Where is your beef from?
Right here, on Rothiemurchus. 

Our Highland fold of cattle dates back to the 1920s, with the herd being pedigreed and members of the Highland Cattle Society since the 1950s. We only buy in breeding bulls, with all the breeding females being born on Rothiemurchus, which means we can trace bloodlines back over 60 years. The cattle are born and reared here, grazing in the fields in the summer and spending the winter in our woods.

Are the cattle grass fed?
Our Highland fold of cattle have a winter diet of mostly grass silage with the younger ones getting some barley as well. About 95% of their winter diet is produced on the farm, with Distillers Grains (spent grains from the many whisky distilleries in Strathspey) bought in to top up the protein levels of our forage and barley.

How long is your beef hung for?
When the cattle are deemed ready for the shop, they make the short trip down the A95 to the abattoir in Grantown on Spey, the only time the cattle leave the farm. The carcass comes back to Rothiemurchus to be hung in our chill for 4 weeks before being butchered by our expert butchers Brian and Fraser in our own butchery department, ready to be sold in our Estate Farm Shop. We are in the fortunate position of being in control of nearly the whole process, meaning we produce beef the way our customers want it.

Where is your venison from?
All our venison is sourced from right here on Rothiemurchus, the meat is totally traceable from ‘Estate to plate’ and we don’t clock up any food miles as the whole process happens onsite. The process begins with our Head Stalker, Peter who ensures that our deer live peaceful and healthy lives grazing the grasses of our forests and hills before carefully selecting the very best beasts which are handled with great care and respect. According to Peter ‘every stage of the process is meticulous with great attention to detail ’.
