Are the weights of each cut exact?
The weights mentioned per cut and slice serve only as indicative figures. Our artisan butchers cut by eye to deliver the highest quality and least waste possible so weights may vary ever so slightly.
What additives are there in the meat?
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, sausages and meatballs. There is a label on each individual packet that lists the ingredients and shows the nutritional value of the product.

What is the shelf life of the meat?
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 you consume the meat within 2-3 days if you choose to refrigerate it. When stored in a freezer however, how most our customers store their meat, 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.
How should I defrost my meat?
The best way to defrost 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.
However, because our meat is vacuum packed, this means a very (very) handy alternative method is to simply take it out the freezer and place it in a bowl filled with cold tap water for 15-20 minutes! Easy, peasy.
P.S. We strongly recommend against defrosting your meat in the microwave because it heavily deteriorates its quality, making it very tough!
Is the meat organic?
We offer beef from both organic certified and non-organic farmers.
Regardless of certification, our cows eat a mixture of grass and herbs, and sometimes a few tasty extras such as wheat that our farmers often grow themselves.
The only reason not all our farmers are organic certified is that some use their own grass instead of certified feed – but, in reality, things don’t get more natural than fresh, chemical-free grass!
