Our farming company Newgap ltd are proud to be accredited producers of "Pasture for life" See more on www.pastureforlife.org
“If it’s beef you're after then we can provide the best, healthiest,
naturally reared with no grain or Soya fed to the cattle "
The "in" phrase is ..."regenerative farming".. where we do our best for nature & biodiversity.. each farm is different in their approach to this but the majority are trying hard to mitigate the use of chemicals and artificial fertilisers and thus this helps the health of the soil.
Our pastures are permanent and diverse in species and we feed them the manure from our winter cattle pens in the spring and Autumn.
We minimise disturbance of the soil so it holds the carbon in place while the soil depth and fertility grows, the carbon footprint is therefore lower.
Our Longhorn beef of the 2022 grass growing season will be available on Saturday's throughout the late spring,Summer and Autumn.
Native breed English Longhorn cattle are born and reared on our farm. We have introduced some traditional Herefords to the grazing herd giving us an alternative breed with an ability to "cross" the breeds for beef production which both grow and perform well on grass alone.
The Withybed herd of English Longhorns based at Coopers Hill, Alvechurch move to many reserves across Worcestershire for Wildlife trusts, National Trust and private bodies throughout the grass growing period. This is conservation grazing as the project sites are usually SSSI’s (Sites of special scientific interest), SINC’s (sites of importance for Nature conservation) LNR’s, NNR’s (local & national nature reserves).
The cattle are on site to assist in management by grazing, nibbling or browsing of scrub, hedges and trees and ultimately this gives the cattle natural trace elements and vitamins, and encourages biodiversity by the introduction of the grazing animal to uproductive non intensive land.
Newgap ltd the farming company are approved producers with the Pasture Fed Livestock Association. See more here: www.pastureforlife.org
