All our beef is procured from Macbeth’s butchers in Forres. Established 25 years ago, Macbeth’s supply beef that has been home-grown at their farms at Dallas, Moray. From a base of two Highland Cows grazing in front of their house, Macbeth’s have built up a herd of 180 breeding cows all with Highland blood, but most now crossed with the Aberdeen Angus Bull.

Fed on grass and homemade silage with no compound feeds, they produce a high quality beef that is hung for 2–3 weeks to enhance its flavour, which we are sure you will enjoy.
