Lakes farm gears up to host prestigious cattle open day
“Natural England is delighted that the Luing Cattle Society’s Open Day will be held in the Lakes for the first time this summer. Luing cattle are proving to be an excellent native breed to use where conservation grazing is needed and very well-suited to the uplands of Cumbria. It’s great news that the Luings are bringing both commercial and environmental benefits to the farm, and Natural England is very pleased to support the Open Day.”
www.naturalengland.org.ukAlec Smith, Farm Manager at High House Farm, Winster:
“We want to use this event, primarily, to demonstrate to farmers that Luings are an efficient and commercial breed of cow, ideally suited to the rugged, hardy grazing of the Lakes and still capable of making a good price at market. However, we want to remind farmers that, fundamentally, they are food producers. They must never forget the end product that they are creating. With Luings, they can be proud that the food product they are creating not only fits a responsible, environmental agenda but also caters for increasingly discerning, consumer tastes.”

“We are always looking for something new and different to attract customer interest, ideally with a link to our local landscape but – most of all – we want to sell high quality, delicious tasting meat. We have been really pleased with the Luing beef we’ve sold through our shop and are delighted to support local farming, and the open day in Winster. I would say it is one of the best sirloin’s that I have used regarding the quality of the fat and the flavour.“

“Working in a competitive industry, in a busy tourist area, we need to be ahead of the curve when it comes to consumer interest, and we are always keen to introduce our diners to new concepts, flavours and breeds, whilst staying true to the Old Stamp House ethos of quality, heritage and landscape. Luing beef is adaptable to many dining formats – from simple, home cooking to high-end restaurant fare. We will be there on the day to showcase the unique way in which we use Luing beef.”
