Welcome to Alternative Meats - Deliciously Different

Highly Recommended

 We're very excited to be introducing Goosnargh Ducks into our range in the coming weeks.   The family have farmed at Swainson House in the picturesque Lancastrian village of Goosnargh on the edge of the Ribble Valley, since the 1960's.   When the iconic Reg Johnson and his step-brother Bud Swarbrick joined forces in 1985, their innovative approach growing and mixing grain from their own farmland produced astonishing results, and they soon gained a reputation for being the leading suppliers of corn-fed poultry to some of the finest chefs around the country.


You can see, therefore, that their products fit in really well on our website and beautifully complement our product range, as we have not previously sold corn-fed British poultry.  We will be selling both whole ducks and duck breasts, packed singly, and will be in a position to supply you with fresh product if you follow our ordering guidelines, although we will always keep a frozen stock for those emergencies that occur for the busy home chef!

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
