Westons Rose Veal
Westons Rose Veal calves are reared to high welfare standards and are farm assured under the Farm Assured British Beef and Lamb (FABBL) scheme.
This means that in many aspects they are reared to a higher welfare standard than is required by law. We rear our Jersey and Guernsey bull calves to produce lean Rose Veal instead of them having to suffer the same fate as many other dairy bull calves by being shot at birth.
The calves are reared in small groups with ample space and bedded on straw. They are given a balanced diet that contains all the nutrients they need and are fed milk twice a day. This produces rose veal (pink meat), not white veal created purposely by an unbalanced and deficient diet.
The calves are reared to the age of about 6 months - the same age as many lambs. Then the meat is allowed to hang for roughly 2 weeks before being prepared by the butcher.
Orders may be collected from the farm or delivered by courier.
We also sell at local farmers markets
