Buy our Naturally reared Red Ruby Devon Beef
"The Red Ruby Cattle have an excellent mild temperament and are extremely well adapted to unfertilised grazing. Bred to withstand harsh winters, they grow more slowly and have natural ability to put on fat reserves. It is this natural growth pace and natural diet that makes the close grained, well marbled meat, British beef at its best. They simply produce the best beef that I have ever tasted."
Much acclaimed by leading restaurateurs and chefs, Red Ruby Devon beef takes some beating in terms of taste, texture and tenderness.
That it is unmatched in flavour owes much to the Red Rubys' ability to naturally lay down intra-muscular fat in the meat which produces the trademark marbling and finer texture.
Whilst "supermarket cattle" are normally finished in timescales as short as 12 months the Red Ruby takes just a little longer and our beef is often not mature until between 24 and 30 months.
This longer and more natural process of rearing, avoiding intensive farming methods, feed additives and bulking agents, ensures that the Red Ruby beef is probably the finest that one can buy today.
Our cattle lead peaceful lives and longer ones than many other breeds and the short trip to our local abattoir ensures that any potential stress associated with the process of beef production is greatly reduced.
And just as the process of allowing cattle to mature takes time, so too does the process of producing quality beef. All of our beef is hung for between three and four weeks before being expertly butchered and prepared.
