“At Bere Mill, we aim to produce meat carefully: meat that has exceptional flavour, is correctly and well hung and beautifully butchered.
Our herd of Belted Galloway Cattle and flock of Black Welsh Mountain sheep live and graze exclusively on the water meadows and chalk uplands of the Test Valley. They are slow growing breeds that are given the time to mature naturally and are entirely pasture fed. This is because it is a combination of the breed, the feed that is put into them and the hanging that produces real flavour, texture and grain in the meat.
Most of the ground we farm is protected under SSSi designation (Sites of Special Scientific Interest). This means it supports a greater diversity of plant, insect, bird and animal life. Instead of a few varieties of grass, our meadows contain hundreds of different plant types including wild herbs and garlic. This land does not produce industrial quantities of grass”.
