Peelham's organic cattle are fed and grazed pasture for life (we are certified by the Pasture For Life Association) to produce a beautifully slow fattened grass beef. We use Aberdeen Angus as our core breeding stock which add to the excellent flavour with an even distribution of intra-muscular fat.
Our cattle graze our semi-upland coastal pastures throughout the year other than over-wintering calving cows and young cattle which are sheltered in straw-bedded open barns. Winter-housed cattle are fed our naturally fermented grass harvested during the summer to create a dry silage. Carcasses are aged for four weeks to make the most of the flavour imparted by the grass-rearing and the breeding.
Some 95% of our livestock are born and reared on the farm. Co-operatively we work with a small network of other organic and Pasture-for-life farmers who provide the remainder of our stock.
