Our herd of rare breed Longhorn cows calve outdoors in the spring, and the calves then stay with their mothers until they are 9 months old. Once weaned the Longhorn cattle take upto 36 months to reach full maturity, and this slow growth process is reflected in the quality and taste of the beef. The cattle graze predominantly on old established parkland, and because of their hardiness, are content outside all year round. In the winter their diet is supplemented with home grown forage and cereals. Grass fed beef is an excellent source of Omega 3 and contains low levels of omega 6 fatty acids.
As a breed Longhorn cattle are renowned for their docile nature, superb mothering skills and ease of calving. Longhorn beef is highly regarded for its well-marbled meat which is succulent, tender and flavoursome. We age our Longhorn beef, on the bone, for a minimum of 21 days to give a superb texture and delicious flavour.
