Delivery from Graig Farm:

Graig Farm got in touch to see if I would like to try some of their meat and as most people know I am quite particular about the meat I eat so I went on to their website (https://www.graigfarm.co.uk/) to find out more about them.

The first thing I spotted was “We’re specialists in delivering high quality, natural organic food that’s ethically and sustainably produced” – well that’s four big ticks in my book!

Next up was “We’re an independent, family run business committed to sustainable farming, high standards of animal welfare and exceptional quality produce” – Definitely more ticks in the book for that.

Lastly and something I don’t think I have seen before is the farm has gone plastic free so everything is delivered wrapped in butchers paper then packed in a cardboard box with sheep’s wool liner for insulation. Fantastic!

The Meat:

In the box were Lamb Chops, Chicken Thighs, Rump Steaks, Beef Burgers and Lamb and Mint Burgers. Everything was well packaged and the meat was cold even though I left the box sitting for hours before I unpacked it.

First up I cooked both sets of burgers. I don’t think I had realised how big the burgers were before I opened them as 8 burgers between the 4 of us was going to be a lot of food (the kids don’t eat much!).

I haven’t had lamb burgers for ages so I was looking forward to them. Both lots of burgers looked and smelt great.

Cooked on the KJ griddle over the Napoleon Pro 22:

The beef burgers were topped with cheese and gherkin slices with my usual burger sauce underneath. The beef tasted really nice, it had a great strong flavour from well aged beef. The burger was firm to the bite which I think was from a finer grind than I usually have.

The lamb burgers were big so a single one in the bun would have looked better! However, I was having one of each so packed two in! Sitting on top of mint yoghurt, red onion and sliced cucumber. These burgers tasted fantastic, really enjoyed them.

Next up were the rump steaks. Again, these had a great taste from being well aged. Bashed out, rosemary, rapeseed oil then grilled on the Thuros T1 they were fantastic in a roll. Cracking lunch.

The chicken thighs were up next. I wasn’t sure what to cook but I also had some wings to cook so went with one of my favourite wing cooks – Harissa hot wings from Berber and Q using the same rub on the thighs.

Part way through with a lump of walnut adding smoke:

The last cook was with the lamb chops. When I opened up the pack I could see they were top quality.

Best way to cook lamb chops is on cast iron at 500c in the Ooni Pro!

Oh my! These were incredible, such an amazing taste! I wish we had more of them!

Summary:

Some fairly simple cooks but I wanted to see what the meat was like and I wasn’t disappointed. Really good quality meat with a fantastic taste. I like their approach to farming and the environmental element also. Give these guys a try, they are doing good things.
