F.A.Q.

 

 

Freezing at the point of cutting
preserves the freshness, colour, texture, flavour and nutritional value of the meat. Meat tends to lose fluids quickly when cut thus draining taste and tenderness, instant freezing prevents this. Freezing is the best preservative – no E-numbers required. Blast freezing seals in the goodness naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have an online shop?
We used to be we are now so busy in the shop that we are non longer able to fulfil any online orders. By selling directly over the counter we can also ensure the meat we sell is of the highest quality, when you, the customer, gets it.

Where can we buy your produce?
We have several outlets at the moment: You can call in at the Peak District Farm Shop at Stanshope (but please call us first on 01335 310436 to check we're open when you want to visit). Alternatively you can buy our meats frozen or fresh by arrangement from The Threshing Barn at Lower Lady Meadows Farm, Bradnop, Leek, Staffordshire ST13 7EX (Tel: 01538 304494).

What is blast freezing?
The blast freeze process requires that food be reduced from a temperature of +20ºC to –3ºC in no more than 240 minutes.
It maintains food quality –colour, texture, flavour, structure and nutritional value are all locked in. Delicate food surfaces are protected as rapid chilling stops an “ice skin” forming which otherwise dehydrates and damages the products’ appearance
Blast freezing also helps to keep the food looking good. The slower the food freezes, the larger the ice crystals formed; large ice crystals can damage food, dry it out and break down the physical structure leaving you with an unrecognisable product
Damaging bacteria is rendered dormant
