Pete was strongly recommended to us by his long time friend Matt Lampey — who, as I’m sure you know, is one of our nearest and dearest founding farmers! So, when he told us to go down and have a look at Pete’s farm in Crazelowman we went with high expectations and we weren’t left disappointed! Like Matt, Pete rears a beautiful herd of suckler cows based on Limousin and other cross breeds raised for exclusively beef.
Pete’s livestock live in incredibly spacious environments — balancing their time in straw-bedded barns and outdoor pastures depending on weather conditions.
Pete believes that being able to forage, socialise and express their natural behaviours is essential for the well-being of cattle and the quality of beef they ultimately produce. When they’re able to exercise and live in a stress-free environment, they’re much happier, healthier, and deliver beef that is tastier too! What’s more, Under Pete’s watch, GMOs or animal by-products, and routine antibiotics and growth hormones are strictly a no-no — 'Au naturel' all the way!
