All our meat is 100% traceable, right from the herd the animal is born into, the farm it has been raised on, where it has been slaughtered and where the meat has been prepared and packed. There you have it, traceability form farm to plate. At Meat No Veg we aim to have the shortest possible food chain, so we can all be reassured of the provenance of our meat.

outdoor-reared.jpg

Outdoor reared – These piglets are born and live outside in farmers fields, where they are free to move about and snuffle around. Along with other pigs, they live outside for about half their lives. They are fed, watered and sheltered in the fields, and are given generous minimum space allowances per pig. The breeding sows are kept outside in fields for the vast majority of their lives.

28days.jpg 

Matured 28 days – This product has been dry air matured for 28 days, in rooms where we carefully monitor humidity levels, air circulation and temperature. Our meat is matured whole, on the bone, because so much of the meats taste actually comes from the bone and bone marrow. This process intensifies the meats flavour. It makes the meat really tender, succulent and tasty. This maturing process is the secret behind prime cuts of meat used in top restaurants.

However, lots of meat sold in the UK is only matured for just a few days due to the costs involved. Also, during the maturing process, the meat losses moisture. So a piece of beef that hasn’t been hung, will weigh more than a piece that has, due to its extra water content.

So how does it work? Well, as meat ages, its enzymes start to break down its muscle fibres, making the meat softer.  The results are all in the tastes – tender, beautiful succulent meat with a full, strong flavour.

hung3.jpg Hung for flavour - Most game gives its best taste and flavour after hanging -  This means leaving the game hanging in cool conditions before plucking or skinning. It is difficult to give exact times as it depends on the air temperature at the time and the age of the game. But as a rule, our game is hung for a minimum of  two days.
