Hereford Beef

Originally from Herefordshire, England, United Kingdom, more than five million pedigree Hereford cattle now exist in over 50 countries. Throughout its history the Hereford has maintained its distinctive white face and red coat. Herefords finished off grass produces excellent ‘marbled’ beef . It has a distinctive flavour and renowned eating quality.  Herefords are well suited to forage based diets. Research at Bristol University has shown Hereford beef produced off grass and forage based diets, is high in the essential fatty acid omega-3 and has a distinctive taste. Herefords have a great temperament and are generally docile animals which makes them very easy to work with and results in great beef.

Aberdeen Angus

Originally from Aberdeen in Scotland going back to 1700’s this hardy animal originally a work horse survives very well outdoors all year round and is a particularly docile animal. Aberdeen Angus are known throughout the world for their ability to consistently produce the finest high quality beef. The superior meat quality of  Aberdeen Angus cattle comes from their ability to lay down intra-muscular marbling fat during the finishing phase, together with excellent tenderness, texture, flavour, meat colour and fat colour.

Wagyu Beef

Wagyu beef is fast becoming one of the most desirable meats in the world. Described as the Foie Gras of beef, Wagyu has become famous for its intense marbling which produces a tender, juicy, naturally enhanced flavour to the meat. The meat is high in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids as a result of its intense marbling. Wagyu is proven to be significantly lower in saturated fat and higher in healthy monounsaturated fat making it far healthier than any other breed of beef available on the market.
