Looe, Cornwall - 267 miles from the Farm Direct Depot


Bocaddon Farm Veal was born in 2006, when Jon and Vicky Brown moved to Bocaddon, Vicky’s family farm in Cornwall.

Vicky’s brother Rob had a dairy herd on the farm but, as often happens on dairy farms, most of the bull calves were unwanted and were being disposed of at birth.

Jon and Vicky decided to try rearing some calves for veal – in the open air, with a varied diet – to see if they could establish a market for this misunderstood meat.




In 2008 Rob took on rearing the calves, allowing Jon and Vicky to concentrate on the preparation and selling of the meat. As well as rearing all of the bull calves from Bocaddon for veal, they were also able to make use of unwanted calves from nearby farms. We built a butchery on the farm in order to have more control over the finished product, and continued expanding slowly, picking up multiple awards and plaudits for their fantastic meat.

In 2010 their lives and business were turned upside-down when Rob was killed in an accident. With no-one able to take on Rob’s enormous work-load on the farm, the dairy herd was eventually dispersed, and the last of the Bocaddon veal calves were slaughtered in summer 2011. Jon and Vicky decided to continue the work that had been started with the veal business, and we found a local farmer, Darrin Hooper, to rear calves for us to our specifications on his farm at nearby Tideford.

The philosophy of the business remains exactly the same – unwanted dairy bull calves reared in small groups, in the open air and with a varied diet. Cornish calves, reared and slaughtered in Cornwall, and all cut and prepared in our farm butchery at Bocaddon. With Darrin’s help we will be sure to provide the same quality product and the same personal service to new and existing customers across the UK.
