Our Breeds and the Delicatessen



By clicking on the sections below, you will find brief notes as to the breed itself and how it will taste to help guide you in your selection. We've also prepared a guide to the different cuts of meat available - click here for more information.

We don't only offer meats - our delicatessen can also provide pies, cheeses, eggs and more. Visit the delicatessen section for more information...

Beef from our native breeds, raised and matured in the most natural way is a delight to eat. Quality meat is produced by allowing animals to mature at a natural pace on grass without hurrying the process or feeding unnecessarily high protein compounds and growth promoters, combined with high welfare farming practices.

Lamb from Britainís rare breeds kept on grass and matured at their own pace is truly something to savour. But the breeds vary in flavour and texture in much the same way as different varieties of wine or cheese do. Watch out too for our Hogget Lamb, mainly from rare Primitive breeds, a different experience again.

Pork and Bacon from British rare breeds raised naturally is something quite different from the run-of-the-mill produce offered in the mass market.  Pork which is succulent, juicy, tender and full of flavour. Roasting joints with light, crispy crackling. And real bacon, bursting with flavour.
