Our Cows

Our award winning meat comes from our pure Sussex suckler herd

We have around 50 suckler cows on the farm, some of them more than 10 years old! The cows spend all summer outside on the pastures and there is a good chance you will see them or even observe when we move them from field to field.

Biodynamic cows keep their horns. Horns are important for the cow’s digestion

They are purely grass fed and all hay and silage they eat is produced on the farm to the highest standards.

The cows usually have one calf a year which stays with the mother for at least 9 months when the calf joins the group of youngstock. The beef is raised to 27 months old.
