Galician Blond (Rubia Gallega) is a breed of cattle native to Galicia, a region in north west of Spain. The cows and oxen are reared for beef only and at the top level can reach a grand age of 17. Selection and grading is based on marbling, colour of the beef and type of fat which all contribute to a unique rich flavour.
Retired Dairy Cows. Following a four year dairy cycle our cows retire and naturally grow fat. Simmental or Holstein Friesian cattle most commonly sourced from Germany, Poland and the Netherlands. This type of beef originated in the Basque Country and is often referred to as the “Basque Cider House Steak” after a tradition of Basque farmers exchanging beef for cider at the Cider Houses.
