Grass Fed Meats
OUR BRAND VALUES*
We believe smaller family-run farms are the sustainable way to produce meat and that selling direct to the customer ensures money goes to farming communities that do so much to look after the countryside.
Grasses, wildflowers and herbs comprise the natural diet of cattle and sheep. Spending as much time as possible in the fresh air eating natural foods contribute to happier and healthier livestock. Permanent pastures store carbon, a greenhouse gas, and act as a brake for floodwater. Grazing with livestock improves the fertility of the soil and enhances bio-diversity, and, does not create the same waste disposal issues as those associated with livestock reared in sheds. We ensure our farmers do not use any pesticides or inorganic fertilisers.
Our staff are all from the local community. We support small, traditional farms that graze their livestock on pastureland, many areas of which are still packed with native grasses and wildflowers that make them havens for wildlife.
Packaging & Waste
We aim to reduce waste and all our packaging where possible is recyclable.
Inspiring & Educating
By producing high quality meat products we hope to inspire and educate on the importance of grass fed meats. We also promote the use of Heritage farm breeds which aren’t just good to eat: they play an important role in taking care of the environment around them, helping to preserve the traditional landscapes for which England is famous.
Where possible we aim to reduce energy consumption and lower our carbon footprint.
Slow-grown grass-fed meat tastes great and contains significant levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, along with Vitamin A and E and the antioxidant beta-carotene. It also contains more Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), associated with lowering the risk of heart disease and cancer as well as promoting leaner body mass.
We ensure all farms used maintain the highest levels of animal welfare, that they all allow their animals to grow at their own pace in pastures that suit the animals native environments. This ensures we only sell meat from happy and healthy animals.
