Marbled Meats – Northall, Bedfordshire

Located in the foothills of the Chilterns in Bedfordshire, Rob Pratt proudly carries on his family’s farming tradition. The family has been farming in the area for nearly 150 years and Marbled Meats is a family run business, focused on producing the finest quality, home produced, grass reared beef and lamb.

Rob manages Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) beef cattle and sheep at Marbled Meats near Northall in Bedfordshire. In 2015, Marbled Meats won a Gold award in the Quality Standard Mark’s England’s Best Sirloin Steak competition. The Wagyu beef cattle and traditional English Longhorn beef cattle are raised outdoors on pasture using rotational management, grazing one section of pasture before being moved to fresh fields. This type of management allows grass to recover before the animals return to graze again; it also keeps the soil properly fertilised and minimises the build-up of internal parasites, thereby avoiding reliance on chemical treatments.

Rob also manages 2,500 breeding ewes at the farm. In 2005, he founded Breeding Vision Ltd., a specialist sheep genetics business, and was the first UK farmer to import composite sheep genetics from the New Zealand-based Rissington breedline. Today, the business is home to the UK nucleus flocks for the Primera and Highlander composite breeds.

The sheep and beef cattle at Marbled Meats are also Certified Grassfed by AGW and are fed a 100 precent grassfed diet, and are raised outdoors on pasture within a 25-mile radius from the farm.

In addition to being Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, the sheep and beef cattle at Marbled Meats are also Certified Non-GMO by AGW, proving the livestock are managed without genetically engineered/modified feed, supplements or ingredients.

Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, Certified Grassfed by AGW and Certified Non-GMO by AGW beef and lamb is available for retail and wholesale purchase direct from the farm. Check the AGW directory for details. The Marbled Meats catering trailer is also available for weddings and parties, farmers’ markets and shows, serving a selection of dishes produced using fully traceable, home-produced meats.
