“If it’s beef your after then we can provide the best, healthiest,
naturally reared with no grain or Soya fed to the cattle "
Our Longhorn beef of the 2021 grass growing season will be available on Saturday's throughout the Summer and Autumn. This year has seen a slow start to the grass growing season and thus our fattening of cattle from the spring grass has been delayed We are trying to have beef ready for late May 21 but will keep you posted.
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 herd 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
