When I spoke recently to Kirsty Clarke of multi award winning Waterloo Cottage Farm in Great Oxendon, I asked how Waterloo Beef differs from most other meat suppliers and how she is planning for the Christmas season.
This is what she said:
"We advocate feeding our beef on pure pasture/grass as it lowers the cholesterol level and increases the omega 3 level of the meat. This is better for the animal and better for us.
Any meat from these animals has had no antibiotics and has grazed on chemical free pasture.
Only one producer is organic certified.
The supply of beef over the Christmas period is a challenge due to the demand. This year we are allocating beef on a first come first served basis.
In order for the beef to be hung for 28 days, orders are needed by 22 November. When we have allocated all our pasture fed beef to customers, we will move onto beef that has been locally grown, but, we cannot guarantee it to be pasture fed or have had no antibiotics during its life.
All beef will have been aged for 21-30 days."
