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.

Spatchcock Chicken & Lemon Garlic Butter

Spatchcock Chicken & Lemon Garlic Butter

Spatchcocked chickens have a flattened shape, produced by removing the spine and opening out the bird. It’s still a whole chicken, with juicy, tender meat on-the-bone – and the flatter shape means it’s brilliant on the BBQ, too.

One-Pot Pork Chops with Vibrant Veg

One-Pot Pork Chops with Vibrant Veg

With maximum flavour (and minimal washing up), this unfussy recipe is packed with colourful veg – it’s easy to adapt, so you can ring the changes with other root vegetables, greens or woody herbs according to the contents of your fridge.

Mediterranean Sausage Plait

Mediterranean Sausage Plait

Delicious hot or cold, we think this Plait would be great as part of a picnic – slice and wrap before you go, or take a board and knife and serve it up in situ.

Why Greendale Beef is best

Pastured at our family farm on East Devon’s Jurassic coast, the Greendale beef herd comprises a mix of Limousin, Charolais, Red Devon Cross, Belgian Blue and Blonde d'Aquitaine cattle. 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- and maize-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.

Greendale Restaurant

The Greendale Kitchen is now open in the evenings offering delicious local sourced meals. The extensive menu is created around many of the items sold in our shop; we offer a range of delicious dishes that showcase fresh local produce from our butcher’s department.
