All our meat is reared on our croft in Strathnairn. Our main produce is beef. Our herd are grass and hay fed with occasional treats from a bucket to ensure handling and minimise stress. Shetland cattle are a rare, native breed that are slower growing than some other breeds but they are lighter under foot and are good at making use of our land that would have minimal use otherwise. We send them off around the 30 month mark which can take patience but well worth the wait for the flavour. As they are from our field to your fork, feel free to ask any questions about the meat or if you would like any inspiration for cooking, it’s a great conversation topic.
We are currently sold out of beef but the next steer is due to go away 25th March 2020. He will then be hung for at least 21 days before being butchered by Macbeth’s, Forres. If you would like to be notified when I am due to collect him, please get in touch.
If anyone is interested in pork for Autumn 2020 please get in touch by the end of March 2020 (whether it’s just thinking you will want a small cut or to pre book half or whole pigs). We are expecting weaners mid April 2020 which will stay with us until the autumn (our winters can be harsh); digging up bits of ground and being given access to fresh forage regularly as they root (to ensure the soil isn’t damaged and they get a range of nutrients). So this is no ‘fast food’ order either.
