Our veal calves are all born, reared, slaughtered and butchered in Cornwall. They are the bull calves from dairy herds, reared in small groups in open air, loose straw yards. They have plenty of fresh air and room to move around, a bit of sunshine (weather permitting!), and a varied diet including milk, cereals and straw from their deep bedding. Although not part of an organic farm, our animals are given no medicines or other treatments unless strictly necessary for their health and wellbeing.
The calves are killed at around 6-7 months – older than most pork and lamb, and considerably older than the vast majority of poultry on the market.
