Organic Beef Top Rump Joint
Prime beef rump – meaty but tender and oh-so-generously flavoured
Coombe Farm Organic's organic top rump joint is a really prime piece of beef. The rump on a beef carcass comprises three muscles: the eye (which is where our organic rump steak comes from), the cap and the tail. The eye (sometimes known as the heart) is the tenderest and most prized – this where we cut our top rump joints from. Which means you're getting steak-quality meat with the convenience and versatility of a roasting joint. And because the top rump joint is all one muscle it cooks evenly and consistently. Top rump is a lean joint so to keep things moist and juicy we wrap it in a layer of pure fat that melts away into the meat.

Because we really look after our animals – from carefully selecting breeding stock to feeding an all-grass diet and maintaining top, organic welfare standards at all times – we make sure we really look after the resulting carcasses, too. All of our beef is hung on the bone for three weeks after slaughter in a temperature controlled environment. This makes a huge difference to the texture and flavour of the meat – the muscles tenderise and moisture evaporates to there's no dramatic shrinkage in our joints when they're roasted.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.
We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.
Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

One of the benefits of our organic top rump joint is super-simple carving. We recommend thick, generous slices so you can really appreciate the tenderness of the meat and the tastiness of the juices. To roast to pink perfection, blast in a hot oven for 20 minutes then turn down the temperature and continue to roast for 15 minutes per 500g, or until a meat thermometer shows 50-55˚C for rare or 55-60˚C for medium rare. Rest the joint for at least 15 minutes before carving. Alternatively, top rump makes a glorious slow-cooked pot roast. Three or four hours in a low oven or slow cooker with rich stock or broth will yield irresistibly tender meat and delicious gravy.
