Traditional Butcher Colin Moore likes Blue Grey Beef
|Colin Moore at the door of his traditional
butchers shop in Brampton
For several years Colin Moore, a traditional butcher in Brampton
Cumbria has been selling beef from Blue Grey steers sourced
from Keith Laurie, Snowdon Close, Gilsland, Cumbria.
Mr Moore finds the Blue Grey to be particularly suitable for
his traditional style of butchering because of their good fat-to-lean
ratio, which makes them perfect for the butcher to hang to
mature. He likes to hang his meat for at least ten days.
Colin's customers ask for beef from Blue Grey cattle, as they
like the consistent high quality and the flavour of the meat,
he also sells Highland and Galloway beef.
The meat is all bought locally, direct from known sources
so that Colin can discuss with the farmers his exact requirements
and be supplied with the high quality that the customer demands
from a traditional butcher.
