IT'S BRITISH BEEF WEEK
It's British Beef Week - We're proud to farm a herd of beef cattle here in Yorkshire.
🐄 It's Great British Beef Week and what better way to celebrate than showcasing our own herd of cattle which you can see grazing on the pastures around the farm shop. We focus on high quality animal welfare and follow traditional farming methods where our cattle have a grass fed diet enabling them to grow slowly and naturally. All our beef sold in the butchery is from our own farm which gives us full control of the production methods and butchery. Check out the superb quality of our beef for yourself at our Butchery and choose from a selection of homemade steak burgers, your favourite cut of steak, or roasting joint. Our team of expert butchers are always on hand for any top tips or advice.
The majority of our beef and pork comes from our own farm, where our herd of cattle includes well bred Angus, Hereford, Simmental, Belgian Blue and Limousin. Edward’s sister, Mary, and her husband Matthew take care of 400 acres of farm land, growing wheat, barley, maize and a range of vegetables (which you can pick up in our Greengrocery). We also work with other great local farmers to ensure a consistent quality of locally reared meat for The Farm Shop and Barn Kitchen.
People often ask us, “Where’s the farm?”. Well, just look around you! The Farm Shop is surrounded by rural land which we use as pasture to grow our feed crops and vegetables. Our animals are free to graze in the nearby fields between here and junction 39 of the M1, but we ensure that they are fed on a mixture of nutritious home-grown cereals and forage crops to guarantee a unique flavour. We truly believe that happy animals give the best quality of meat.
As a family of farmers we take a hands-on and traditional approach to everything we do to achieve the best quality possible. Our beef roasts and steaks are matured on the bone for a minimum of 21 days, our award-winning hams and bacon are dry-cured here by us, and our bread is freshly baked each morning. Whilst it’s impossible for us to compete with local supermarkets on price, there’s no contest when it comes to taste and provenance.
