Langton Arms Butchery
With over 5 generations of farming experience, the Cossins family proudly hand rear Aberdeen Angus and Hereford cows on their family farm in Tarrant Rawston, Dorset. Along with locally sourced pork and lamb, all the meat is expertly cut by hand, leaving only the best meat and fat for taste.
Tarrant Valley beef is sourced from cattle that are grazing for most of the year on the naturally lush and mineral rich grass of the valley. In the depths of winter they are housed in dry conditions where they continue to be fed a natural diet.
Their beef is matured and hung on the bone for at least 21 days, which allows the fibres of the meat to break down. This natural process makes their beef incredibly tender and it is how our meat gets its old fashioned flavour
Piddle Valley Chickens
“Piddle Valley Chicken are given time to grow slowly on a natural diet with corn, grass & clover giving them their traditional flavour, succulent meat & superior textural quality. Living in grassy paddocks and in small flocks, our chicken have plenty of room to stretch their wings, dust down and forage for bugs amongst the clover.”
Piddle Valley Chicken have custom made houses for protection from the elements and Mr Fox, these houses are mobile so we move them to fresh ground every two weeks. They are constructed from metal and plastic rather than wood which means they can be thoroughly cleaned after each group, maintaining high hygiene standards.
Welfare standards are very important to them when rearing our chicken and also during slaughter which is why Kev chooses to process all of their chicken himself on site. This not only reduces the stress caused to the birds during long journeys to an abattoir and keeps the food miles minimal but, most importantly, as the chicken are cared for by one man from day one to their last, we can ensure the birds have been treated humanely. Kev is licensed to dispatch of birds swiftly and effectively with little stress which shows is the quality of the meat.
