Paleo – UK Food Suppliers

PALEO BUYING TIPS...

Googling “Grass Fed Meat {your county}” or “Paleo Food {your county}” tends to yield a plethora of results – not all of them that helpful.  Quality is not always easy to spot, and that’s if there’s even a stockist near you.

When it comes to meats, the best option, always, is to walk into your local farmers’ markets, butchers, fishmongers and grocers.  Not all are grass-fed, wild etc.  Those who are will absolutely tell you. Ask them questions and feel free to be fussy, specific and demanding.  Correct farming and husbandry is ALWAYS a source of pride.  Those who are farming ethically, sustainably and organically AND without grains will ALWAYS want to boast about it.  If your supplier is being cagey – move on!

 

As to Paleo Products, Store Cupboard Items etc. there has thus far been no one-stop-Paleo-shop that we could recommend…

Until Now!

 

The UK has just got a new Paleo Products site – OURS!!! – so if you want to search and find our favourite Store Cupboard / Pantry Items – CLICK HERE NOW!

 

We are NOT selling and dispatching these products ourselves – this is our compendium of Paleo and AIP products we LOVE, linked to our reviews where we’ve done them – and directing you to purchase DIRECTLY from the small companies which make or sell these items here in the UK. We ONLY list Paleo Products approved and tried by ourselves.

Our searchable listings will contain all of our favourite Paleo Pantry items – from snacks to oils, condiments to cereal and everything in between.

 

We will be ADDING to this regularly – we plan to add household and personal care items eventually too… but we also REALLY want to hear from you… Have a favourite product? Make a Paleo product yourself? Send us an email to let us know.

 

(Please note, the links on our Products Page are NOT affiliate links, with the exception of where we have linked to Amazon, where we do have an affiliate account. This costs purchasers no additional fees. If we have linked to Amazon it is because that product supplier has specifically asked us to do so.)

 

If you want to buy a broader range of items – including other healthcare items – from a ‘one-stop’ shop, rather than each individual supplier, do check out Paleo & Co, who are doing fantastic work collating and despatching your fave Paleo products from their site.

BE AWARE – MOST OF THE RECOMMENDED COMPANIES BELOW WILL REQUIRE UP TO A WEEK’S NOTICE TO BOOK DELIVERY SLOTS. THIS IS NOT A LAST MINUTE OPTION, YOU REALLY HAVE TO THINK IN ADVANCE, BUY IN BULK – AND CLEAR ENOUGH SPACE IN YOUR FREEZER!!!

 

Primal Meats – fabulous quality, but honestly must come with an ‘expensive’ warning.  This really will set you back good money – but you will definitely get good quality food.  Additionally, there is a community aspect to doing good by farmers, which is a nice touch if you can afford it.

 

Fordhall Farm – speaking of community, this is like a farmers’ collective.  My favourite – great “Paleo Box” with bones for broth, organ meats and a variety of meat cuts.  Not so great for chicken, but this is definitely a good place to get offal and bones at good prices.  Watch the £10 delivery charge and buy in bulk if you can.

 

Coombe Farm Organics – award winning – and for good reason. Wonderful selection of meat, fish, broths, chicken, meat boxes, a pantry stocked with Organic fare (Chocolate Avocado pots with your steaks, anyone?!). Also – really good ethics, really lovely ethos on husbandry and animal lives – and, on top of this, everything that we’ve tried tastes amazing…

 

Green Pasture Farms – amazing selections available as one-off or regular deliveries.  Pricing is comparable to others and they do a great variety of meats, cuts, bones, nose-to-tail and (for those with big freezers and appetites) you can even invest in buying a whole cow (we know… the things you can get on the internet these days!)

 

Athleat – perhaps the most “Paleo” of sites, focusing on the original allegiance between a Paleo dietary approach and the Primal Movement/CrossFit/Athletic lifestyle.  This site is a great all-rounder: beef, lamb, poultry, snacks, boxes, bones, burgers and a bit of offal – a one-stop meat shop with a ‘fitness’ feel.

 

Farm2Fork – all the chicken!!  Oh my, pasture raised and every cut you can think of…!  You can also buy a whole, or half, of a lamb, ginormous meat boxes (pricey… very pricey – but you get a lot of meat) and again all of the offal including tongue, marrow bones (beef) and stock bones and heart (lamb).  Free delivery over £100, and ridiculously easy to spend that much.

