Beef shin is a cheap but tasty cut commonly used in casseroles, curries, and hotpots. It comes from the foreshank of a cow, and as this is a hard-working muscle it has lots of tough connective tissues. However, if cooked low and slow, these fibres break down and in doing so, thickens the sauce. So whilst a inexpensive cut because of the cooking time required, the results are well worth the wait.

This is from one of our Welsh Black bullocks born and raised on our nature friendly Dartmoor Farm. Grass-fed for life and being able to graze our pastures and moorland year-round they are slow grown and their meat is full of flavour and naturally high in antioxidants, Omega 3, vitamins and minerals.

We are a working farm and don’t have a shop on site. Most people come and collect their meat, combining it with a walk. We are around most of the time, so once you have ordered, let us know when would be convenient (your order confirmation email has our contact info) and we’ll put your order aside and confirm that we will be in.
We also offer free delivery locally for orders over £60 and can overnight courier to England and Wales in an insulated box for £15 (but please check before ordering).
Note all meat is frozen, so will keep for many months – just cook within 3 days of defrosting.
