Recently we took a trip across the boarder to meet Tim Bastard from Tregada Farm. Nestled in the beautiful North Cornwall countryside, Tregada is one of a handful of farms to supply our beef.
A second generation farmer, Tim, has worked at Tregada his entire life and it shows. After five minutes in his company you're at ease and so are his cattle. His passion for the land, animals and work is infectious.
Tregada Farm is home to 150 South Devon cattle, the largest native breed in the UK and according to Tim, they're possibly the most docile in the UK as well. Out to graze during the summer and housed when necessary during the harsh winter months, they live a content life. The cattle are fed a grass-based diet with locally sourced natural supplemental feeds added when necessary (also grown at Tregada).
