Buying beef and lamb


Cheap meat usually comes at a price – one paid by the farm animals, your health and the environment.

Buy British and Organic

Most British beef cattle and lambs are reared outdoors and have access to pasture. However, the only way of being sure is to look for ‘organic’, ‘grass-fed’ or ‘access to pasture’ on packaging.

The Soil Association organic standard guarantees that cattle and lambs are given access to pasture.


When you’re eating out ask how the beef and lamb on the menu was reared and whether it’s British.
