Mendip Red Poll Cattle

We are passionate about our Red Poll cattle and have very high standards of animal welfare and farm with respect for the environment.

Our beef animals have grown naturally to maturity fed on grass on the Mendips, there are only two Red Poll herds in Somerset.

All our beef is hung for 28 days and is dry aged The ribs, loins and rumps are aged on the bone in a specially controlled atmosphere for four to six weeks. The humidity and temperature is controlled and there is a Himalayan Rock Salt wall that allows the meat to slowly dry developing a wonderful depth of flavour and becoming increasingly more and more tender.

The process produces a  rich, full flavour meat from these grass fed cattle. Typically the meat has higher levels of polyunsaturated, omega-3 fats than the more intensively reared, grain fed continental breeds.

The Red Poll Cow is a traditional native, rare breed, British dual purpose breed (beef & milk).

Red Poll cattle are protected and promoted by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.

Eating rare breed beef helps to ensure the survival of the breed. This may seem a contradiction but providing a market for the beef also provides the farmer with the incentive to breed more cattle.