 

Paleo Nutrition Wales – delivers nationwide and carries a diverse array of grass-fed meats which you can build into a bespoke, boxed order along with pastured chickens and offal.  Or select one of their pre-built packs, though remember to add some organ meats into your order as they don’t come in the multipacks!

 

Warning Companies:  Well Hung Meat Company – “mostly” grass-fed, occasionally cereal grain fed is NOT grass fed.  Obviously this is not an anal deal breaker but… if you’re paying this much you may as well pay to get the proper stuff.

 

Muscle Food – not even going to hyperlink this one… just – no.  Lean meat does not define a healthy diet, nor do protein cookies and artificial sweeteners…

 

FitFodder – again, no hyperlink and very similar to the above.  Steer clear (though does come up when you google for Paleo foods).

For seafood, it’s a little more tricky, though a search on the term “Fresh Wild Seafood” can help.  Again, web resources below.  But realistically… if you’re at all near the coast or have a decent fishmonger who does their job properly (i.e NOT a supermarket fishmonger) then make use of them – ask them questions and feel free to be fussy, specific and demanding.  Correct sourcing is ALWAYS a source of pride.  Those who are fishing and farming ethically and sustainably will ALWAYS want to boast about it.  If your supplier is being cagey – move on!

 

Graig Farm – good for meat and veg, but most notable because  of the fish stocked here.  Sardines, whole trout, scallops and some special looking mackerel.

 

Eversfield Farm – literally one of the best organic, grass-fed or wild, soil association registered farms in the UK.  They are not listed in the meat section above because, whilst they do stock all of the meats, but are more expensive than others (perhaps justifiably given their accreditations).  This link is to their fish page, which stocks a fairly decent selection of wild, sustainable fish – though only the mackerel are oily!

Most vegetable deliveries are online box schemes which expect you to sign up for a while – which is great if that’s what you want.  Bear in mind that this will make your veg consumption seasonal… which is fabulous for syncing you up with nature but can get a bit same-y.  If you’re cooking for kids be prepared to be inventive with the veg and mix it up with herbs (no packet mixes, remember – fresh herbs only!) and other flavourings to stop them getting bored.

 

Better yet – forget the listings below and experiment with taking the whole family to your local farmers’ markets.  They are now ubiquitous in the UK – and we’re a farming country.  Explore, ask questions of your farmers (as ever!) and be encouraging to your local community whilst ensuring you pick up some veg (with dirt!).  Tell the kids they get to choose one weird vegetable and you can then research how to cook it in a way they would like.  It’s all about using the food foraging as part of the food eating and experimentation process.

 

But hey, we’re realistic.  You’re short on time and attention and sometimes the will to go to the effort.  So please find the organic, reputable veg-box companies below (in addition to some of the companies above which also stock veg).

 

Riverford Farm – OK, so not in the meat selection because of their “winter grain feeding” potential, but realistically you’re likely to be OK with the meat from here too.  That said, if you’re a stickler for detail go with the companies above.  When it comes to veg and fruit, Riverford’s boxes win the day.  However, be aware with all veg boxes that if you are AIP you WILL get potatoes (and tomatoes, peppers etc. in the salad boxes).  This means the “Less Roots” box from here is your best bet (potato-free for all the nightshade avoiders!). They do tell you what’s in the boxes, but this isn’t always available completely accurately in advance… however surprises (and weird, rare veg) always good..!

 

Eversfield Farm – making an appearance because not only do they do veg boxes but they also tell you what’s going to be in them (really handy, trust us!).  Not our fave simply because of a smaller selection but if you’re ordering meat, fish and veg – this farm is the best bet.

 

Abel & Cole – again, not listed under the meat and fish sections because they are a box scheme company and we’ve never found that ordering meat with that regularity is a successful or rounded way to eat. Also, the meat is not grass-fed and pastured.  All of this means that whilst we’d endorse the veg, steer clear of the meat, salad or recipe boxes which will contain non-Paleo ingredients

For the time challenged, or for those who’d like their kitchens to be clear of endless slow-cookers preparations…!
