Hand crafted from British dairy-bred, grass-fed organic beef
We use our own grass-fed, dairy-bred organic beef which has it’s own glorious story here to magic up a delicious modern version on a very very popular old classic. An artisan, hand-crafted product – cured, slowly cooked for 12 hours in it’s own broth and then hand-pulled and pressed into terrines. A truly flavoursome deep, rich, buttery corned beef.
This corned beef is very different to a tinned version – yes, you can still slice it easily but it has a lovely rich crumbly texture too that makes it a very versatile and an incredibly tasty store cupboard essential … delicious and ready to use. Ideal for salads, sandwiches, snacks, parties, picnics and hearty lunches. No tin – no key – no cut fingers (if you’re old enough to remember!).
Part of this wonderful story is that this product allows us to raise dairy-bred, grass-fed beef animals profitably – steak cuts and mince use only part of the beef carcass and they are popular family essentials … Corned Beef is made from less popular whole cuts that respond beautifully to being slow cooked – tender, rich & buttery beef.
We work with a lovely team at Native Breeds Charcuterie part of Fowlescombe Rare & Pasture Ltd; Ruth & Graham are incredibly talented Charcutiers based in Lydney, Gloucester.

We’re now combining everything—the pigs, the cows and calves, the landscapes, the wildlife—deer, owls, badgers, flora and fauna generally, although not all of it appears on cue. Our colleague James Andrews, expert at wildlife photography among other skills, will lead the ‘Safari’ tours, in the red land rover
We have set up a farm shop at the Royal Oak in Bishopstone for groceries, organic meat and freshly prepared meals to take-away during the current restrictions on in-house dining. Please see our social media for updates and a full list of available produce.
