Roger and his family have farmed on the rolling pastures of the southern Lakes for generations. They combine their experience with the best modern agricultural practice to rear livestock, such as Holstein Friesian dairy cows and North Country Mule sheep, as well as prime young bull calves, in the best possible conditions.
The young bull calves that provide the Mason’s rosé veal enjoy a varied, nutritious diet and are reared in bright open barns, with thick straw underfoot and plenty of room to roam, interact with each other in and bed down in.
The welfare friendly conditions in which the calves are reared are witnessed by the many visitors that the Mason’s welcome to their farm, from classes of school children, to upmarket fine food retailers and journalists and the taste of the Mason’s rosé veal meat has had the ringing endorsement of at least one Michelin starred celebrity chef.
As well as aspiring to the highest level of animal husbandry, the Masons also take pride in their careful management of the land - Heaves Farm is part of DEFRA’s Environmental Stewardship Scheme and has been recognised as Westmorland’
Keith Gill, Sales and Marketing Director of Tanfield Food, who make Look What We Found! comments:
“We are proud to include this wonderful veal in our new premium ready meal range. Until recently veal has been one of the most under appreciated meats in Britain. But through the efforts of farmers like Roger, and the endorsement of journalists and chefs, people are becoming better informed about British rosé veal. They are beginning to appreciate that they can enjoy rosé veal with its smooth, fine, texture and melt in the mouth flavour, in the knowledge it has been reared to welfare conditions that ethical farmers like the Masons are rightly proud of. In our new recipe we have partnered it with wild mushrooms, onions, cream and brandy for an exceptionally rich luxurious stroganoff.”
