Peelham Ruby Veal is from 8-9 month old calves which have free-grazed naturally with their own mothers as part of free-ranging Pasture-for Life herds, fulfilling their bevioural grazing and instinctive herding needs, while their mothers simultaneously fulfill their own instinctive maternal needs.
A rich source of Vit B, higher in protein, lower in fat and more digestible than beef - and with a low carbon foot print !
On nominating Peelham as a BBC Countryfile 'Food Hero' Joanna Blythman author, food writer and restaurant critic says this about Peelham Ruby Veal; "Peelham has become a byword for ethically produced meat. The team deserves a medal for educating both the public and chefs about the difference between compassionately reared veal and the white factory-farmed equivalent"
Peelham has been producing Ruby-veal from its Beef calves since 2004 and since 2017 has worked co-operatively with The Ethical Dairy at Rainton Farm providing an outlet for the 8-10 month bull calves from their dairy herd. The Ethical Dairy shares the same welfare and environmental ethos as Peelham and is also organic and pasture-for-life.
