You can choose the type of beef you would like to order by clicking one of our ethically-reared cows shown on the home page. Opt for either the large or small ‘premium meat box’ and then, alongside our standard cuts, customize your preferred combination of minced meat products.
The cow you have 'bought into' will only be sent for slaughter once it has been 100% crowd-purchased; this currently takes about a week in England. It will take a further two weeks for the cow to be butchered and its meat matured for premium taste and texture. Thus, the average time between order and delivery comes to about three weeks. Throughout the process we'll send you four email updates:

It’s possible to change your delivery details until 08:00am on the Friday morning before your delivery week.
Our meat boxes will be delivered by our trusted courier, ‘DPD’. Once your meat box has been dispatched and is en route to your given address, we encourage you to communicate directly with ‘DPD’ via their app concerning your delivery. If for instance you know you won’t be at home to receive your meatbox, you can ask for it to be delivered to a neighbour or left in a safe place; you can upload a picture onto their app to show them where this is exactly. If you don’t give a preference in advance, and you aren’t at home to take delivery in person, DPD will try a neighbour or safe place of their choosing, and they’ll let you know via their app.
Sorry! Unfortunately not. It’s important to us that all parts of the cow are used and that nothing is wasted. For this reason we process the cow lengthways, from front to back, meaning that each meat box will contain an equal number of portions. However, the selection of minced products in your meat box is up to you: you can choose from mince, burger patties and sausages. You’re welcome to select these products in whatever ratio suits you best.
From each cow we make enough portions and products to fill at least 30 meat boxes. Certain parts of the cow aren't included, simply because the quantites aren't big enough to divide into 30+ portions.
Besides the standard cuts and slices of prime beef which make up your meatbox, you can choose 5 packets of mince product (5 for the small premium box, or 13 for the large premium box) across our 3 different product types: Minced beef, Beef Burgers or Chipolata Sausages.
When purchasing the small premium box for example, you could opt for: five packets of solely Minced beef, or alternatively, 3 packs of Chipolata Sausages and 2 packs of Beef Burgers. Another combination could be 1 pack of minced beef, 2 packs of Chipolata Sausages and 2 packs of beef burgers…(the possibilities are endless!).
We are proud to partner with local farmers committed to the highest standards of animal welfare, environmental stewardship and ethical farming.
Whilst each of our farmers has their own set of unique practices (often passed down generations), none administer hormones or preventative antibiotics to their cattle. This means no guesswork or risk when it comes to nasty long-term side effects when your family enjoys our meat.
Through Spring, Summer and part of Autumn, our cows graze in the pasture and can choose to shelter in an open barn. When a cow becomes pregnant, her calf can stay by her side for six to nine months after the birth.
All of our cows eat a mixture of grass and herbs, with a few tasty extras such as wheat that our farmers often grow themselves.
The only reason these farmers do not have organic certification is that they use their own grass instead of certified feed – but, in reality, things don’t get more natural than fresh, chemical-free pasture grass!
Your cow will be slaughtered by way of captive bolt at a small-scale artisan butcher. Because we care about our animals’ well-being, your cow will be given 3 days to get to know its butcher’s voice, behaviour and touch, and adjust to its surroundings so slaughter takes place without stress.
You’ll find two expiry dates on each individual packet inside your meatbox: one for when the meat products are refrigerated and the other for when frozen.
From the date of delivery, we recommend your meatbox be stored in a refrigerator for a total of 2-3 days before spoiling. When stored in a freezer, your meat products will remain fresh for up to 1 year.
After defrosting our meat, you can store the sealed packet in the fridge for 2-3 days.
Our meat is packaged efficiently, so it should fit in a single drawer of a standard household freezer. A small meat box (3.5kg) takes up half a drawer.
The quality of our meat won’t deteriorate when you freeze it. When we allow the meat to mature, it loses a little of its moisture. And that's why it can be stored in the freezer for up to a year without losing its taste or texture.
The best way to defrost your meat is to move it from freezer to fridge one day before you plan to cook it, so it can thaw slowly. Place a plate or tray underneath, to catch any melting ice.
We don’t use any E Numbers, sugar, binding agents, dyes, preservatives, or chemicals often found in supermarket meats. Whilst all our meat is gluten-free, please note that our meat products are prepared in an environment where gluten is processed at other times. Our meat is also 100% lactose-free.
We add salt, pepper and other seasonings to some of our products, such as beef burgers and sausages. There is a label on each individual packet that lists the ingredients and shows the nutritional value of the product.
