This week we will be butchering some great grass fed Red Poll beef from Robert Bower who farms at Clayton West, on the way to Huddersfield. The Red Poll breed are thought to be a result of crossbreeding between the now extinct breeds of Norfolk Red and Suffolk Dun. They were given their name due to the fact they are naturally hornless which is helpful for farmers who worry about keeping horned cattle with other animals on the farm. The taste and texture of Red Poll beef is considered excellent, with strong flavour and high levels of tenderness.
Diced and cubed stewing steak ideal for stews, casseroles, pies and curries. This option has a lot of flavour but must be cooked very slowly to ensure optimum tenderness. All our stew is from grass fed traditional breed cattle, dry aged on the bone for 21 days before being expertly butchered to your requirements.
