Description

In a 300 - 350kg beef carcass, there is a scant 2 - 2.5kg of fillet, which is the least exercised muscle of the animal. Exceptionally tender we like to roast it whole in a very hot oven and serve it very bloody and rare - almost fridge cold in the middle.

The Story says

Lean and exceptionally succulent, fillet steak is the most tender cut and a real indulgence. Rub with a little oil and seasoning, sear in a hot pan and serve with shoestrings fries and a chimichurri salsa or chop finely and contrast the meltingly soft texture with sharp, acidic flavours of caper, cornichon and mustard in a steak tartare.

This fillet steak comes from Luke's organic herd of slow maturing native breed North and South Devon cows. The cows graze traditional pastures for as long as possible from early spring to late autumn. They are free to roam different habitats with plenty of browsing and types of grazing. 100% grass-fed and hung on the bone for 35 days this fillet is low in saturated fats, as well as having high levels of CLAs, Omega 3 + 6 and vitamins E & B. When you add that to the health and welfare benefits Luke provides for the animals, it is clear Luke is offering a kind and sustainable way of producing meat that is also contributing to conservation and biodiversity.

Meet The Story

Chew Valley, Somerset

It all began in 2004 when our farmers Somerset locals Jim Twine & Luke Hasell took over their family farms in the Chew Valley in North Somerset. Luke runs Heron’s Green Farm and the Hasell family have farmed in the area for over 100 years. He uses the land for feeding the cattle with fertility-building red and white clovers and various break crops such as barley, wheat, peas and oats. Heron’s Green is Organic, certified through the Organic Farmers and Growers. It is also completely self sufficient and provides hay and silage for the cattle to enjoy enough food in the winter. Our traditional North and South Devon beef breeds enjoy a 100% natural grass based diet and are farmed organically and reared ethically. On the farm you’ll see a huge range of wildlife and plants because of the rich diversity farming in the traditional way brings. We have planted 40 acres of native broadleaf trees creating a stunning forest overlooking Chew Valley Lake which encourages new wildlife. We’ve spotted breeding hares, owls, badgers, partridges, rare bats and many deer. We believe beef tastes so good because it's all from our own herd so we can specify the breed, the feed, the husbandry and the butchery. We are proud to be certified by the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association who champion the virtues of pastoral farming and provide a distinct identity for systems where animals eat only grass and forage crops their entire life. Our beef is flavoursome, marbled and tender as a result and is sought after by butchers and restaurants who recognise its premium quality. >*‘We love the ethos of Farmdrop. It something we’ve tried to do from the start. It’s an amazing concept and it’s very satisfying to know that what we’re producing is out there and people are buying it for that reason.’* **Luke Hasell, The Story** ● Member of the Countryside Stewardship scheme and beef is traditionally hung and Dry Aged for a minimum of 30 days to ensure tender meat with delicious depth of flavour. ● 100% grass-fed beef and PFLA (Pasture Fed Livestock Association) and Organic Farmers and Growers accredited. Won Gold at the Soil Association Organic Food Awards in 2013. ● Winner of National Trust Fine Food Award 2018, Bristol Good Food Award 2014 and runner up in BBC Farmer of the Year 2014.
