Thread: Any cattle farmers/small beef producers on here?

  1. #1

    Any cattle farmers/small beef producers on here?

    I have the chance of some beef from a lady who rears her own cattle where i work and was wondering if this deal is generally ok and what cuts of beef would be best.

    Basically she will do a 50 pack of around 14-15lb in weight of any cuts of beef I like, be it all steaks, or a mixture of roasting joints, steaks etc? I'm not big on which are the best beef joints so I thought about getting a load of rump steaks at 8oz each and topside roasting joints.

    I've already had half a pig off her which is very nice so even if it's slightly over the odds cost wise I'd rather have good quality meat for the money!

    What ya reckon guys?

    Quality not quantity,if you chose what you want all the better.
    roughly 8 a kilo seems a good deal to me.

    Will be slaughtering our own beef tis time next year and I've calculated something like 7.50 to 8 per kilo.
    10kilo or just over 22lb box @ 75.

    Fore Rib on the bone

    http://www.downonthefarm.co.uk/

    There is a price list on the order form page. It may be expensive but its the best and has been hung for a month.
    We were hoping to have home grown venison on the order page but Mark has been slacking a bit!!!!!

    I prefer a fore rib on the bone as a roasting joint .. much more flavour than topside or silverside but remember that it doesn`t take much in joints to make 15lbs.
    Steak is very much a personal taste thing but Rump is my preference.


    50 pack of around 14-15lb sounds good to me.

    Brisket one of the best flavour, if it was me I would offer to have the cheaper joints and more of them for the same price, brisket, stewing steaks, and mince. Remember if buyin rib of beef on the bone you don,t get much.

    The price of live cattle is high just now so I would say grab it whilst you can. Go for the popes eye and sirloin steaks, salmon cut for roasting. Make sure it's a prime beast and not an old mincing coo

    Sounds good to me if you get down to Devon again.
