RED RUBY DEVON BEEF

Red Ruby Devon are native cattle that produce excellent premium-quality beef. Our animals are home-bred and live outdoors the whole year round. They are grass-fed & only need hay in winter to keep them growing and in good condition.

We see and care for the animals every day of their lives: they are born here, grow up here and we take them directly from here to the abattoir ourselves. We go to a small, modern facility where we can see that the animals are well handled and tended to before slaughter. If when you choose meat, you care about traceability and animal health & welfare throughout their whole lives, this has to be as good as it gets.

The cattle graze permanent grassland pastures, improve soil health and convert the available grass into meat. Hay for their winter feed is home-produced and we use no artificial fertilizers, so the environmental impact for the whole cycle is as low as it can be for beef production.

We take them to slaughter between 22 and 26 months old: this extra age over commercial beef combines with the grass diet to provide tender, delicious meat, with a good marbling of fat. Grass-fed beef is high in the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids - much better for you than intensive, grain-finished beef. The carcase is then hung for just under 3 weeks (often referred to now as dry-ageing), before being butchered and the individual cuts vacuum-packed. We collect the meat from the abattoir on the day of butchering and it is fresh and ready for you to collect from 4pm that afternoon. Being vacuum-packed and labelled it is ready cook or to go straight into your freezer.

We usually have fresh beef available in the spring and summer. We also sell the frozen beef later in the year - cuts and quantities according to availability.
