A visually stunning beef centrepiece, this prime rib meat is aged for 45 days, French trimmed by our Master Butcher and left on the bone for maximum flavour. Expertly matured for longer, through dry-ageing for 45 days, the meat loses moisture naturally, relaxing the grains into tenderness and enhancing its exquisite flavour. The longer the beef matures, the more the flavour intensifies, so this cut is perfect if you prefer a stronger, deeper taste. The generous marbling caramelises upon cooking for a cut that offers natural succulence and outstanding flavour. Perfect for a memorable seasonal feast. This product is delivered to you fresh & suitable for freezing.

All of our Christmas range delivered on 19th Dec to 23rd Dec is guaranteed to stay fresh until Boxing Day *except products containing pastry which are pre frozen. 48 hour deliveries (Highlands & Islands) may have a shorter life depending on dispatch times.

Tasting notes:
Smallholding Farms In & Around Yorkshire

It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat from British breeds, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural biodiversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
