My husband and I sell our lamb and beef under the brand, Heritage Graziers (www.heritagegraziers.co.uk). We pride ourselves on producing pasture fed lamb and beef that is full of flavour and grown to excellent welfare and environmental priorities. Our animals live outdoors all year round from the moment they are born thriving in their natural habitat, and as we choose traditional British breeds that grow slowly, our meat naturally develops a rich, full flavour.
If fantastic taste and high welfare doesn't convince you, the health benefits of beef and lamb are greater when animals are fed totally on grass – their natural food. Omega 3 fatty acids, recognised as essential to good physical and mental health, are higher in meat fed from grass and the levels of the saturated fats linked to heart disease are reduced by a third.
Fields of just grass can provide all the nutritional components an animal needs. However, pastures which contain a variety of plant species, including herbs, wildflowers and clovers provide an even better diet – rich in essential vitamins and minerals drawn up from the soil below.
You can order a lamb box through my online store, and we can courier to anywhere on mainland UK - and if you live locally we will deliver it personally. All our lamb and beef can be purchased through our Heritage Graziers website - www.heritagegraziers.co.uk
As well as supplying the public directly through our meat box scheme, we are also happy to talk to local restaurants, pubs and other catering establishments who would like to work with local producers.
