Our Beef farmers – MacDuff
MacDuff Beef comes from a family of 13 Scottish farms who have joined together to set themselves a uniquely high standard of beef production. This ensures that MacDuff Beef has complete traceability from farm to plate. All cattle come with a passport, which states breed, parentage and the farm or farms that have looked after them. Passports match up with the ear tags on each animal. Details from the passport are then transferred to each individual carcass label, which gives our customers all the information they require.
MacDuff cattle are reared naturally and fed only on grass and grass-based products (which are rich in health-giving omega 3). This natural diet ensures the full, rich flavour of beef as it used to taste before the introduction of intensive farming techniques. MacDuff gains further richness and succulence from being matured the traditional way, on the bone.
