Corporate Social Responsibility
The Blackwell family has been farming locally for over 100 years. Martin Blackwell, 3rd generation farmer, established Direct Meats in May 1995. Direct Meats is a family run business, wholly owned by Martin and Linda Blackwell. Forward thinking and great determination drove Martin and his team forward to create the company that we have today.
Direct Meats make regular and committed contributions to Mind, as well as a number of other charities and good causes, with Martin Blackwell and Terri-Anne Lamb completing a half Iron Man for charity.
We are always looking for new ways to work better with the world around us and reduce our carbon emmisions. We have transformed an unused 8 acre field into a sustainable food source and haven for local wildlife.
