Welsh Black Beef – NOW!

  • May 25, 2016 8:54 am

AND NOW – WHAT YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR (we hope!) – IT’S OUR WELSH BLACK BEEF SEASON.
Remember, our beef is from indigenous cattle that we breed, that graze on the hill all their lives (and they have good natural lives), and are taken to an abattoir that we trust to treat them well at the last. Then the meat is hung long enough and cut by our expert local butcher. That all adds up to a superb taste that you won’t get from the supermarket.
So we can offer lean beef as: –
* Bargain Boxes – mixed eighth of beef, all joints, at about £220
* Selection Boxes – about £60
* Individual joints, can be cut to order (but contact us asap)
The beef will be ready chilled for collection (visit the farm) or delivery locally, or by overnight courier this weekend, or frozen after that.
We also have frozen Tamworth pork, traditional pig, slow grown and tastier. Teg and mutton coming soon
Please phone / email Barbara, confirm your order if already booked – 01495 755557 / ba.warren@hotmail.co.uk

Breaking News (as they say) – our pigs did very well at the Royal Welsh Spring Festival – our young boar was best Tamworth male, and best of all breeds at show, and so has qualified for the UK national final of Young Pig of the Year in September. Great joy! It’s not often that Tamworths win over other, more ‘modern’, breeds

USK FARMER’S MARKET TODAY

  • November 7, 2015 10:33 pm

Evening – recovering after a busy Market today, thanks to all our customers, both for your custom and the  chat, we do enjoy the social side! (Stallholders too). Particularly, thanks to one customer for 4 bags of unwanted acorns, our pigs love them! Early morning was particularly hard work, sloshing about loading and unloading in the pouring rain. At least it stopped for the return, and it’s certainly mild for November We still have some lamb/teg joints, and pork and beef (frozen) – and for the next market (21st Nov) we shall have fresh beef – but some of it is sold already, so do give Barbara a call if you wish to make sure of getting what you want. Free delivery locally to Pontypool. Also call us for Christmas orders – if you want large joints of beef or pork, please give us plenty of notice so that our butcher can cut them as you wish. We will have a limited supply of Gammon and bacon, and pork stuffing meat – again we have orders in hand already. Hope to see you on 21st.

SPRING – LAMBS & PIGLETS

  • March 20, 2014 9:30 pm

New lambs - in the shed for a few days

A Tamworth family outing

At last the sun! Some lovely days, for once coinciding with our lambing season.
We shall be at the Usk Farmers Market on Sat 5th April with fresh pork, bacon, mutton, and some frozen meat

SUMMER SHOW SEASON IS OVER

  • August 18, 2013 5:04 pm

We’ve finished the round of Spring / Summer pig shows we support every year, and we were pretty successful. We attained female Tamworth champ at the Three Counties, and were judged best at the show for the national Junior Pig of the Year final. Our young boar was male Tamworth champ at the Royal Welsh, and we won best progeny group and pair. We had to travel to the Great Yorkshire Show for Pig of the Year final, but in that exalted company we didn’t get the crown! And we clocked up quite a number of other red rosettes for class wins at these shows, the Royal Welsh Spring Festival, and the Royal Bath & West Show.

Winning progeny groups was probably most satisfying, it proves our breeding is going the right way, and this is reinforced by the demand for our young Tamworths for breeding, we’ve sold a lot this year in the UK, and even overseas – two exported to Germany recently!

So we’ve missed quite a few Farmers Markets, but we’ll be at Usk FM now until Christmas. Additionally, we just sold another whole pig to London, having found a reliable courier, but of course we sell most meat locally, so if you cannot get to Usk FM, contact us and we can usually deliver in the Gwent area. Or come up to the farm and select your pork, beef and lamb / mutton from our freezers – and see our animals and the superb views (if the weather is good).  Our prices are very competitive.
