Home bred, grass fed, locally produced beef
At Stanford Park Farm, we strive to produce absolute top quality native breed beef. Our heritage pedigree suckler herd is grass fed on traditional permanent pasture. Beef is dry hung on the bone for 28 days to intensify flavour and texture and has plenty of internal marbling which melts away once cooked – resulting in sweet, tender and flavoursome meat with a tremendous eating experience.
