Great Taste Awards 2017

We've had some very good news in this year's competition.  We are very proud to announce a total of Five 1 Gold Stars have been awarded and One 2 Gold Stars to the products we submitted, putting us in the top 35% of the 12,366 entries that were judged.  

One Gold Star means "Simply Delicious - A food that delivers fantastic flavour".   The judges thought we merited this award for our Rose Veal T-Bone Steak, our Rose Veal Osso Buco, and two of our best selling Biltong flavours ....... But the jewel in our crown is the Two Gold Stars which are awarded to "Outstanding Products - Above and Beyond Delicious"  Less than 15% of the 12,366 entries will achieve this rating, and no surprises for guessing that this award was given to our Welsh Wagyu Rib Eye Steak!




All other orders will cost just £7.95, upgraded to a Before Noon delivery free of charge ! (Highlands and Islands excepted - sorry guys!)

We have a brand new range of Galician Beef from the Basque Country in North West Spain - this fabulous meat is rapidly being snapped up by some of our best Michelin Chefs who describe it as "Stunning" and the flavours "Insane" !!! 

Dairy Cattle are retired out to pasture in the fields and forests of Galicia and there they stay until they are 8 - 10 years old - what an amazing story!   Also from the Basque Country we have introduced Iberico Pork, which can only come from black pigs of the Iberian breed whose unique origin can be traced back to ancient times.

Highly Recommended


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
