Conygree Beef

Beef Boxes

We sell boxes of Traditional Hereford beef ready for the oven or freezer. Boxes include a mix of popular Sunday joints (e.g. a topside, silverside or top rump), slow roasts (e.g. brisket) and some delicious sirloin or rump steak. They also contain diced beef and mince.

We can vary the boxes to suit your needs working with our butcher to prepare any special cuts as desired. However, we recommend our most popular boxes as follows:

The Conygree Beef Box

  • 2.5kg of classic roasting joints (2 joints)
  • 1.5kg sirloin or rump steak (3 packs of 2)
  • 1.0kg slow roast (brisket, chuck, featherblade)
  • 1.0kg braising steak, beef skirt or shin
  • 1.0kg diced beef
  • 2.0kg mince and/or burgers

Minimum weight: 9kg

Price: £100

The Small Conygree Beef Box

  • 1.5kg of roasting joints (1 joint)
  • 1.0kg sirloin or rump steak (2 packs of 2)
  • 1.0kg diced beef
  • 1.0kg mince

Minimum weight: 4.5kg

Price: £55

Please note that box contents may vary slightly from the above.

In addition you can add the following special cuts to any of the boxes (although supply is limited):

  • Fillet joint – the prized and most tender of joints (with only around 3.00kg on a 500kg animal!).
  • Fillet steak – delicate and juicy so cook fast and best eaten rare!
  • Forerib joint – my favourite Sunday roast (like a rack of lamb but bigger!)
  • Beef burgers – very tasty beefy burgers (4 quarter pounders in a pack)
  • Other joints and cuts – just ask!

Fair Price

Our beef is not only great tasting but it is also great value. Although we do not aim to compete on price with the cheaper supermarkets or imported lamb products you will find our price more than matches other quality products on the high street or on the web. Buying a box is the cheapest way to fill the freezer.

Quality Assurance

All our cows are reared to the highest animal welfare and environmental standards. The farm is managed organically, assured by Organic Farmers & Growers, and the majority of our land is in the Environmental Stewardship Scheme to benefit farmland birds and wildflowers. Our beef cattle graze the wildflower meadows here at Conygree all year, maturing naturally at between 24 - 30 months old. Our pasture fed production is certified by Pasture for Life. For more information visit: Quality Assurance.

Well Hung Meat

All our beef is dry hung for 28 days to allow the meat to mature and tenderise before being jointed and packed by a local butcher.

Traditional Taste

Many people agree beef from traditional breeds raised on species rich grassland is the best they have ever tasted. Our customers certainly think so. A good amount of fat and marbling is crucial to the taste.

Health Benefits

Research has now shown that meat from slower growing animals which graze on species rich grass is a healthier alternative than meat from grain fed animals. Pastured meat is:

  • Lower total fat levels than meat from grain-fed animals and is also lower in saturated fat content. It has higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and a lower, more balanced (and healthier) ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Significantly higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than meat from grain-fed animals and higher levels of vaccenic acid, which can be turned into CLA
  • Higher vitamin and mineral levels than meat from grain-fed animals. Particularly rich in vitamins A and E, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium

Many of the health benefits associated with pasture-fed meat decline after only a few weeks of grain (maize, soya, cereal) feeding. Grass fed should mean 100% grass fed - Pasture for Life certifies this.
