The Hereford is most at home on lush grass meadows, like those found in the fertile Welsh Marches. However, this premium, heritage breed is also found in the Dales, grazing on the flat valley bottoms and converting pasture into the luscious beef that The Hereford is best known for.
This breed is distinguished by the neat layer of fat found on its cuts, providing an unrivalled succulence and a hearty, beefy flavour.
Tasting Notes: Classic, Beefy, Deep
The Galloway is a hardy, heritage breed produces noticeably lean meat.
While it thrives across the globe, this premium breed is most at home in the pristine uplands of Northern England and the Scottish Borders. In this natural environment, cattle mature at their own pace on wild grazing, meaning the beef’s flavour has chance to develop naturally, producing a succulent character and a gamey flavour.
Tasting Notes: Creamy, Traditional, Grassy
The Blue Grey
The Blue Grey is a beautiful beast. This crossbreed brings together the succulent flavour of the rugged Galloway and the creamy character and marbling of the Shorthorn.
Originally bred in Northumberland, this distinctive breed is happiest on the valley bottoms of the Dales, grazing on lush, fertile pastures.
Tasting Notes: Herbal, Mellow, Rounded
It’s safe to say that the Aberdeen Angus is Britain’s favourite breed – and it’s easy to see why!
As well as being popular here in the UK, this premium breed has also earned a great reputation in Argentina, the US, and South Africa, thanks to its even marbling and rich, indulgent flavour.
Due to its quality and popularity, our trusted butcher hands prime Angus beef all year round, always sourced from grass-fed, free-range herds.
Tasting Notes: Rich, Creamy, Indulgent
