From Farm to Plate:
Part 1 The Cattle
Greendale Farm Shop's 'From Farm to Plate’ film series tells the story of Greendale beef. Starting with the cattle grazing above the Jurassic coast, it moves on to visit the double award-winning butchers at Greendale Farm Shop, and ends with Chef Tom Williams-Hawkes cooking a finished beef dish at the Salutation Inn. The first film, Part 1, features Sam, our Farm Manager, as he checks the Greendale herd.
Greendale's butchers prepare all our meat on-site at the farm shop using meat from our own farm. With years of experience, they are always on hand to help customers with expert advice about choosing the right cut of meat and the best way to cook or prepare it. If you’re buying online, rest assured that this same expertise has been put to good use to ensure your purchase is exactly right; you’ll find all of our meat is available in a wide range of cuts and portions, ready-packed for fast delivery.
We’re not sure how Toad in the Hole came by its unusual name, but whatever its origins, this satisfying dish is a true comfort-food favourite. In this recipe, we’ve used our hand-made Pork & Apple Sausages and a quick red onion gravy to serve on the side – just add your favourite greens.
Sometimes time is short, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on a healthy, tasty meal. Apart from a bit of chopping and stirring, this recipe is pretty straightforward – it’s great to have up your sleeve for those times when you find yourself cooking against the clock.
Why Greendale Beef is best
We raise our own beef herd - a mixture of Aberdeen Angus and Charolais - at our family farm in East Devon, pasturing the animals in fields close to the Jurassic coast. We place great importance on animal welfare, such as the guidelines set out by the Red Tractor Food Assurance Scheme. Good herd management and a grass-based diet ensure our animals lead healthy, stress-free lives, and in turn produce superb quality meat. Our beef is hung on the bone for a minimum of three weeks, giving it time to develop wonderful tenderness and flavour, then the skilled butchers at Greendale Farm Shop finish the process, preparing the delicious, high-quality beef products we’re renowned for.
