Our fillet steak comes from slow-maturing grass fed beef animals that are reared on farms in Sussex and Hampshire. This fillet steak is matured on the bone for a minimum of 28 days to ensure full flavour and tenderness. It is cut from the centre of the muscle, to make for easy cooking.
We source our local beef from Chalcroft Farm near the River Hamble, where the Owton family has farmed for over 750 years.
The beef is aged on the bone for a minimum of 28 days. By dry-aging the beef, moisture evaporates from the meat leading to a greater concentration of flavour and taste, while the beef’s natural enzymes break down the connective tissue to create more tender meat.
We get full traceability each week, so we know exactly where our beef comes from. Let us know if you would like details of your specific beef. They include breeds such as the native Sussex, Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and Dexter for their traditional slow grown qualities of flavour and they are slaughtered at the local abbatoir.
