TV property princess Kirstie Allsopp was so impressed by organic meat sold at Sidmouth Community Market that she has recommended it to her internet followers. The Channel Four star, co-presenter of Location, Location, Location and its spin-off shows, told the 40,000 people who follow her on Twitter how much she enjoyed mince steak from Peradon Organic Farm in Clyst Hydon, Mid Devon.

Jonathan and Louise Burrough will be selling their their organically-reared meat at the Sidmouth market in St John Hall, Blackmore Drive, on Saturday and also attend markets in Seaton and Ottery St Mary. People can order meat boxes and individual cuts via their online shop and the Mole Valley Farmers’ website. Delivery is free nationwide.

Kirstie, who lives in Broadhembury, East Devon, ‘tweeted’: “The boxes are a winner. Just doing a spag bol for OH (other half), the mince steak is brilliant.”

The mother-of-four believes people should shop locally, and organically, whenever possible. “The idea of meat being flown all over the world is repellent,” she said.

As the 250-acre farm is just down the road, she’s practising what she preaches. The Burroughs launched the business in January. “We’re delighted Kirstie has tried our meat and enjoyed it,” said Louise, 33. Visit www.peradonorganicfarm.co.uk.
