WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result. 

WHAT IS ORGANIC BEEF?​

Living active, free-range lives, our organic grass-fed beef is a nutrient-dense food. We farm our cattle in harmony with nature, grazing livestock in turn helps to regenerate the health of our soil. At Coombe Farm Organic, we select only the highest-quality cuts to deliver pure, distinctive flavour every time.

Ingredients

  • coombe farm organic beef topside, thinly sliced 
  • 250g raw beetroot
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • sea salt, for seasoning
  • 200g mixed leaf salad
  • 1 tbsp good-quality olive oil
  • 125g cooked mixed grains
  • 3 tbsp jarred ferments, i.e. kimchi or sauerkraut
  • cracked black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Top and tail the beetroot discarding the stalks and leaves and wash the skins thoroughly. Chop into generous wedges and place in a roasting tin before drizzling with a little oil and season with salt.
  2. Roast in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes until the beetroot feels just tender when tested with a sharp knife. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly whilst preparing the other ingredients.
  3. Place the leaves in a large, shallow serving bowl and drizzle with a little good-quality olive oil. Toss the leaves to completely coat in the oil.
  4. Place the thinly slices beef on top of the salad leaves before sprinkling over the cooked grains. Finish the salad by dotting small spoonfuls of the ferment and a generous crack of black pepper.

Frequently asked questions

  • 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.

  • Organic beef is made of a number of butchered cuts that come from a cow reared in an organic certified system. There are several organic bodies in the UK who can offer this accreditation such as the Soil Association & Organic Farmers and Growers. The standards set by these bodies will affect the husbandry, birth, life, slaughter and processing of an organic beef animal. Every standard must be met and is audited at least annually to ensure this is the case.

  • The difference between beef and dairy cattle is that they are different breeds of the same species, cows. Dairy cattle produce milk, are thinner and longer whereas beef cattle are more muscular and have a stouter shape.
