Our Galloway cattle help with the heather regeneration on the hill at Troloss, where our flock of Blackface sheep graze. They are excellent converters of the many wild grasses that grow on the hill. The Galloway breed is unchanged since Roman times, when they were recorded by the invaders. They have a thick double black coat, making them hardy enough to live in the extremes of the weather in the hills of Dumfries and Galloway. Our winters can be very long and cold, with snow clinging onto the high hills at our farm well into April. The summers are often warmer than in the north of Scotland but the stocky Galloways take it all in their stride as they roam our 6,000 acres of wild hillside.
Our beef is hung for 3 - 4 weeks
In 2015 our Bull Troloss Impeccable won 1st prize in the (2 year old Champion) and (Male Champion) at Castle Douglas Bull sale, In July 2010 we won 3 stars Gold for our sirloin from the Great Taste Awards (Guild of Fine Food) and in November 2008 we won the best Galloway Cow at Carlisle.
The mixed box of beef cuts that we will send out fresh should satisfy those hankering after some excellent Scottish well hung beef direct from the hills of Scotland.
"The Aged Galloway beef last week was the best I have ever tasted anywhere, the flavours keep coming and are persistent for a long time on the palate. We did some tastings and the staff were all amazed. Customer feedback is also very good."Peter Weeden, Head Chef, Paternoster Chophouse, London
Our veal comes from my brother Percy's herd of Pedigree Ayrshire dairy cattle, welfare friendly, producing fine rose veal. See Photo on the veal page.
