Great British Beef Week is the brainchild of Ladies in Beef, a group of female beef farmers who care passionately about British beef and is an annual celebration of the British Beef industry
This year, Ladies in Beef is joining forces with the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.) to raise vital funds for farming families in financial difficulty.
Manor Farm Beef owners, Chris and Charlotte Shipley, will be supplying their Yorkshire Beef Biltong for the Charcuterie Tasting Board and the fillet for the Beef Wellington for Drewtons ‘Come Dine with Me’ event on Saturday, April 27, and will be talking to the diners about how they followed their dream from Oxford academia back to the family farm near Bridlington.
The theme of this year’s Great British Beef Week is ‘Host a Roast’ and Manor Farm Beef will be ‘hosting the roast’ at Beverley Brasserie Dine on the Rowe on Sunday April 28, with proceeds benefitting R.A.B.I.
Of the initiatives, Charlotte Shipley said:
Great British Beef Week is a great way to educate people how fabulous slow grown, grass fed beef tastes and we’re very grateful to Drewtons and Dine on the Rowe for letting us share our passion with their customers!
Manor Farm Beef rears pedigree Belted Galloway, British Blue and Limousin cattle that are specially bred and fed to produce the best possible taste and texture. They are all born at Manor Farm and spend all of their lives grazing lush pastures before going for slaughter at 30 months, as opposed to the industry standard of 16 months.
The beef is then sold through selected restaurants, Manor Farm Yorkshire Beef Boxes and at Driffield and Hovingham farmers’ markets.
