Welcome to Forest Beef
Working with the forestry commission Forest Beef have built up a herd of long horned cattle. We aim to produce some of the Southwest’s most unique and great tasting beef, and also help to restore deforested areas literally from the grass roots up. Long horns being more hardy stand up to forest conditions and are more resilient to disease.

More than 50 years devoted to great farming!
Our farm has been in our family for more than 50 years. and we have always been proud of our heritage and giving our animals the best life ever.
We are totally focused on keeping a balance with our local ecosystem. As such we have teamed up with the Forestry Commission to bring our local forest back to life.
Introducing our native Longhorn cattle into the forest is helping to bring our native butterflies back and support the delicate ecosystems needed for these creatures to flourish.
This in turn benefits the superb taste of our beef. Our cattle have a unique diet that makes it stand out from other similar cattle and breeds.

Did you know that cows have their own nurseries for their babies?
We will often see one mother cow keeping guard amongst all the little ones while their mums are off doing their daily chores. Such as eating breakfast, scratching their backs with their horns, cleaning themselves or simply sunning themselves!
It is a hard life being a cow!
