Beef Forerib

(5 customer reviews)


This is the classic beef forerib. It comprises the famous ‘rib-eye’ steak nestling within outstanding flavour-filled outer muscle sectors. We sell it on the bone, either one, two or three ribs wide. Roast this to show off to your friends and family. They’ll be extremely complimentary, to put it mildly. Joints range in weight and will be 1-rib, 2-rib or just occasionally a complete 5-rib.

Price: £18.00 / kg (£8.16/lb)

These ribs listed are from a grass-fed ex-suckler Welsh Black cow. They look fabulous. They are more lean than the one in the main picture, which is a 4-score. You still have the fat cover, loads of marbling, and masses of meat. The gallery shows some previous cuts to give you an idea.

Beef and Mutton from the Carmarthenshire hills

Scroll down for information about our beef.

Our Aim …

… is to bring you the best beef and mutton you will ever taste.  The secret is (1) older animals, (2) grass-feeding and (3) super-ageing after slaughter. We slaughter grass-fed ex-suckler heritage beef cows around five years of age.  Then we hang the carcase in the chiller for no fewer than fifty-six days.  At 56 days something extraordinary begins to happen.  The increase in tenderness is dramatic.  The taste becomes deeper and more complex.  The meat enzymes have done their work!  We begin to approach, if you will forgive the expression, ‘meatopia’.

Our Environment

Contrary to what you might hear, the environmental impact of raising sheep and cattle is low. Our animals hang out in fields during the summer and eat silage, harvested grass, in winter.  They are never ‘finished’ on grain in ‘feed-lots’.

After all, sheep and cattle are grazing animals.  Their digestive system, with its four stomachs, is far more complex than ours.  Ruminants are inefficient at digesting grain but perfectly-designed to extract every last ounce of nutrition out of grass and meadow flowers.  26% of the earth’s surface is pasture. Ruminants are prey animals whose purpose on this earth is to convert what we cannot eat (that’s grass!) slowly but surely into what we can – high-quality, high-protein muscle meat, packed with essential vitamins and nutrients.

Our Pricing

Our meat costs little more than what the supermarkets charge for their highest quality.  But the similarity ends there.  Our beef is twice as old and hung for twice as long as even the ‘best’ beef from the big firms.  Our older stock brings more flavour and our super-ageing delivers taste the ‘big boys’, with their need for throughput, can only dream of.

These days produce can be flown half-way round the world to satisfy modern food fads.  When you choose our super-aged beef or mutton, you know the animals have been well cared-for and you are buying local, from farm to fork, keeping those food miles to the bare minimum.  That’s why meat from Fferm Wernlwyd (Grey Alders) is the very best – and doesn’t cost the earth.

NB. All our meat is vacuum-packed and fast-frozen.

    We bought a forerib for my birthday. The good ageing and fat content of the meat gave it some mind bending flavours. It’s a “so that’s what steak should tase like” moment. We cooked it very slow & low and then barbecued it to finish. Delicious. Aged meat often comes at more of a Price too – this was very good value.
