Wales: Botanic Garden launches organic meat

by Redaktion (comments: 0)

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is launching its own brand of organic meat with Welsh Black cattle and lambs. The animals were originally brought to the park to help manage the grassland, and now will be used to produce meat which will be sold directly to visitors. Farm manager Tim Bevan states the sheep and cattle play an important part in helping maintain the meadows through grazing, and it is a logical step to produce meat as the garden looks to develop new sources of income, BBC reports.

Around a dozen cattle a year and ten to twenty lambs a month will be used for business. A small abattoir in a village close by and a neighbouring butcher to prepare the cuts will be involved, so only a few miles of transportation are necessary and will make the produce as environmentally friendly as possible. Mr Bevan believes that since there is a lot of concern about food, it is important to people to come to the park. The meat is advertised and sold in boxes of various cuts at the garden's visitor centre. "What we are trying to do is build up a customer base of 40 to 50 people who want a regular supply of meat," Mr Bevan says.  "We will try to meet the local demand."
