This Heritage Breed Meat Box is from Jon Watson's Pedigree Herds of Belted Galloway Cattle and Herdwick Sheep and Bowland Pork's herd of outdoor bred and reared Large White X pigs.
These Traditional Native Breeds have become "rare breeds" since the introduction of supermarkets. These breeds of cattle and sheep grow more slowly but thrive on fell plants, grasses and heather on the Lakeland fells. Whilst they take longer to mature, the resulting taste of the beef and hogget they produce is really delicious.
Grass Fed Beef has been shown to contain higher levels of beneficial omega 3 and other unsaturated fats and lower levels of saturated fat than grain fed beef. ‘Hogget’ is sheep meat between 1-2 years old. Hogget is delicious and benefits from the tenderness of a relatively young animal along with some of the richer flavour of older sheep meat.
As Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall said of Jon Watson's meat 'Their Herdwick Hogget is among the finest I have tasted’.
Bowland Outdoor Reared Pork is an established family-run business based in the Forest of Bowland, a breathtaking Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in North West England. They keep a small herd, all outdoors fed on a natural cereal based diet and organic cheese whey. Pigs kept how they used to be, tasting like they used to taste! Award winning gammons cured in brown sugars and salts.
