Beef Sales

We have always had a small number of charolais cross calves using our own Rumsden Charolais bulls, which we have fould to be easy calving, and to produce a good commercial beast for the butcher. However, our increasing reputation now means that we are selling more of our pedigree heifers to new breeders, and do not have sufficient charolais cross cattle to provide a full annual supply to one butcher. We are therefore selling direct to customers from our home killed beef, slaughtered and butchered for us in the new cutting plant at Tottingworth Farms at Heathfield, very local, and therefore keeping down the “food miles” to a minimum. We have purchased a number of new cows and heifers for our cross breed herd over the last 18 months, and the aim is to have 20 cows in this section of the business, with the majority hopefully producing calves good enough to be shown at local or national Christmas shows and sold for a premium in this way. With most of our pedigree cattle that are not being retained, being sold for breeding these days, the few purebreds that are not suitable for this, and any crossbred calves of insufficient quality to make show cattle will be sold direct to the consumer, or sold as stores, thus enabling us to maximise our returns from a small crossbred herd.

If you are local to us in Sussex and would like to purchase some Rumsden beef, please phone 01892 653332 for a price list and details of availability.
