Grey Alders 99% Super-aged Welsh Beef Gourmet Burgers.  We’ve taken our versatile super-aged minced beef, added just enough salt (0.8%), ground black pepper and dried sage to bring you the best beef burger you will ever taste.  No rusk. Therefore no gluten. We pack two x 4oz or two x 5oz or two x 6oz burgers on an eco-friendly, fully-compostable sugar-cane tray, separated by waxed paper discs. Even the plastic bag is recyclable.  Comes to you frozen, so note the complete absence of E-numbers. In our own taste tests against other posh burgers, ours tasted the best.  No surprise there.

Description

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.

    Super flavour beef burgers , good texture. Purchased in Carmarthen

  6. Simon Morton

    We bought 4 of the 5oz Burgers at Mumbles Farmers Market, I usually only make my own burgers using 28 day aged Aberdeen Angus mince, this is another level! I will probably continue making my own burgers, but now have a real need to buy the mince from here to make them!

  7. Patricia

    Beautifully succulent beefburgers with a wonderful flavour. Served in a homemade burger bun accompanied by onion confit and a salad. It’s the real deal. Would never buy our burgers anywhere else. Eat your heart out McDonalds. These burgers are what real food is all about!

  8. Jane Radziejewski

    Lovely flavour, tender and juicy, shrunk a little as expected, this just proves they are the real deal. Excellent.
