Family farm in beautiful Orkney producing tasty, tender and distinctive meat.
A long time in the planning we started farming water buffalo on our new small family farm in Orkney in 2013. It's a whole family affair with Russell, Naomi and our three children.
Buffalo are slow-growing, finishing at 28-32 months. A very healthy meat is produced, which is lower in cholesterol and higher in mineral content than conventional beef. The meat tastes a little richer and sweeter than conventional beef. Buffalo are very docile and easy to handle – and our buffalo are no exception, they have just one speed when we are moving them around the farm – SLOW!
