We are pleased to announce that we are now selling traditionally reared beef, sourced locally from George and Jerry Stephenson near Aynho.   


Beef is supplied by George and Jerry Stephenson's Red Poll beef herd at nearby Aynho.

Their herd is run as a beef suckler unit grazing grass for most of the year and housed in strawed yards during winter months when they are fed  on a mixture of hay and haylage. Calves remain with their mothers for up to eight months and are then allowed to mature slowly being finished at around 24 months.

The Red Poll has been established for over 200 years and was originally derived from crossing the Norfolk cow with a Suffolk polled bull.  Once in serious decline as a breed it has now found new favour because of its high quality, well marbled meat which has exceptional flavour.
