About Lincoln Red Beef
A thousand years of quality
Massingberd-Mundy Lincoln Red Beef brings you the delicious qualities of one of the UK’s oldest and most rare breeds of cattle.
Farmed on a 3,000-acre country estate in the Lincolnshire Wolds, Massingberd-Mundy Lincoln Red Beef is helping the original population of this ancient breed recover through sustainable farming practices.
Standout quality with rich marbling and flavourful succulence
Having been bred for a thousand years, Lincoln Reds were one of the nation’s favourite breeds of beef cattle until the middle of the 20th century when European breeds began to dominate the market.
While Lincoln Reds take longer to mature than European breeds, patience is rewarded with a superior beef which is considerably better tasting, with delicious marbling which adds to the flavour.
With a forage-based diet, Lincoln Reds are less dependent on cattle feed and other resources and they’re more adaptable to regional grazing and the British climate. This has a positive impact on the taste of their meat and it reduces the impact they have on the environment.
While other Lincoln Red cattle have combined many qualities of the original population with the advantages of European breeds, 100% original Lincoln Red cattle retain all the qualities which have made this breed a favourite throughout the centuries.
Reared on a 3,000-acre country estate in the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Massingberd-Mundy Lincoln Red Beef cattle are sustainably and ethically farmed, ensuring delicious beef of the very highest quality.
