Our organic beef is born, reared & butchered here on our farm
What is special about Higher Hacknell organic beef? We think the secret is producing it ourselves, from breeding our beautiful herd of South Devons on our Devon pastures to hanging and cutting the meat in our farm butchery.
We started breeding our herd of South Devon cattle in 1985 and can trace each animal in the herd. They are suckled on their mothers’ milk and then graze on our natural organic grass pastures, with all their feed produced at Higher Hacknell Farm. We select each animal for the perfect ‘finish’ with great marbling .They are slaughtered locally to reduce stress and then brought back to our farm butchery where the meat is hung for at least three weeks for superb tenderness and to enhance the wonderful flavour of the beef.
We have a huge range of quality cuts, from the traditional shin and skirt to the more unusual Tomahawk steak and onglet. If you have a particular favourite cut, then just ask us and talk to our butcher.
When you taste our beef you will understand why we take so much care and effort to produce it and why it has won so many awards.
