Wipe out your lethargy and enjoy every mouthful with our monthly meat box of 100% grass fed beef and lamb and pastured pork

Cure your lethargy

and end the cravings

Do you sometimes feel sluggish and not able to get on with your day? As if the chair or your bed seem to be more inviting than anything else.

Your body needs a good support – and giving it proper nourishment without the bulk will cure your laziness.

No bulk? Yes, because 1 mouthful of our meat gives you equal amount of nutrients of 4 mouthfuls of regular meat.

That means you can eat less to get more. Your body will stop craving nutrients and you’ll feel energized to get on with your life.

This is based on average increase in these nutrients: vitamin E (4.4x higher), CLA (0.9x higher), omega-3 (4x higher), beta carotene (6.5x higher). Average is 3.95% higher nutrient content in 100% grass fed beef over conventional beef.

Better value for money

Our meat might seem more expensive.

For example, a single steak might cost you £4 in a shop. Our steak will cost you £7-10.

But it’s still a bargain – for the equal amount of nutrients you would need to eat 4 regular steaks and spend £16.

Nutritional difference is beyond what you think

healthy fats only

Our 100% grass fed beef is special. It is 25% lower in fat than a standard beef. On top of this, its fats contain healthier omega-3 fatty acids instead of omega-6 fatty acids that are typical in standard beef. This is because grass is a precursor to omega-3 fatty acids, whereas grain is a precursor to omega-6 fatty acids.

So our meat is way healthier as its fat profile is much more beneficial to your health.

You don't need to be a master chef to make your dishes taste delicious

And if you are - you are in for an epic experience

Even if you don’t cook a great deal, your dishes will be come out as something special.

The meat will be tender and juicy. This is because our beef and lamb are both traditionally dry-aged (21 – 28 days for beef, 10 days for lamb).

Dry aging increases tenderness and flavour. Our roasting joint might cook quicker than you expect.

It’s frozen and seasonal

The best grass produces tastiest and most nutritious meat. So we wait until such time comes to ensure we can give you meat of top nutritional quality and taste.

Which means our meat is seasonal. We have to freeze it to store the goodness of the season.

How much freezer space do you need?

1/4 -1/2 freezer drawer for a single person and a couple, 1/2 to 2/3 for 3 people and 2/3 to a whole drawer for 4 people. When the box arrives, you can put some of the meat packs in the fridge – once defrosted, they’ll be safe there for up to 2-3 days.

Since the meat comes in small packages, you should be able to squeeze small box sizes and small portions (2 people or less) even in a full freezer.

Our 100% grass fed herd of English Shorthorn beef cattle

Our meat is clean and beyond organic

Our meat is not all labelled organic but it conforms to all the standards and goes well beyond them.

All our cattle and sheep are fed only grass. Grass that is never fertilized or sprayed with herbicides. Even an organic system does not require 100% grass fed system. The beef you get in the shop has been fed a mountain of grain:

  • 1 tonne of barley,
  • 30 kg rapeseed,
  • 23.5 kg of sugar beet and
  • 14 kg soya.

And to produce this grain in a non-organic system, heaps of chemicals were spread on the land – 40 kg fertilizers and 0.5 litres of pesticides.

Our beef and lamb are good for the planet

The herd of grazing animals stimulates grassland to pump CO2 from the air into the soil. Yes, I mean CO2, the greenhouse gas that causes global warming. They do this by intensive grazing for 1 day only and allowing land to recover. After being grazed and re-growing, grassland pumps CO2 into the soil and stores it there as soil carbon while growing taller each time.

One person emits 10 tonnes of CO2 every year. This nearly equals what one of our cows takes from the air and stores in the soil (9.6 tonnes CO2) every year. This is a net CO2 after we have taken away corresponding methane emissions of our herd.

Our cattle and sheep management mimics nature and allows grassland to store CO2 in the soil
Orchids, knapweeds and many other meadow species return to our pastures

Our farm animals are restoring the land

Regenerative farming makes our land sing – the soil and biodiversity are restored, along with wildlife.

This is because we allow our animals to graze an area only for 1 day. This prevents weakening of plants that would die under constant grazing. Our management wakes up dormant seed bank within the soil.  New plants and herbs sprout to life again, after decades of being mistreated. Our land regenerates its biodiversity.

Your children and grandchildren will inherit a world where wildlife meadows are not restricted to only Nature Reserves.

Our animals are happy and look forward to seeing their farmer

Every day our cattle and sheep move to a fresh new pasture. They love it! Fresh grass that hasn’t been grazed for 30-90 days. No dung. Tasty diverse plants and herbs. It is a heaven for them, that’s how nature designed them to live.

The animals love their farmer and look forward to seeing them every day. They rarely if ever experience fear.

