Calving is well underway on the farm! Here’s our newest bull calf, he’s a beef shorthorn cross dexter. This little lad decided to come backwards so it was a trip to the vet late last night for us. Thank you to Airworth Vets for getting him out alive and kicking via C-section.
It’s been a busy day at Marsh Top Farm! We’ve built snowmen, collected ducky eggs, fixed tractors, visited great grandparents and also added to our animal family. Happy Monday everyone!! ⛄️🐷🚜

Why buy British Beef? We can tell you exactly why, but before we do we’d like to give a shout out to Marsh Top Farm shop, a regular at Real Food Ilkley looking forward to seeing you next Sunday at Real Food Ilkley, 4th Feb 10am – 3pm.
….In Britain, some of the highest welfare standards in the world regulate the way that our beef is produced.
No growth-promoting hormones are fed to beef cattle in the UK and antibiotics are only administered if prescribed by a vet.
Every animal can be traced to its mother and place of birth with the British cattle passport system.
Britain’s beef industry is the envy of the world. Breeding from our livestock and genetics from breeds native to Britain are much sought after by farmers in other countries.
Top 10 native cattle breeds are: Highland, Belted Galloway, English Longhorn, Red Poll, White Park, Hereford, British White, Ayrshire, Aberdeen Angus, South Devon,
The distance between each farm and shop is smaller than imported beef. This means fresher meat and less of a carbon footprint.
Buying British beef supports British farmers. In turn, this helps keep the countryside how it looks today. No cows: No countryside!
Beef is naturally rich in protein and it provides eight essential vitamins and minerals that support good health and well-being.
Choosing British beef means supporting British farmers whose work helps to keep the British countryside the way we want it to look: no cows – no countryside!
Why buy British Beef? Because it’s the best in the world and part of our national heritage!
