A guide to our beef cuts
This well known steak is tender and well marbled, with a beefier flavour and meatier texture than ribeyes or fillet.
Tender steaks cut from the fore rib.
Deep flavoured and beautifully marbled, this thick steak is great for a good old fashioned steak and chips
Lean and tender, this is one of the most prized cuts of beef available. This cut comes from an area of the sirloin and tastes great with pastry in a beef wellington (you can make mini-wellingtons with the steaks).
Topside frying steak
Lean meat, which will cook quickly but maintain its flavour. Great for low-cost stir-fries, salads and steak sandwiches.
Also known as thick flank, this is more tender than chuck or shin and is therefore good for pies and faster cooking stews
Silverside or Topside
Sourced from the rear of the animal, these areas produce the lean meat which is perfect for roasting. Silverside may require slightly longer cooking times.
Cut from the fore rib, this premium roasting joint is exceptionally tender. With its excellent marbling and fat coverage, it is perfect for a special family roast.
Flavoursome meat, for a delicious beef stew or a ‘proper’ chilli. Shin muscle is relatively lean, but has thick connective tissue running through it, which melts during cooking and provides extra flavour.
Full flavoured joint ideal for moist, slow cooking.
A traditional Cornish cut: boned and rolled short rib. Requires slow cooking in moist conditions. Similar to brisket and can be cooked in the same way.
Delicious, beefy mince, great for cottage pie and a million other dishes.
Separated into individual vertebra, cooking long and slow will release some extremely deep flavours.
The quintessential Cornish cut used in pasties for centuries. Comes from the diaphragm area, and so it is relatively flat and quick to prepare.
Very similar to skirt and tastes just as good in a pasty. Cut from the shoulder area.
Well-seasoned and made from our flavoursome mince
Reared with care
Our Ruby Red Devon cows and Shropshire sheep are born and raised at Tregaminion and our sister farm Bruggan. The calves are kept with their mothers for 8 months, only being separated when they are ready to 'fly the nest'. As they grow, the cows are fed a grass-based diet of fresh grazing in the summer and silage and hay in the winter. All our beef is therefore 'grass fed'.
Our sheep are also mostly grass-fed (we feed them handfuls of ewe nuts and grain as a daily treat- they can't get enough of them!). We allow our lambs to mature slowly and naturally, which takes over a year. At this point they become known as hoggets. You can find out more about the delicious, deep flavours, lean quality and health benefits of hogget meat here...
Our meat boxes are made from recycled brown paper, cardboard and raffia, and our insulation is made of 100% natural, sustainably sourced wool. The wool is biodegradable and compostable, but for more ideas on how to reuse your woolly insulation (including lining hanging baskets), take a look at the Woolcool website...
Although we would love to deliver your meat to you plastic free, health and safety dictates that the individual cuts must be packaged in a plastic vacuum pack. Vacuum packing ensures ultimate freshness and the amount of plastic we use is kept to a minimum.
Our aim is to never put our Devon cows through a market, but instead minimise stress by delivering them directly to the abattoir on the day they are booked in. As our beef boxes gain in popularity (thanks to you!), we are slowly realising this dream.
The beef is hung for 21 days to develop the flavour, and then butchered by our local abattoir butchers, Trevarthens.
The meat is frozen immediately after butchery to ensure complete freshness is maintained.

TOO FAR AWAY?
There are so many amazing beef producers across Britain, many of them providing beef boxes direct from their own farms. We want to support our friends in other parts of the country, and keep food miles down for beef production, so we are unable to ship meat through the post. We hope you will be able to find a great famer near to where you live.
