Christmas Beef at Turnbull's
In our promise to bring you best quality Beef for Christmas & New Year, Turnbull’s have been out and about sourcing a variety of Breeds. Included in this year’s selection includes the winner of the Acklington Mart’s Christmas Show & the 2nd place Pistola from the MacDuff Christmas Show.
All of our Christmas Beef is being hung for 18-28 days to ensure maximum flavour and tenderness and is then cut and prepared by our skilled team of butchers.
Champion Beef in time for Christmas
On Thursday 2nd December, Turnbull’s master butcher, Peter McEwan visited the Acklington Auction Mart for the annual Christmas Show.
The overall show Champion, a Limousin Steer, produced by Ian & Richard Bell of South Bells Hill Farm was purchased for Turnbull’s by our trusted buyer and judge of the show, Bill Howard.
The breed originates from the South West of France, first coming to the UK in the 1960s and to Scotland in the early 1970s. They immediately became popular as a hardy breed which produced high quality beef that was consistent in meat to fat ratio.
Other Beef purchased for the festive period includes:
- Aberdeen Angus from Ross Wilson at Ingram Valley
- Ling x Angus from Neil Gibson at Willowford Beef
- Limousin from J.M Strother & Son at Fowberry Farm
