Cape Veld Beef available again.

Dear Reader

We have not had Cape Veld Beef on the market since November 2013.

However starting this week, through Farmer Angus, we are going to have Cape Veld Beef on the market. We envisage that Farmer Angus will continue with Cape Veld Beef until November.

In addition to guaranteeing you meat that has not been raised on grain (cattle are herbivores and not grainivores) we pay the farmer producing the beef for us a premium over the market price which is the exact opposite of current market practices where cancer inducing, environment destroying grain fed beef gets a higher price than healthy, soil building grass fed beef.

cape veld beef roller marks, sept 2014

The last point I would like to make about Cape Veld Beef relates to what you see above. These are what are called roller marks and the various letters mean various things. There are a lot of butchers providing so called grass fed beef but they don’t have their beef roller marked so you simply cannot trust what they say. Here is more about the illegal selling of free range/grass fed/pasture reared/organic meat. 

The roller mark above means the following. CAPEVEL is the trademark registered by me for Cape Veld Beef, A is for A grade which is less than 2 years old, 3 is for conformation which is good muscling, 2 is for the fat cover (supposedly the best) and SLCK is the abattoir (Swartland Volstruise in Malmesbury).

Our butchery procedures remain exactly the same. The carcasses are dry aged for 14 days before processing. We use the best spices we can buy. Non irradiated etc. Spencer, our master butcher of 50 years experience, still runs the show.

Thanks for choosing food that is NOT irradiated, genetically modified, poison sprayed, nutrient depleted, adulterated, reconstituted, shelf life stabilized, tasteless, extruded, dye-enhanced, government and supermarket-sanctioned pseudo-food.

New grass fed beef venture. Farmer Angus doesn’t supply any butchers anymore.

As of today I will not be supplying any butchery with beef from our farm.

I am in the process of building a small meat processing plant on our farm where I will process our Spier Pasture Reared Beef.

For clients/butcheries who do want guaranteed grass fed beef I have teamed up with the Durr Family of WLA to form a partnership called Cape Veld Beef.

Cape Veld Beef

We guarantee two things. First that the farmer gets paid more than the feedlot price and second that the animal has had no grains or growth hormones.

1. For grass fed cattle or veldbeeste the farmers always get paid a discount to feedlot, usually R2 per kg less, sometimes R1 per kg less.

2. 99% of the beef market is feedlot cattle that have been artificially fattened very quickly. None of the artificial stimulants will be employed for a Cape Veld animal.

We have deliberately called it Cape Veld Beef to encompass the Western and Eastern Cape so that we can guarantee supply year round.

If you are a butchery who wants grass fed beef then please contact Toit Durr on 082 454 6801 and if you are a farmer who wants to supply Cape Veld Beef then contact me on 082 379 4391

Thanks

Angus
