Here we are in February already!  And 19th February is a very special day for us .....It's our Birthday!!

 

On this day, 17 years ago, we launched Alternative Meats Ltd - coinciding with the announcement of a Foot and Mouth epidemic in the UK that was to blight the farming communities that we worked alongside for many months ahead.    Not a terribly good start for a new business, but we somehow not only survived the trials and tribulations that this dreadful news brought us - we have also gone on from strength to strength to where we find ourselves today, a well recognised and respected name in the world of meat, still working alongside our wonderful farmers to bring the very best produce to our loyal customers.

 

This coming year will be seeing an increase in the amount of Deli-style products that we have been developing, using our Welsh Wagyu Beef and Mangalitza Pork, after our pre-Christmas pilot tests were a huge success - such goodies as the Mangalitza Gammons, Pancetta and Cured Lardo.

 

The latest release to hit our shelves are the Welsh Wagyu Beef Beersticks - the perfect snack to enjoy with a craft ale, cold beer or nice glass of red wine in the evening!

Wagyu Cattle were originally bred in Japan, and are renowned for producing beef of a superior eating quality - if you like, Wagyu is the Rolls Royce or Dom Perignon of the Beef world.   The unique taste and unctuous, buttery texture are due to the marbling of fat within the meat, fat which will begin to melt at room temperature.   It is also magically low in mono-unsaturates, which means you can relax and enjoy it without worrying about your health!

Our Welsh Wagyu cattle are reared by the forward-thinking Ifor Humphreys in Montgomeryshire, where they graze on the clover rich pastures of his family farm.   They are finished on grass or hay and a blended grain ration grown on the neighbourhood farm, and Ifor also gives them a daily pint of locally brewed Monty's Beer and a little massage, echoing the traditions followed by farmers from Kobe, in Japan, who made Kobe Beef famous.


  • Welsh Wagyu Beef Roasting Joint Min. 1kg - Dry Aged

    Due to the wonderful marbling of these cattle, we have found that the roasting joints are beautifully tender and succulent, requiring little preparation. Just remember to cook from room temperature and to rest for 10 - 15 mins after removing from the oven. Learn More
