Frequently Asked Questions
All the beautiful beef that we supply is born and raised in Scotland, grazing on the lush pastures only found in this part of the world. Athleat insist on full traceability details so that we can track the beef right back to the farm of origin. Read more here.
Is your beef organic?
No, but don't confuse 'organic' with 'high quality'. Extensively reared, grass fed cattle which receive absolutely minimal medication produce the best beef in the world. For more information please see a recent publication by the Food Standards Agency here and our 'Grassfed or Organic' article.
