Featured Steak - Blonde d’Aquitaine

Best of British at Blackhouse

The Blonde d’Aquitaine is one of the most popular beef cattle in France and originates from the Aquitaine district in the South-West of France. This includes the areas in and around the Gavonne Valley and Pyrenees. Their hardiness across climes is a key feature of the Blonde breed, with our selected cattle thriving in their northern base of Lancashire. Interestingly the breed’s natural muscle power was utilised for pulling weapon carts during the First World War, and as late as 1945. Hardy and docile in nature, their strength is underpinned by a surprisingly light bone structure. If you’re in for excellent tasting, lean and tender beef, then enjoy some of the finest right here.

Breeder details: Farmer John Valiant. Shire Farm, Oldfield, Poulton-le-Fylde
