Monica Akehurst, Red Tractor lamb farmer
Fred and Monica Akehurst run a mixed 2nd generation farm of 170 hectares in East Sussex. Their sheep flock is made up of 250 Mule and Suffolk ewes and their lambs.
“As a farmer and producer of food, I want consumers to buy my lamb with confidence that it has been reared with care and compassion as well as assurance of its provenance. It is for this reason that I’m proud to be a Red Tractor farmer and encourage you to look for the Red Tractor logo on your food”.
The Red Tractor logo with the Union flag means that the product you are buying has been farmed, processed and packed in the UK and has been independently inspected to ensure that they meet the Red Tractor standards in relation to animal welfare, environmental protection, food safety and traceability.
