A unique collaboration with the UK’s leading producer of pure WAGYU beef
Set in 600 acres of Suffolk countryside, 10 minutes from Swiss Farm, Earl Stonham Farms is the ultimate definition of locally sourced.
With a herd approaching 500, the farm specialises in the production of pure WAGYU beef, with their beef used in some of London’s finest restaurants.
Practising traditional farming methods, the farm has been laid out specifically for the wellbeing of the cattle.
It’s one of the main reasons we were so delighted to collaborate.
So, what is WAGYU and why’s it so special?
WAGYU is an old Japanese cattle breed with an ability unlike any other breed – to store fat in great propensity within the muscle.
Now, you’ve no doubt heard (and tasted) that more fat equals more flavour. And it’s true. But pure WAGYU from Earl Stonham Farms? Well, that’s unlike anything you’ve probably tasted before. The flavour is simply wonderous.
Specifically, this unique flavour is due to the type of fat being stored within the cattle’s muscle.
Compared to other breeds, this fat is, in fact, much higher in soft, monounsaturated fat and lower in harder, saturated fat. The result? Beef that’s bursting with flavour and quite literally melts in your mouth.
Why is Earl Stonham Farms beef so sought after?
There are many reasons why Earl Stonham Farms WAGYU beef is sought after by butchers, foodies and restaurants.
As well as being pasture raised and focusing on the cattle’s wellbeing, their WAGYU beef is 100% pure.
You see, some WAGYU cattle are bred with other cattle breeds such as Friesian. That means such beef can be classified as WAGYU, but it’s not pure WAGYU . Earl Stonham Farms WAGYU, however, is pure and the taste difference is profound.
Another reason is that all Earl Stonham Farms beef we source is carefully prepared by our master butchers right here at Swiss Farm.
