Longhorns are the oldest British breed of cattle. They have increased marbling of fat, which melts into the meat during cooking and gives it a fantastic flavour. Proper hanging is vital and our meat is hung for a minimum of 25 days. This matures the beef, tenderises it and produces a truly outstanding flavour in all cuts. Supermarket beef is often on sale after just a few days.
It is not just us who think that Longhorn beef is the best beef you can buy…

A panel of judges found the Longhorn Steak to be ‘delicious’, ‘very sweet’ and ‘melts in the mouth’. Once you’ve tasted Longhorn Beef you have tasted real beef – nothing else compares!
