All our beef is supplied by P O Almey & sons of Tavistock Farm, Antingham near North Walsham. The Almey family have been farming cattle for generations and have a good stock of quality animals all year round.
The breeds of cattle we have are mostly Simmental and Limosin (continental breeds which are famed for their lean tender meat) crossed with native breeds such as Hereford, Shorthorn and Aberdeen Angus which are known for their marbled texture.
The Cattle are free to graze in large fields in and around the farm, eating mainly grass supplimented with grain and vegetable waste such as potatoes and swede. They are bought into sheds for the winter months to shelter from the harsh weather and help to regenerate the soil. The proximity and the way in which our cattle are reared (and has been for generations) has a much lower carbon footprint than intensively reared cattle.
To further improve the flavour and tenderness we dry age the beef in our specific cold store for between 21-28 days.
At certain times of the year we occasionally have to buy from other Norfolk Farms if we are running Low on Certain Cuts but they are all of the same high quality that you would expect.
