Ashlyns is a farm based at High Laver Hall, Ongar in Essex.
The Pack House - Our purpose built new pack house which is used as a food hub to supply our schools, hospitals and many catering customers is also home to our butchery.
Our Produce -We source all of our meat from local farmers who rear their animals to very exacting welfare standards. We only use the finest quality cuts and we butcher everything ourselves. Our free range eggs come from Hertfordshire.
Home Delivery - We have launched the Home Delivery Service to allow people to access high quality, locally sourced affordable products. We believe in family values and traditions and have always supported the movement to a more sustainable food chain via our projects.
Event Catering - In addition to Hog Roasts or BBQ's, we have a new dedicated mobile catering unit available for all events - from small local parties to corporate catering and outdoor shows serving freshly cooked food using local ingredients.
School Meal Catering - Our children deserve great school dinners they enjoy eating and that are healthy as well. We work with schools in innovative ways to ensure that children are not only fed well but are food wise too. Food tasting sessions with parents, assemblies, sessions in class are all part of our whole school approach.
Braintree Community Hospital - Ashlyns provide three meals a day to the in-patients and we also run the staff and visitors cafe. As with all of the Ashlyns’ projects we have maintained our ethos of locally sourced, fresh ingredients that we use to prepare the meals on site daily. We cater for all dietary requirements with a wide choice of dishes. The menus are specifically designed and dietetically coded to ensure that all of the patients’ needs are met as well as ensuring the patients enjoy the best chance of recuperation.
Wholesale - As well as home delivery and catering solutions we are also able to supply fruit, vegetables and meat, butchered in house to your requirements, for wholesale customers.
