The Riverside Beef
The natural grasslands along East Anglia’s lazy rivers support a diversity of plants and wildlife. Cattle grazing these lush pastures during the summer maintain essential habitats for ground nesting birds, such as lapwings and snipe, to nest and flourish the following spring.
Sustainable livestock production in these area of outstanding natural beauty has been a feature of the landscape for centuries. A unique example of man working in harmony with nature, conserving our heritage for future generations to enjoy.
Feeding is closely monitored by Riverside Beef, with cattle grazing natural grasses and herbs in the summer, during the winter while back on the farms they are fed on natural, and wherever possible, locally grown traditional feeds such as cereals, forage and root crops.
The Benefits of a Fully Assured Supply Chain
The selected livestock are processed locally in assured facilities complying with the highest standard of animal welfare and hygiene. The meat is matured on the bone for a minimum of 14 days to enhance the flavour and naturally tenderise before being introduced to the plate.
Through our partners in the supply chain we can provide outstanding Riverside Beef to butchers, restaurants, retailers, schools and individual customers either on the bone or cut and packed according to their specific requirements.
Education – because we believe that it is important to maintain these vital areas for wildlife, we are keen to involve our customers and their customers in farm visits, talks and presentations.
