Working with the forestry commission we have built up a herd of long horned cattle aimed at not only producing some of the Southwest's most unique and great tasting beef, but, also helping to restore deforested areas literally from the grass roots up. Long horns being more hardy stand up to forest conditions and are more resilient to disease.
Grazing cattle also contributes to the encouragement of insect life such as butterflies which are an excellent early indicator of a reviving and healthy eco system. By eating better we can actually help our countryside look better and sustain itself in a manageable way.
Forest beef is all about great food and a fantastic product. We are proud of the lifestyle of our animals, proud they are slaughtered locally without discomfort and travel. Why not take the taste challenge, eat some of the finest beef in the world and we challenge you to not find that you buy at a great price but get the best.
Forest Beef on Countryfile!
Our farm is privileged to have been picked to feature on ‘Adam’s Farm’ on BBC’s Countryfile. The film crew arrived at 9:30am and didn’t leave until 5pm – we never realised quite how long it takes to shoot such a short piece of film. So if you would like to have a look at our farm, cattle and the forests they graze in, watch Countryfile on BBC1, Sunday 25th Septmber 2011 from 7pm. Read more on the Longhorn Beef news page.
Pedigree Old English Longhorn Cattle.
These fantastic rare breed cattle grow very slowly and like many good things in life take time to reach their peek, but the beef we produce is second to none.
Slaughtered locally and then hung on the bone for 3 weeks. Old English longhorn was recently voted the best beef in Britian with superb flavour and texture.
