Rare Breed and Free Range Meat
We visit our suppliers farms twice a year so that we know how the anilmals are being treated. We care about what we eat and so we pride our produce on Quality and provenance. We like to sauce Rare Breed Meat such as gloucester old spot and red poll
Gloucester Old Spot Pigs
The rearing encourages the development of the fine grained meat, full of flavour that our Gloucester Old Spot pigs are renowned for. We do not use additive or growth promoters, the pigs are reared in the traditional way and live a further ten weeks in a stress-free environment.
We have 3 farms where we keep the old spots which are all within 5 miles from our farm.. All the pigs are taken to a local family abattoir before coming back to our state of the art cutting plant were our butchers are on hand to do your orders.
The Red Poll is the native breed of Suffolk and Norfolk and has been recognised as a breed for well over 200 years. These counties, which lie in a low rather marshy part of England, border the North Sea and have soil that is generally lacking in fertility. The first general agricultural records of England record a great interest in dairy, particularly in Suffolk County. However, the farmers did not specialise in dairy animals but preferred cattle with a combination of milk production and high quality carcasses. Red Poll is on the rare breeds list and originates from Breeding of the Norfolk Red and the Suffolk Dun. Much of the flavour of the beef comes from the fat, which is well marbled and yellowish in colour, indicating a grass-fed animal. The meat is fine-grained and full red in colour.
