Farmcombe Farm have a breeding herd of Traditional Hereford cattle grazing on pastures.
Their cattle and flock of Badger Face Welsh Mountain sheep are raised naturally and graze on the farm all year round. These native breeds are ideal for herb rich pastures. During the winter months they are supplemented with the best home produced hay, resulting in the best meat you will ever taste.
Because traditional breeds grow more slowly than modern breeds, the meat develops a better, more distinct taste, a characteristic recognised by many leading chefs. Nor do they need growth promoters, hormones and routinely fed antibiotics that give so much cause for concern. Not only does the meat taste so much better, but this way of farming makes for positive carbon sequestration, promotes biodiversity, and happier more contented animals.
Through our membership of the Pasture for Life Association, our beef is completely traceable. Using QR codes you can see all the information you need, from age to how many days it has been hung.
In collaboration with Sustainable Kitchen Consultants we created some healthy burgers for our Regenerative Farming Walk & Talk in July 2022, and their burger accompaniments being all UK grown and seasonal, complementing our sustainable farming methods, helped the meal be awarded the Healthy People, Healthy Planet certification mark
