Hampton Estate Naturally Reared Newsletter October 2019

The next Hampton Beef Day is on Friday 25th October and already orders are coming in for our Pasture for Life prime quality beef, our Hampton wild venison, our special steak pies, our Hampton Herby Sausages and Beef Bangers and even 100% Hampton beef burgers. We will be open from 10.30am and fresh coffee, tea, cake and biscuits will be ready for you and I am sure that there will be lots of autumnal chat, which is always such a pleasure.

It was a delight to meet so many new customers at our September Beef Day and we look forward to welcoming you back and bringing your friends. Very many thanks to everyone for getting in the Hairy Handlebar mood and so kindly contributing financially to the two lads (one being a Godson) who have just cycled from Bishop’s Stortford to Tokyo raising money for Movember and the Ian Williams Foundation. We transferred the fantastic sum of £500 to their charitable account and they have sent their sincere thanks to all at Hampton for such generosity. £10 for a beef bap and a beer proved a winner!

There are only three certified Pasture for Life farms in Surrey and we represent the western half of the county. The other two are in Redhill and Woldingham respectively. This is the accreditation for the finest beef possible, and please send over your order to ensure we have your beef ready for you. Steaks, cuts and joints are all available, and it’s probably time to stock up with braising steak, stewing steak and some prime mince for those yummy autumnal recipes of beef daube, steak and kidney pies and the casserole that includes at least half a bottle of red. There is no need to buy in bulk if that’s not your thing, and an order for half a kilo of mince or a small roasting joint is as important as a 5kg sirloin joint.  Our special steak pies are ready to order (family or individual sizes), there will be Hampton Herby sausages and Hampton Beef Bangers galore (packs of six sausages) and Hampton 100% beef burgers are always available for those still thinking summer barbeque thoughts. Don’t forget that we also have Hampton wild venison which is becoming more popular every month. A steak or two cooked hot and quick is a rare delicacy whilst a haunch will always impress and is mouth-wateringly delicious.

It was good to hear at the end of last month that the latest national study into red meat found that eating red meat is not harmful after all, and is to be encouraged, which luckily is something we have always supported. We also adhere to the notion of eating less red meat, but we would qualify this by encouraging everyone to eat less but eat the best quality possible.

The cows are grazing around the park for the last time before they head to their winter fields. Their calves look wonderfully well and continue to suckle their mothers in the most natural way possible and their winter coats are just beginning to show.

We really look forward to seeing everyone on Friday 25th October for a good beef catch up and please, please put your order in now to Helen to avoid any disappointment helenjackson@hamptonestate.co.uk. If you would like help or advice on any recipes or quantities we are more than happy to help so do ring or email.
