About the cut

Ox Tongue

The Ox Tongue was once a staple of British butcher's boards, and was often popular on special occasions for buffets. Demand for Ox Tongue is rising again, and it remains a prized piece of offal. Ours are taken from grass fed pedigree beef herds, before being cured by in our traditional wet brine for ten days. This is to bring out the flavour of the Ox Tongue, before being cooked at home.

Tasting notes:
Region:
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.
