Greencity recently started sourcing Scottish split peas from the fully Organic Medlock family farm in Aberdeenshire. Freshly harvested in autumn, they’re rich in fibre and protein and full of vitamins and minerals, making a fantastic low-food-miles base for all sorts of dishes.
Pasture-fed ruminants, whether grazing grass or hefted on moors, bring many benefits and the marbling present is a healthy nourishing fat giving marvellous flavours to the meat. Such animals could not be more different from grain fed beasts on densely populated feedlots. Industrialised farming methods are linked with lower welfare standards, felling of rain forests for grain production and GM soy feed. Scottish pasture-fed cattle could not be more different.
