Without a doubt, as

a nation Britain

continues to

diversify its diet,

discovering fresh

world flavours and opting for more meatfree

meals throughout the week. Having

said that, the popularity of the Sunday

roast has not been dented. More people

are aware of modern ideas of eating just a

little less meat as well as caring about the

quality of farm environments for animals

like the lambs, cows and pigs that end up

as the crowning glory of one of the nation's

most well-known dishes. At Piper's Farm

in Devon concentrates on grass-fed beef

produced in harmony with nature.

Pipers Farm is encouraging

consumers to stop fuelling the growth

of this 'Victorian workhouse style of

beef farming' by reducing their meat

consumption and opting for beef that is

reared in harmony with nature. Troubled by

the continued global rise of Concentrated

Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs),

a system designed to fatten up cattle

more quickly for the mass production

of affordable meat, Pipers Farm wants

to help consumers to better understand

their role in improving the environment

and the nation's health, so they can better

reassess their options when it comes to

buying beef.

Turning their backs on industrialised

farming methods nearly three decades

ago, Peter and Henri Greig, who founded

Pipers Farm in 1989, work with other

family-run farms to slowly rear their native

Red Ruby cattle. This traditional method

of farming has minimal impact on the

environment and the cattle's natural

lifestyle results in award-winning and

nutritious beef.

Peter Greig, founder of Pipers Farm,

explains: "Our global meat consumption

is on a seriously unhealthy trajectory, and

so it's little wonder that intensive farming

is growing in the cattle industry. These

unnatural and unhealthy food production

systems see cattle, which are ruminant

animals, kept inside small pens and

pumped full of antibiotics. They're then

fattened up on cereal and grains, which

their digestive system can't take, resulting

in diabetic-like symptoms. This is all

carried out in the name of producing a

juicy steak at the right price, but at a huge

cost to our health, the environment and

local farming communities. We are proud

to wave the flag for family farms who

are working in harmony with nature and

are calling for more consumers to resist

the rise of industrial farming methods

by feeding their families nutritious food

grown as nature intended."

Seeing red

Founded in 1989 by Peter and Henri

Greig, Pipers Farm now works with 25

other small family-run farms across Devon

and Somerset, helping to preserve their

passion, knowledge and skills, while

feeding families, sustaining communities

and innovating for the future.

Spending their entire lives outside, the

native Red Ruby Cattle are perfectly suited

to the Devon landscape and its natural

resources. The calves build up their
