The cattle of the Vikings
Why this breed
One of Britain's most ancient breeds, the Lincoln Red was probably brought to our shores by Viking invaders as they settled in the North and East of England. The breed was then 'improved' during the 18th and 19th centuries by various breeders looking to increase both meat and dairy yields. Listed as vulnerable by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust, today they are making something of a comeback by virtue of their ability to convert pasture efficiently into excellent meat, the standout quality of which is the rich marbling that gives the beef its juicy succulence.
At Farmison & Co we are working together with farmers and actively promoting values that were in danger of being lost elsewhere through industrial processes.
