Pipers Farm: Meat The Natural Way

Ethical

 

Pipers Farm supplies award-winning meat from land to sea for superyachts all over the world.

Founded in 1989, Pipers Farm is a destination for meat that is produced sustainably and in harmony with nature. Our ethics are deep-rooted to the core of our business. We passionately believe in producing wholesome natural food that has been grown with respect for nature.

 

Grass fed

 

Ruminant animals like cattle and sheep were designed by nature to extract the maximum nutrition from grass. Their complex digestive systems churn and break down grass, plants, and clovers, eking out every drop of goodness. Starchy grains aren’t a natural feature of a ruminant diet and are only given to blast fast-growth onto young bodies.

 

Superfood

 

Nutrition is complicated. Very complicated. It’s a big mash-up of science, politics, and commerce. There are many viewpoints, many arguments and lots of truths, untruths, and half-truths to unpick. Our position is this: over the years saturated fats (as found in meat) have been blamed for everything from heart disease to cancer. But it’s now apparent that the real enemies are processed sugars and starchy, high-carb foods. Just like ruminants, we have foods that our bodies are designed to make the most of.

 

 

A good place to start when thinking about nutrition is with the fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6. You’ll no doubt have heard of them. Our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate a varied diet that allowed them to have a good balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6. The two Omegas worked well together – controlling, amongst other things, excess inflammation in the body.

 

As time has passed and our diets have changed, we’ve lost the Omega balance, erring heavily on the side of Omega-6 at the expense of Omega-3. It’s this imbalance that’s considered to be responsible for many of the common maladies from which we suffer. Grain-fed animals experience a similar problem: grain feeding packs their bodies with carbohydrates that they convert to sugar and lay down as fat. Their Omega balance is off skew and this results in meat that’s giving us more 6 than 3.

 

Grass-fed animals have no such problem.

 

As Nature Intended

 

Furthermore, animals that live in a natural environment, eating a natural grass-based diet offer another vital health-giving substance: bone marrow. Living outdoors in the sun surrounded by all of Nature’s varied bugs and germs means free-ranging animals accrue strong natural immunity – and this immunity is conferred to us through their bone marrow. So whether you simmer it into a broth or spread it on toast, grass-fed bone marrow is an immunity boosting superfood brimming with health-giving properties.

 

Reputation 

Our meat has been recognized for its exceptional quality and commitment to welfare by some fabulous chefs such as Jamie Oliver, Rick Stein, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Clarissa Dickson-Wright, Michael Caines and many, many more!
