We supply beef in either 5kg or 10kg assorted boxes. Or you can visit our small on farm store and choose what you would like. We do encourage folk to take a variety of cuts, mixing the more expensive pieces (eg: fillet, sirlion) with cheaper (eg: pot roast, mince). This way you will get something for every day and special occassions.
For example mince for quick mid week suppers and steaks/roasts for special occassions, burgers for kids tea or bbq’s.
A pot roast (sometimes called plate or boiling beef) comes from the muscley part of the animal that does a lot of work (the lower leg) so will need long slow cooking, but is absolutely tender, sweet and delicious after 3 or 4 hours. Throw in some root veg and onions and herbs/spices and you’ve got a lovely comforting casserole or smart dinner party dish!
Rib-roasts are very popular but bear in mind there are only about four per animal so if this is what you would like be sure to book it ahead, similarly with fillet steak.
There is some flexibilty for variety of cuts in discussion with the butcher but I like to keep it fairly straigtforward for reasons of cost and simplicity.
Our butcher is absolutely excellent with years of experience of not only butchering but selecting quality cattle. The shop is very clean and organised and a family run award winning business in the heart of Huntly.

You can be absolutely sure that our beef is 100% organically produced, born and raised entirely on our farm. As we only have 30 cows we know each cow and calf individually. We do not buy in any cattle, so all our cows are home-bred. The Aberdeen Angus breed is a traditional, native slow growing breed. This is why the beef tastes so fantastic because it matures slowly till 18 months old and is grass fed. When your are thinking about buying Coldwells Organic Beef remember that it is like selecting a quality single malt whisky or fine wine – top quality! You won’t find it in the supermarkets!
Potential customers are more than welcome to come and have a look round at the farm before you buy. Just give us a call.
We also produce lamb. Lambs are born and live outside for their entire life and stay with their mothers for about 5 months grazing pastures. They are not housed at all. As they slowly fatten, grass is supplemented by home produced organic silage, swedes and a little barley.
What you get for half a lamb:
2 packs of chops (4 or 5 in a pack)
1 rolled & boned shoulder or diced (1kg)
1 leg (approx 1-2kg)
1 lamb shank
- Mince (1kg)
What our customers say…
We had an amazing 3 rib organic rib roast from Coldwells Farm. The flavour and texture of the meat was great and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing a meal with visitors staying for the weekend. There was so much meat on the rib we even managed 4 portions of stovies the following day and we will be eating casserole this evening all from the same joint! This joint just keeps giving! (New customer, January 2018)
Had burgers on Saturday, mince Sunday and Monday. Loving them so much will be in touch for more (New customer, February 2018)
Just a note to say how much we are enjoying the beef I collected last week. We had the roast at the weekend, which melted in the mouth and had great flavour. I have eaten a fair few steaks in my time, and try to remember where I have had good ones, and I can honestly say that the fillets we had last night (even when cooked by my own fair hands!) were the best I have ever tasted. My wife agreed!
We had a Jamie Oliver beef casserole last night – a recipe to cheer a weary soul…and it did 🙂 Excellent roasting by Andy and incredible beef from Sarah and Paul’s farm…yum, yum!September 2011-10-25

A 5kg mixed box will fit into one of the drawers of a domestic fridge freezer.
You can collect from the farm or we can arrange delivery at no extra cost.. Payment on delivery, cash/BACS or cheque
Sausages and burgers are made with organic spices, natural casings and no colouring or preservatives, which we source from Scobie and Junior, butcher suppliers in Glasgow. All the ingredients are listed on their website. As our sausages and burgers do not contain preservatives you must eat them within 2 days (keep refridgerated) or freeze straightaway.
We also grow an acre of wheat on here which produces about half tonne which we then process in small quantities for our own bread-making, selling the surplus to shops and artisan bakers. It is 100% wholemeal and organic, dried and winnowed and milled here on the farm. It is very tasty and nutritious and is perfect for making wholemeal bread, pastry and pancakes. Best results are if you mix it with some strong white bread-making flour either as a half and half mix or 1/3 white.
