Heron partners with local producers to ensure the highest quality and freshest ingredients in all of our products. Our commitment to working with local farmers and producers ensures that each item is sustainably sourced, ethically produced and of the upmost quality.
Heron has teamed up with Nunwell Farm to offer Purebred Belted Galloway grass-fed beef.
The Belted Galloway have natural marbling due to their slowing-growing nature and being solely grass-fed.
This creates a rich depth of flavour not found in grain-fed beef, furthermore, their thick fur means they need less fat to protect against extreme weather making the beef lean and healthier with less than 2% fat and high content in Omega 3 & 6.
Put simply, our Belted Galloway produces award-winning beef in terms of tenderness, succulence and most importantly, excellent flavour.
Heron has teamed up with Island Foods. Island Foods meats are traceable from farm to fork and 80% is sourced locally on the Isle of Wight
