Frequently Asked Questions

How long is beef aged?

The meat is dry hung for 28 days then the retail cuts are prepared and dispatched to our mail order customers.

How are the cattle fed?

The cattle are grass fed on herb rich pastures from April to October.  They are yarded over the winter and fed silage or hay, these are made at peak growth periods from the same pastures.  To finish our cattle we also feed them grass pellets.  This ensures the richness of the grass comes through in the flavour our beef.
