The British White is one of the country’s oldest breeds of cattle. Believed to have been brought over to Britain by the Romans in 55bc; it can certainly be traced back to the 16th Century. In 1940 the British government in fear of invasion shipped this breed to the U.S. to safeguard what it regarded as a piece of national heritage and it is still registered as a minority breed today.
British White’s are a very docile breed that serve a dual purpose as providers of both milk and beef, producing a lean carcass full of flavour. The British White beef is available here has been grazed in a stress free environment to produce a succulent marbled meat which has more importantly been matured for a minimum of three weeks.
