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.
All our beef is frozen and vacuum packed. It has been hung for at least 21 days.

If anyone is interested in pork for 2020 please get in touch soon (if interested or to pre book half or whole pigs). I am looking to get some weaners this Spring, they will then stay with us until the autumn (our winters can be harsh); digging up bits of ground and being given 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.
Hogget (18 -24 month old sheep)
Leg roasts £10/kg (one full leg and one half leg remaining)
Rolled shoulder £9/kg
Neck £4 each
Chops (packs of four) £8/kg
Flank £5/kg (great for stews and soups).
