In 1793 Isaac Alden founded Aldens Butchers in Oxford. His great-grandson, Leonard, bought Hollands Farm in 1922. Still run by the same family, we have been supplying beef to the business ever since. A dairy herd was established on the farm in 1973 and whilst cows are no longer milked here, every one of our animals is descended from that herd.
Our cattle are reared on what is the opposite to an “intensive” system. They graze on ancient pastures alongside the river Thame for up to 8 months of the year and live in modern, purpose-built barns during the winter. Home-grown hay, grass silage, straw, barley and pulses make up their diet during this period. Whatever the time of year, we believe that providing livestock with our own feed produces the highest quality meat.
The use of artificial fertilisers and chemicals is kept to a minimum on the farm and we work with The River Thame Conservation Trust, Natural England and DEFRA (The Ministry of Agriculture) to protect and enhance the environment at Hollands Farm.
Our herd consists exclusively of Aberdeen Angus and Hereford cattle. These traditional British breeds are ideally suited to our method of farming.
We follow our beef through every step of the process, from the field to your doorstep, to ensurethe highest level of traceability. Working closely with Aldens Butchers in Oxford, we are able to reduce food miles whilst supporting traditional methods of butchery. All this means that a first-rate product is delivered to you every time.
Our beef is aged for a minimum of 28 days at Aldens in temperature and humidity-controlled rooms. It is then processed by Aldens’ Master Butchers into the individual joints you will see in our boxes. Everything is then vacuum-packed in order to keep the meat in peak condition and exceptionally fresh.
We offer a selection of beef boxes to suit your needs:
- Barbecue box
- Premium box
- Everyday box
- Half Everyday box
- Ribs & Roast bundle
- Steak pack
