Introducing: Chalk Down Farm
Cooper Foods has launched a new wholesale meat brand called ‘Chalk Down Farm’. The new brand consolidates the fact that Cooper Foods are already one of the premium wholesale butchers and preferred catering meat supplier for many Southern counties, including Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
The Chalk Down Farm brand will cover carefully selected UK beef products sold by Cooper Foods. This includes premium beef burgers in addition to popular beef joints and steaks. For several years Cooper Foods have been producing Beef Burgers from a 50/50 mix of both beef Rib cap and Beef Chuck Roll.
Rib Cap has the fat content of the burger, which is particularly sweet, whilst the Chuck Roll is the lean element which is not only soft and succulent but has no sinew or tough gristle.
With the introduction of the Chalk Down Farm brand, Cooper Foods will now only make burgers that have been made from 100% aged, under thirty-month Steer or Heifer Beef. Seasoned with just salt and pepper, Chalk Down Farm has created a new burger that is exceptional in both flavour and texture and will suit the most discerning menu.
Every brand has a story to tell and the Chalk Down Farm story starts with tradition and of fifty years of expertise. Chalk Down Farm has selected ‘Connoisseurs Choice Beef’ as it’s source of beef. Our supplier has always focused on quality not only selecting the size, weight and conformation of the cattle but also ensuring that the preparation and knife skills are still adhered to with consistency in mind. All the beef is under thirty-months old and is either Steer or Heifer. The beef is then transported to our modern purpose-built facilities in the middle of the county of Hampshire to be then aged for 28 days in our Himalayan Salt Chamber.
After the ageing process is completed, our own in-house butchers, process the meat into the various cuts of meat and burgers that our customers order.
The Chalk Down Farm brand will also include, Lamb products sold by Cooper Foods. Lamb leg, Shoulder, Barnsley Chops, Loin Chops all bear the Chalk Down Farm logo.
