Frequently asked questions

  • There are a number of studies that suggest organic beef is a healthier option - higher in Omega 3, Amino Acids and Healthy Fats (lower in Saturated fats). There are also several other reasons why choosing organic beef is a good idea. They range from the contribution of organic beef to climate change (grass fed beef also supports a farming system which restores goodness to the soil), animal welfare and the use of pesticides and medicines used in the farming of conventional beef animals having a detrimental effect on our health.

  • By definition – organic beef in the UK is fed on a diet predominantly made up of grass. However this won't necessarily make it 100% grass fed, this is not an organic standard. We supplement our organic beef’s diets when grass alone isn’t up to doing the job. As part of our regular crop rotation, we plant some cereals, such as barley, alongside nutritious legumes like peas. These can be grown together in the same field and harvested as a ‘whole crop’. That means the stalk and seed are cut and stored together, so there’s no by-product and no waste. It also means the cattle get a balanced meal with plenty of roughage. 

  • Organic beef has to be certified by an approved organic body to a number of set organic standards. These include the space that an organic beef animal has to graze, the way that its food is grown, without the use of pesticides and or unapproved fertilisers. The standards for organic beef also cover use of medicines (no routine drugs, growth promoters or additives added) and other points that improve the welfare and conditions throughout the life of the animal and on through slaughter and butchery.
