We believe British breeds are best - and by that we mean truly
British, heritage breeds. This animal husbandry was moved around
the world during the Victorian Era, leaving a legacy across most
meat eating nations.
We source these heritage breeds from farmers and producers with
the highest welfare standards and support of traditional animal
husbandry. These breeds, which typically take longer to reach
maturity than commercial breeds, are reared slowly and are always
grass-fed and free-range with minimal human intervention unless
required. Antibiotics are only administered if entirely necessary
and only to the individual cow, not the whole herd. The same
applies to all the species we source.
Many of the breeds we offer are listed on the Rare Breeds
Survival Trust - this means they're on a numbers watchlist showing
the rarity of the species. By producing a demand for them, we're
helping with the resurgence of numbers and supporting the remaining
farmers who continue to produce them. Without this demand, many
breeds would die out altogether.
