Beef cattle should be naturally raised, with calves suckling their mothers and to have at least a season on grass. We only source Steer or Heifer, always under 30 months and all have full traceability right back to conception.
Our Prime beef range is hung as whole sides for a minimum of 14 days, the sides are then quartered and the select cuts hung for a further 14 days to dry age, 28 days in total. All year round supply of Prime Beef from a single farm is an impossible task, so we carefully select our suppliers, which can result in different breeds and therefore slightly different finishing. We do have one exclusive range that is continuous and is highly regarded as the optimum for quality beef production:
With the assistance of Yorkshire Forward and the English Farming and Food Partnership (EFFP) scheme we have recently been awarded an EU Grant for the development of the supply chain of Yorkshire, born and bred and finished, Shorthorn Beef Cattle. The Shorthorn breed is originally from the Yorkshire region and has the acclaim of being recorded in the oldest herd book in the world, the Coates Herd Book.
We now have one finishing farm near York sourcing store cattle from the regions Yorkshire Shorthorn Society members to finish on our behalf. The meat is of the best you will ever taste and has often beaten such well known breeds as the Aberdeen Angus in blind tasting.
With Yorkshire Shorthorn, and the new supply chain we have initiated, we can guarantee you a steak, or any other cut of beef, that is beyond comparison and has unquestionably the finest traceability on offer.
