RARE AND NATIVE BREED
Thanks to an increase in industrial farming and cross-breeding, popular in the late 50s and early 60s, the majority of rare-breeds in Britain saw their numbers in a steep decline. Demand for European and Westernised breeds, which increased yield for the mass market, was bigger than ever, and those animals who didn't show the characteristics associated with quick growth were forgotten.
Our Black Label Range is committed to stocking rare and native-breeds only; slow grown animals with fantastic meat qualities, and helping to re-create a demand. Breeds we see coming through our shop include Highland, Belted Galloway, Longhorn (beef), Tamworth and Old Spot (pork) and Blackface and Texel (lamb).
