We raise our own beef cattle on our family farm in East Devon, where the pastures overlook the Jurassic coast. From our careful breeding program to the home-grown diet our animals receive, the management of our herd is carried out according to strict animal welfare guidelines, including those required by the Red Tractor Food Assurance Scheme. We use an abattoir less than eight miles away from our farm, minimising this potentially stressful journey for the animals; on reaching Greendale Farm Shop, each carcass is hung and dry-aged for a minimum of three weeks, to allow it to mature, then expertly prepared by our skilled butchers. We take great pride in all our beef here at Greendale – not only because it’s exceptionally delicious and tender, but also because it’s fully traceable back to our farm.

Butcher's Tips

Topside comes from the long inner thigh muscle of the animal, which is what makes it so lean. When the meat is rolled and hand-tied, it’s traditional to secure a layer of fat to the top of the joint to help keep it moist during cooking – but it’s easy to remove this if you wish.

How to Cook

Pre-heat your oven to 230°C/gas mark 8. Place your Topside in a roasting pan and brown in the oven for 20 minutes. Then remove the pan, add a little water to it, and turn the oven down to 150°C/gas mark 2. Return the joint to the oven and cook for 25 minutes for every 500g in weight. When the joint has cooked, remove it from the oven, wrap it in foil and leave it to rest for at least ten minutes before serving.
