It is some of the most amazing beef we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Thishighland landscape offers rich and fertile grassland. Premium premium Wagyu cattle and pedigree native breeds are nurtured in this amazing environment. To create the marbling, which gives our beef its velvety, buttery texture, the cattle are handled with exceptional care and respect. This beef produces excellent natural British Charcuterie.
Humble by Nature’s home is a working farm just outside Monmouth in the Wye Valley in South Wales. In 2010, when the last tenant retired and handed in his notice, the council decided to sell the farm. Kate Humble and husband Ludo Graham have brought it back to life (from near dereliction) to become an amazing centre for rural skills, cookery and learning about all things connected to environment, farming and food. Native Breeds offer charcuterie courses in amongst the incredible range of other activities available on the farm.
