Why is MilkBeef better?
Your People: Independent scientific studies show that meat grown the MilkBeef way makes for healthier eating than that of beef finished on grains. It has higher levels of the Omega 3 fatty acids needed for human brain development, higher levels of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) which is associated with lowering heart disease and cancer risk, and higher levels of vitamins and minerals. Thus, MilkBeef lends itself extremely well to healthier meals for all of the family.
Our Cows: The health and welfare of our animals is our top priority. If we were unable to maintain our standards, we would stop before we dropped them. Our production system means that our calves spend their entire lives in their natural environment with their mothers, in a herd and at pasture. Only a tiny proportion of the beef available to UK consumers today has had that life.
The Environment: Whilst there is no such thing as low carbon beef, there is less carbon beef. MilkBeef achieves this by growing on permanent grassland and is part of a natural cycle that helps to capture and store carbon in those soils. Outside inputs are minimised or not used at all. Packaging, wastage and food miles are kept as low as possible by keeping all processing local and supplying in bulk.
How is MilkBeef supplied?
MilkBeef is seasonal – it is only available fresh for 8 weeks through October and November. MilkBeef cannot be made any other way. Also, being a small family farm means that we can only produce so much MilkBeef each year – stocks will be limited. Thus, MilkBeef can only be purchased from your local quality butcher or direct from us. Please see below for more details.
