At Earl Stonham Farms we specialise in the production of pure Wagyu beef from our herd of 450 cattle using traditional farming methods. The 600 acre farm in the Suffolk countryside has been laid out specifically for the well-being of these cattle, with plentiful high quality summer grazing and crops for winter feeding. In winter our cattle are housed in open-fronted sheds to keep them warm and dry, and for the preservation of the farm’s pastures.
Wagyu is an old Japanese breed of cattle which has an extraordinary ability to store fat actually within its muscles. This fat is much higher in soft, monounsaturated fat (as in olive oil) and much lower in hard, saturated fat than normal beef. This helps to give the meat it’s special deliciousness and tenderness.
Please watch the videos on this website to learn more about us and our cattle and how we produce the unique quality of beef which we proudly call Earl Stonham Pure Wagyu.
Should you wish to purchase the beef please contact one of the two distributors shown below.
For many years we have been privileged to supply our beef to some of the country’s finest chefs and this is done exclusively by Aubrey Allen who are based in Coventry. Lidgates in West London supply beef to the public through their retail butchery. Lidgates are widely regarded as one of the country’s finest retail butchers and is now run by the 5th generation of the Lidgate family. Because we supply beef to both our distributors throughout the year customers can be assured of receiving fresh meat whenever they require it.
