The name refers to Omega 3, a fat that is beneficial to human health and well-being. Research has shown that beef in general and the Galloway breed in particular, are naturally high in these “good” fats. https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/animals-and-livestock/beef-cattle/breeding/beef-cattle-breeds/galloway
“Direct” refers to our philosophy of bringing our award-winning beef straight to the consumer.
As well as our land being certified organic since 1997, we are now piloting a novel conservation grazing method that entails the use of cutting-edge virtual fence technology. This allows our cattle to graze our sensitive upland habitats in the most conservation-friendly way possible. This grazing method has been shown to sequester more carbon in the grassland than is emitted, which allows our cattle and grazing methodology to be part of the solution by both adapting to and mitigating against the effects of climate change.
Our most popular product is what we call the “Ultimate Steak Burger”: our award-winning 100% Galloway quarter-pounder, with naturally high levels of Omega 3.
No gluten, no preservatives, no fillers, no colouring or flavouring.
We can also supply customised boxes of our beef, by special order, to include steaks, marrowbones, stir-fry, etc. These orders need a longer lead-in time.
Our upland grazing has never been subjected to chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or weed-killers, leaving the soil in a natural pristine condition, virtually unchanged since the Bronze Age.
• Our low impact farm has a much lower stocking level than a commercial farm.
• Our meat is dry-aged for at least 14 days, expertly hand-cut, wrapped and blast-frozen immediately to protect valuable nutrients and omega 3 fats.
Our burgers can be cooked from frozen.
