don't trust labels....
food labels are still a scandalous trap for the unwary
and even when you buy from the biggest names
not all is always what it says it is.
If beef or lamb is "cheap" there just has to be a catch
you could find it impossible to know where in the World
it came from, or under what conditions it was raised.
why should you trust us....?
well, it is quite simple: all the meat we sell is
ENTIRELY produced on Orkney
and all the beef and lamb is
covered by one very , VERY special label,
the one that says
Protected Designation of Origin
this EU certification confirms why what you see
on this site actually tastes different......
"Orkney Beef (& lamb) is derived from cattle
(& sheep) born, reared and slaughtered in Orkney.
The distinctly different texture and flavour
of Orkney beef & lamb is largely due to the
topography, geology and climate of the
Orkney Islands which imparts specific characteristics
to the grass and herbage providing the main diet.
The Geographical area is limited to the group of
islands in the North Atlantic off the North Coast of
Scotland known as the Orkney Islands."
not all the beef and lamb raised, or sold, on Orkney
is entitled to be described as "Orkney Beef"
or "Orkney lamb" as not all carries the Certification. .
but ours carries it.........
