehampton in Bratton Clovelly. 

By joining forces, they will extend the already outstanding offering of organic meat and other organic produce, which both are renowned for, thereby providing an even better service to customers.

Well Hung Meat Company customers will benefit from a much wider range of produce, including fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy and cheese, wild fish, bread and baked goods, deli items, award-winning charcuterie and sweet treats – all certified organic with most produce hailing from the South West as well as more delivery options. 

Founding director of The Well Hung Meat Company, Geoff Sayers, will become a non-executive director of Eversfield Organic.

Mark Bury, founder and director of Eversfield Organic, said: “Geoff and I have always shared similar principles and our values in terms of organic are aligned.  We have enjoyed a competitive, but friendly business relationship. The increased scale of the consolidated business will give us the strength and breadth within the industry, ensuring we can continue to innovate and provide great organic meat and produce to as many people as possible.  The organic market is a challenging arena for producers to survive in financially, however the economies of scale this acquisition brings will help drive profitability.” 

He added: “Our core priority will be to ensure that the transition runs smoothly and that both The Well Hung Meat Company and our existing customers are looked after with the utmost care and attention.”

On behalf of The Well Hung Meat Company, Sayers said: “The Eversfield team is committed and experienced so this is great news for the staff, suppliers and customers of The Well Hung Meat Company.  Mark and I both share the same view that the best meat comes from happy, naturally reared animals from traditional breeds.  It is, therefore, an entirely logical move for the two companies to become one. I look forward to working alongside the team at Eversfield Organic whilst also having more time to concentrate on our large dairy business and Carswell Cottages.”
