I´m moving to the UK in a couple of weeks so I´m really interested.
I would like to start a resource thread for those in UK looking for grass fed meat - basically post a link, explain any dealings with them etc.
Ill start with this:
The award winning online beef company, grass fed beef, hung for 4-6 weeks, expertly butchered, UK delivery, The Cows - Beef Breeds, Beef production, Beef Farming
Im going to order something and report back.
In the UK its kind of important to support smaller farms such as this aswell, otherwise our farming industry will soon be just called Tesco Farms Inc....
I´m moving to the UK in a couple of weeks so I´m really interested.
I´m moving to Hampshire. Can anyone tell me what company sells the cheapest grass-fed beef on that area?.
I got my turkey for Xmas from here.Buy Meat Online | Mail Order Meat Delivery from Pipers Farm

I would not order from Eversfield again. I tend to only buy minced meat and their lamb was extremely greasy.
I'm always looking for cheaper places but Wellhungmeat seem the cheapest so far, depending on what you order!

Cattle - Fordhall Farm
Our free range cattle graze on our chemical free herbal pastures through winter and summer with no other feed (otherwise known as Foggage Farming). All Herefords and Aberdeen Angus, our traditional herd is hardy and accustomed to living outdoors.field&flower meat box delivery farm to door meat delivery serviceOur flock of sheep, like the cattle, live entirely off our traditional chemical free pastures. Our natural woodlands provide all the shelter they could need and our spring fed pools have a ready supply of fresh water. Rotation of these lush pastures also helps to protect them from health problems and so veterinary intervention is only used in the rare emergency
LambTraditionally, Home Farm has reared Hereford cattle due to their quiet temperament and the quality of their meat. The farm keeps a small suckler herd of cows, which conceive and give birth naturally once a year. Calves run at their mothers’ feet until about eight months of age. Once the cattle are weaned, they are fed solely on grass and forage, grazing in clover-rich pastures all year round.This particular breed is slaughtered at no earlier than 26 months of age, which also ensures very flavoursome beef. The cattle travel to the local abattoir, only minutes away, ensuring a stress-free end of life.
Our beef is dry-aged (hung on the bone) for a minimum of four weeks. This is to ensure a very high level of tenderness. Hanging for this long, in this way, is a technique supermarkets simply cannot match. Attributes of our Hereford beef include high levels of marbling, giving that melt-in-the-mouth sensation, and an abundance of deep, rich flavours developed through a grass and forage diet. Our traditional cattle breed is slow-maturing and thrives on a natural grass and forage diet. Studies have shown that cattle reared in this way produce much higher levels of omega-3 and poly-unsaturated fats than when reared intensively. We therefore take pride in our beef being tasty, tender and fresh.The beef you order from field&flower has been carefully managed to ensure a low carbon footprint. The total distance from our farm to abattoir, and abattoir to butcher is only eight miles.
Beef, lamb, porkOur lamb is raised by one farmer and son on a farm in the Mendip hills a few miles away from our butchery in North Somerset. They farm traditional breed lamb that are born and raised outdoor on the hills all year round, feeding on grass and haylage.

fordhall is very good.
field and flower is a bit more pricey, but extremely good products, and even better customer service. If you want some odd cuts or something different, they will do their best and so far have given me everything I've asked for. Including chicken hearts.

very useful information, thanks for this everyone - am off to look and drool with my debit card clutched in my trembling fist
Rosewood Farms, York; The home of Grassfed Dexter Beef
Does what it says
Prompt delivery, very tasty meat, offal selection etc.
Heya I'm also in the UK right now (been living here for 7 years now!) and I order my meat from my local school because it has a farm and a shop to sell their produce and other local farmer produce and they are all grass fed beef, quality meats.
So if you are stuck for places to go, try local farm shops!
Also I believe Sainsburys sell quality meats (they have a great butchers section) and their meats are all sourced from local farms.
Whatever you do don't go to Tesco or Asda, they had problems with the horse meat scandal but Sainsburys didn't!
