We've used Riverford for quite a while now for our veg but am needing to source an organic meat/fish supplier. I have just ordered with Farmers Choice who are not organic but free range but considering they operate out of an industrial estate in Hampshire, I am not 100% hopeful. We eat very little meat and would prefer to go more fish orientated but as many farms are located in Devon, Yorkshire or Scotland, I am finding it hard to source anyone who might cover the South East. Anyone have any recommendations?

Abel & Cole do meat and fish. I don't buy regularly - too expensive - but had some lemon sole from them recently which was delicious.

My sister runs an organic meat delivery service. All meat from her farm, butchered by her. Delivers to me (London)and parents in scotland (ie, everywhere). Prices much better than supermarket too. If anyone's interested let me know and I'll pass on details.

Oh, yes Alex, post her website here. It's not an ad if the information is solicited by other (I think, hope MN agrees).

Ooh yes, please post details - would be v. interested.

Not sure if website is up and running yet, but best bet is to call farm shop ('On the table') 01872 571 400 and she can send price lists/take orders.

Yes Abel & Cole (who i used to work for! ) do very good meat & fish.

what's the difference between organic fish and normal fish, then?

IIRC, I don't think fish can officially be called "organic" because of course it is in the wild in the sea or rivers. When i was working at A&C they were sourcing their salmon from a salmon farm but that must have changed as i just read this on their website:

"We have scoured the country for fish producers who agree with us on the importance of sustainability and quality — as you can see from the range that they send to us here. Our wild fish is not organic as it hasn't been farmed, but our fishermen fish the seas with consideration and respect for the natural populations. "

Oh that's interesting. So, if fish is organic, then it's been farmed? Because otherwise how would you know what it's been eating.
