Three Harbours Beef is available fresh and direct via a home delivery box scheme and from local shops and restaurants.

All the beef animals are born either on coastal plain farms or within the local area. They are reared on grass and most on their mothers' milk and grass for the first six months and, after weaning, their diet is predominantly flower and herbal rich salt tinted grass which contributes greatly to the taste and quality of the meat.

Cattle are reared naturally on marshes and pasture where they are allowed to mature slowly, enjoy two summers at grass and are kept until around two to two and a half years old - long by modern standards. The scheme is ethically and environmentally friendly, with happy cows, low food miles and helping to protect and support the wildlife on the marshes including some endangered species.

As well as taking two years to produce, the meat is hung traditionally to enhance its tenderness and flavour before being prepared. There can be few products which take so long to prepare, yet offer so much value for money.
