This week we have the first delivery of Rose Veal from a group of farmers on the Shropshire, Welsh borders. Midshire's Veal is a small cooperative of 5 farmers who are breeding and finishing the calves to a very high standard of welfare. I spent the day looking around the farms and abattoir and was very impressed.
These calves are killed between 8 and 12 months of age and have a natural diet of mothers milk and hay or grass, hence the colour of the meat which changes from the plain white of milk fed veal often found in Holland and Denmark to a richer pink colour.
All our shops will be getting a delivery this week and we will be happy to take any special orders at the farm.
