All our well cared part grass-fed beef is Hereford, a slow-growing breed native to Herefordshire but thrives in Norfolk. Our Hereford cattle are 70% grass-fed for their entire lives and 30% farm fed. We bring our cattle inside for part of the winter feeding them on our own natural produced food off Braydeston farm. Here they are warm and also enable young calfs to be born in a small and easily cared for environment instead of the depths of the marshes.
Our Braydeston Cattle are slowly grown until they naturally reach maturity at around 31-36 months old. Slow growing native breeds and farming in harmony with nature helps us to achieve consistent taste, texture and excellent marbling in all our grass-fed Hereford beef giving it wonderfully rounded depth of flavour.
We have specifically chosen a breed that are native to this part of the world. We do not rear Hereford Beef because they are fashionable, we grow this traditional native breed because they are perfectly suited to the terrain and climate here in the South East.
Our Herefords can digest the Norfolk Marsh land grass and convert it into protein with zero inputs. This allows land to be farmed and communities to be sustained where otherwise there would be very little resource available.
Turning a rugged and difficult land into an abundant rich landscape that produces nourishing, healthy, high welfare food that simultaneously becomes a haven for wildlife.
Also the Hereford breed is calm and considerate, making them perfect grazing animals for a farm with a lot of footpaths spent to the public.
