People who eat Arden’beef are helping the environment at the same time.
Protecting the environment
Every farm and its environment need to be clean and well looked after. Thanks to their ability to put carbon back into the land, cattle are essential in the fight against climate change. Arden’beef herds are bred on grass pastureland. As they graze, they stimulate grass regrowth, which is important for protecting the earth from erosion by the wind and water.
Farmers are increasingly committed to making sure that their fields are included in their carbon footprint audits and that their contribution to the environment is recognised, from maintaining their land to stimulating biodiversity. By taking into account the importance of access to pastureland, Arden’beef strives to keep cattle grazing, at a time when large-scale farms are being driven off the land and animals don’t even know what colour grass is.
The benefits of a short supply chain
Arden’beef recommends taking inspiration from bovine production methods with a short supply chain. This approach is good for the consumer as well as for the planet. Short supply chains also mean reducing the number of steps between the breeder, within the clearly defined “Ardennes” label, and Arden’beef, who take care of the slaughtering, processing and packaging.
