Reared on our family farm in Dorset on the Jurassic Coast, our beef animals are free to roam the fields and have a natural diet of fresh grass. Here at Fossil Farm, we leave our beef to mature for 18 months to produce high quality meat that has exquisite rich taste and outstanding marbling. We hang our beef on the bone for a minimum of 21 days, which enhances the tenderness and gives it mouth-watering flavour. With such high demand for our delicious meat, we source some of our beef from other local farms in Dorset and the West Country. We carefully select our beef farmers and make sure all of the beef is grass-fed, free-range and reared to the highest welfare standards.
Not only does our beef taste incredible, it is very beneficial to your health and is an important part of a balanced diet. Red meat is a great source of protein, rich in amino acids that are essential to build and repair muscle and tissue. High in Iron, Zinc, Vitamins B1 (Thiamine) and B2 (Riboflavin) red meat also strengthens your immune system, nervous system, aids digestion and promotes healthy skin and eyes.
Grass-fed beef has higher amounts of minerals and antioxidant vitamins such as Vitamins B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin) and Vitamin E. More omega 3 fatty acids and more conjugated linoleic acid which reduce heart disease, cancer risks and increase overall heart health were found in grass-fed been when compared with other beef. It has also been found that grass-fed beef has less total at and is lower in saturated fat than other beef, which makes it the best meat you can eat!
