Their sirloin steak has astonishingly good marbling, is beautifully tender-almost buttery and generously cut; a steak to eat as rare as you dare."

Britain's finest organic beef - The Times Weekend Review
"Perridge Farm is one of the loveliest places in England - the french would describe it as a terroir superb - a place ideally suited to its purpose - that of producing Britain's finest organic beef."
A Rick Stein Hero - Brown Cow Voted Tastiest Beef
11 out of 15 butchers at Smithfield market voted our beef the tastiest when it was featured on Rick Stein's Food Heroes programme.
Sunday Telegraph - Jamie Oliver's article in the Stella Magazine
An extract of what Jamie Oliver had to say in his new monthly column; Brown Cow Organic's approach to food starts with the soil,which was a real shock to me. The family were absolutely obsessed - even before you get to the breed of the cow,or talk about hanging the meat so that its tasty and tender - about the fact that the proper welfare of animals starts by creating the most fertile and balanced soil. Brown Cow put the continually improving flavour of their meat, and it is incredible, down to this work.