Watch our video to see what our cattle think about being moved to fresh pasture every day

Weston, Hertfordshire

John Cherry

beef

Our deeply flavoured, 21-days dry-aged 100% grass fed beef comes from English Shorthorn cattle from John's farm in Weston. John Cherry is a pioneer and promoter of regenerative agriculture in the UK. His herd of 120 cattle is helping to restore ecosystem on his farm. If you visit Weston, you'll find his cattle somewhere in meadows and pastures surrounding the village. John also uses his herd in a traditional way to naturally control weeds on his arable land. His revolutionary approach to farm with Nature serves as a valuable example to many farmers who visit him to learn. John is working to spread regenerative agriculture within the wider farming community.

Hannah Thorogood

lamb
Hannah Thorogood

Our organic, 100% grass fed lamb come from Hannah's small farm in Lincolnshire. Hannah's native sheep grow slower than usual commercial breeds but the taste of their meat is uncomparable. The meat is tender with subtle flavours of grasses and clovers the sheep graze. The sheep are helping Hannah to restore her previously degraded land. She has made many a head scratched about her non-chemical natural farming methods. She has created a nature oasis amidst the conventional chemical-based farm fields. People visiting Hannah's farm are inspired by her approach of growing food with love and care according to Nature's principles.

Canterbury, Kent

Jeremy Beckman

pork

Our sweet and nutty pork is raised on an old organic vegetable and fruit farm. Here, Jeremy raises his pigs outdoors and manages them over the whole farm. His New Zealand slow-growing breed Kunekune are short and stocky pigs that don't root as much as traditional pigs. Therefore, they can forage in the pastures where they eat grass and weeds. In the orchards they help to control weeds and pests. Jeremy's pigs also prepare new vegetable beds during winter. Unlike cattle and sheep which were designed to thrive on 100% grass diet, pigs need to be supplemented with grain. Jeremy supplements them with flaxseed and wheat. This contrast with a standard pork feed that is based on GM soya.

You won’t find it elsewhere

You can look for it in the stores, but you won’t find it. You can look for it at the local butcher and at the farmer’s market, you still won’t find it.

You may find local and organic meat but seldom if ever do you see genuine regeneratively-raised meat.

That’s because less than 0.05% of farmers raise animals in this way.

There aren’t regenerative farmers around Milton Keynes – I had to search far and wide in England to find our farmers.

Our meat box depends on family butchers and small abattoirs

Supporting local businesses

I must admit, some of our family butchers are rubbish at packing. Their meat packages are uneven and looking a bit bloody.

We can’t have it all – what they are good at is their butchering craft. One hand holding the meat joint, and razor-sharp knife in the other, they keep trimming off bits that don’t fit their high standards. They only portion and pack meat they know will be tender, juicy and full of flavour.

We are dependent on small abattoirs and family butchers. Our farmers and our business keep their craft and knowledge alive. It is part of our heritage.

Testimonials

What our customers say:

Nature Way meat box was an amazing surprise for me. I really wanted meat from a source I could trust. I like that their animals live, eat and die in a very close way that only nature would provide. The meat tastes incredibly. I recommend it to everyone. I hope more people join Nature Way Farm so more farmers can give their animals the life they deserve.
Alexandra Guerreiro

Found the delivery service, packaging and products supplied to be of the very top quality. I cannot praise the quality of the meat enough - after years of using supermarkets and basically, doing what everybody does, I had forgotten how decent meat should taste and the fact that your products are easily distinguishable on taste alone. Was simply a revelation.
Robert Stroud
Milton Keynes
The variety of cuts we have received is really good although they may not have been our first choice. It's great to get cuts we wouldn't usually choose. When I used the mince in burger - kids wanted seconds!! Very tasty. There was nothing but praise for the taste and texture of the pork. In fact, our son said it was one of his new favourite dinners.
Alexandra Baggs and family
Milton Keynes
The meat is excellent and a joy to cook. I was surprised that when cooking the lamb it smelt lovely.

How our cattle are carbon negative

At a sequestering rate of 2.5 t C/ha/year​2​, our herd of 150 cattle can sequester whopping 1,404 t CO2 from the air in the soil. That is equivalent to lifestyle emissions of 140 people.

You can follow my calculations for more details:

  • 150 cattle running on 550 acres. 550 acres = 222 ha
  • Rate of sequestering is 2.5 t of C per ha​ (1)​, so that is 2.5 x 222 = 555 t C. To put this amount of carbon into an equivalent amount of CO2, we have to multiply by -3.666 (IPCC)
    555 x -3.666 = -2,034.63 t CO2 sequestered
  • The methane emissions of cattle in CO2 equivalent terms are 12.14 kg CO2/kg of beef (2)​. Our cow deadweight is about 350 kg. So 12.14 x 350 = 4.2 t CO2 per cow. We have 150 cattle, so that is 4.2 x 150 = +630 t CO2.
  • When we take away cattle’s emissions from our sequestering rate, we conclude 2,034.63 – 630 = -1,404.63 t CO2/year

This means that a beef cow from such herd sequesters -9.3 t CO2 every year. This is nearly equivalent to yearly emissions of your lifestyle (+10 t CO2/year).
