Our Awards

We don’t enter into competitions for any glory (although it is nice to win and be recognised). We enter because we believe it is the perfect way of showing our passion for the industry and use it as a way of educating the public about how good husbandry of animals leads directly to superior quality meat.

We go to to great lengths to ensure that the farms we select our meat from, including our own,reach an exceptional standard before during and after delivery of livestock. This, combined with our understanding of meat and how to get the best from it enable us to recommend the best methods & recipes to maximise the flavour and tenderness in our meat and meat products.
