Sourced from LA Farms:
In the late 1990s, our founder AK Peer acquired a piece of farmland on the Cape West Coast between St.Helena Bay and Veldrif. This beautiful piece of land lies on the coast of nine bays with a very rich natural flora and fauna of fynbos and birdlife.
It started as an escape from the city for a weekend away and gradually the farm grew into a working farm, as a few animals were kept and an organic vegetable garden and fruit orchard were laid out. When it was time for a family meal, we started eating our own lamb and beef and sharing it with family and friends. Our simple philosophy was farming in the most natural, sustainable way without chemicals and antibiotics and with the knowing of traceability and the ethical treatment of our animals.
LA Farms Angus cattle are pastured reared and enjoy a grass fed diet. The cattle are free from any hormones or routine antibiotics. LA Farms Angus cattle are certified and registered with SAMIC and South African Angus Society.
The origins of Angus, or Aberdeen Angus, goes back to Scotland. We introduced Aberdeen Angus to our farm over 10 years ago and have grown a herd through our stud program. Aberdeen Angus is also known as a very good quality meat. Our marbling content is high for the breed due to our breeding policy. Our carcass grading is consistently an A to B with the result of high-quality steaks, mince, sausage and burger patties. Our marbling is consistent around 1.5 – 2 count out of 11.
