Hereford Beef articles

Over the past 200 years Hereford cattle have been exported to the four corners of the world, due to its reputation as a high class beef animal. From the pampas grasslands of Argentina to the vast prairies of North America Herefords have thrived, producing great tasting beef.

Hereford Beef is chosen by some of the best restaurateurs and chefs around the world and it’s a firm family favourite too. Free from additives and growth hormones, Hereford Beef’s natural marbling ensures each and every dish is full of the most succulent flavours all the way through the meat.

As the Hairy Bikers remarked in their book Food Tour of Britain: 'Of all the mobile kitchen dishes we made, roast Hereford Beef was the one people went most bonkers about! They loved it and rightly so – perfect beef. The taste is just amazing!'
