If you are looking for somewhere to buy pasture for life beef that is organic and sustainably farmed for your butchery, farm shop or for your own meals, choose Peelham Farm.
Peelham's organic cattle are fed and grazed according to the Pasture-For-Life association's standards to produce beautifully, naturally fattened grass-fed beef. Pasture-fed diets are nutritionally better for animal welfare than grain-fed beef as they contain higher amounts of Omega 3. Being grass-fed also makes our free-range organic beef suitable for paleo diets, and many of our products are available in gluten-free options.
DID YOU KNOW: Meat from 100% pasture-fed organic grasslands, is proven to be significantly more nutritious than meat from main-stream systems and qualifies as a source of Omega-3 (Univ Newcastle research 2021; https://doi.org/10.1016/j.fufo.2021.100012)
Our British organic beef comes from free-range farms using sustainable farming methods. This makes them more environmentally friendly than grain-fed varieties, therefore buying grass-fed beef is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.
We also use Aberdeen Angus as our core breeding stock which adds to the excellent flavour with an even distribution of intra-muscular fat.
Our cattle graze our semi-upland coastal pastures throughout the year, with the exception of over winter where calving cows and young cattle are sheltered in straw-bedded open barns. Winter-housed cattle are fed our naturally fermented grass harvested during the summer to create dry silage. Carcasses are aged for four weeks to make the most of the flavour imparted by the grass-rearing and breeding.
Some 95% of our livestock are born and reared on the farm. Cooperatively, we work with a small network of other organic meat and Pasture-For-Life farmers who provide the remainder of our stock.
Perfect for your next BBQ or when you are rustling up some beef burgers, you can choose from a variety of our quality grass-fed meat products, including:
Beef sirloin steaks
Beef rump steaks
Beef fillet steak
Beef rib-eye steak
