We sell our grass fed Red Poll Beef
We sell our pedigree heifers to other farmers
Red Poll beef is renowned and ours is excellent. This is the roast beef of Old England, grass fed, well marbled and hung for 3 to 4 weeks. It is certified organic, is considered a slow food as our cattle are fattened naturally, not pushed with corn. The meat is delicious and good for you. It is like a fine wine.
We sell our beef each month (except August and January) to customers who come to the farm to collect their order and also in local markets. We can courier our meat anywhere in the UK for £11.

Our Cook Book
Red Poll Cattle are a British breed on the At Risk register. They are an excellent breed of cattle for both beef and milking but do not grow as big as continental breeds or produce as much milk. However, the quality of both meat and milk is better.
Red Polls are easy calvers, excellent mothers, long lived and friendly cattle. They are good scroungers on environmentally sensitive areas and thrive on limited pastures.
The Red Poll Cattle Society helps and encourages all those who keep Red Poll Cattle and there are regular meetings and herd competitions. Our Cools herd was nationally second to the Queen's herd at Sandringham in 2012 and has since received prizes for the southern area each year.
If you would like to consider keeping Red Poll cattle or adding the Cools genes to your herd, please do get in touch. We are delighted to show visitors our animals and open each year on Open Farm Sunday and for Educational Access.
