Pasture For life certified farm

Pasture For Life

We are excited to announce that this week we have been certified with Pasture For Life.

We have always only ever fed our beautiful shorthorn cattle 100% grass as nature intended. But you can now shop with complete confidence in the knowledge that we have been audited.

Why did we want to become Pasture For Life Certified you may ask? Well the term ‘Grass Fed’ has no official definition in the UK and is often used to describe animals who are raised on an 80% grass based diet and then topped up with concentrate feed and grain in the later stages of life to help add fat to ‘finish’ them.

We wanted our customers to have the assurance that when we say our cattle are 100% grass fed we really do mean it! Only meat and dairy displaying the Pasture Mark comes with a guarantee the animals have been fed a completely natural diet.

In the coming weeks you will see a QR code appear on the label on each and every piece of meat you buy from us. This is known as Pasture For Life Tracks. A scan of the QR code will give you the history of that animal and will include;

Tracks ID Number

Breed Of The Animal

Gender (Shorthorn)

Age At Slaughter

The Farm It Was Raised On (Always Treway!)

Date of Slaughter

Abbatoir and Butcher

The Tracks function is going to be brilliant but there is quite a lot of work to do uploading the details of each and every individual animal we have on the farm into the system so please be patient!

In the meantime the new QR code will take you to our website.
