Winner of the Surrey Life 2014 Food & Drink Producer of the Year Award
What is special about Longhorn beef?
Longhorn beef is prized by top chefs for its superior eating qualities - indeed, the world-famous, Michelin starred chef, Heston Blumenthal, uses Longhorn beef! This traditional beef breed tastes just like it should and can't be compared with mass-produced meat. Its taste is pleasingly intense, long and lingering. It is the beef of connoisseurs.
Pasture for Life
We are very proud to hold Pasture for Life certification for our Longhorn Beef. This guarantees the meat comes from animals that have only eaten grass and pasture throughout their lives.
Pasture fed animals fed on a diet of grass and pasture are less stressed, live longer and are more fertile. This means we have no reliance on imported feeds such as soya from South America and mean’s our herd have a low carbon footprint.

Marvellously marbled, tender & succulent
The meat is marbled with fat, important for succulence, tenderness and flavour; the hallmark of beef with superior eating quality. However, there is no excessive laying down of fat.
Today’s Longhorns are clean, modern cattle; well capable of producing lean beef with superior eating qualities. We hang our beef for a full 28 days therefore maximising the best possible flavour and reducing moisture in the meat.
Properly hung beef is superb for freezing and will emerge from a spell in the freezer with no loss of texture or flavour unlike immature, wet meat.
Due to the restrictions of a small herd and the time taken to produce beef of such superb quality, there is a limited supply, although we usually have beef dry maturing and some frozen meat available.
We have various suggested meat selection boxes available or would be delighted to make a bespoke pack for you with any special cuts you require - do not hesitate to contact us for further details and see our price list below.
Call us on 01883 650244 to reserve your box now, it is perfect for home freezing, or send us an email telling us what you need and we'll get back to you.
Entirely grass fed, they roam an area of outstanding natural beauty high on the North Downs in Woldingham, and are encouraged to wander and forage and act just as cows should. In winter, haylage and Lucerne made on the farm sustains them until spring, which sees the return of the sweet grasses and wildflowers that they love so much. Contented cows, free to mature at their own pace, produce meat which is second to none. Indeed, tests on grass fed beef reveal it is up to four times higher in heart healthy Omega’s 3, 6 and 9, Vitamins A and E, minerals and "good" unsaturated fats that can help fight diseases like cancer and diabetes.
