Here at La Perriere we have our very own herd of Aberdeen Angus Cattle. We have two pedigree bulls called Cherry Brandy & Kilcardine. Cherry Brandy is from the Warrenho herd in Hampshire. We also have 40 breeding Aberdeen Angus cows. All our cattle are entirely grass fed, traditional Angus. The reason we decided to keep Angus is that they do very well being purely grass fed. Aberdeen Angus has been bred over many centuries to ensure great eating. The beef has a perfect balance of fat and lean with the essential “marbling” of fine threads of fat interwoven with the lean to ensure tenderness, succulence and flavour.
The cattle are only brought into barns over winter when necessary. They are bedded down using straw which has come from the barley we harvest in the summer & are fed hay which we also make from the beautiful lush grass we cut in the summer.
