Sirloin steaks sold out as beef returns to Argyll Country Market
A KINTYRE farmer is very pleased with buoyant beef sales in his first venture at direct selling.
William Taverner, who farms 30 Galloway cattle at Gobagrennan near Campbeltown, sold three quarters of a 300kg carcass as beef cuts at Argyll Country Market.
Mr Taverner said: ‘ We had a great turnout considering it was such a wet day and sold out of sirloin steaks. My son Nathan thoroughly enjoyed himself on the stall.
‘A German lady has given us five stars for the sausages, which is praise indeed. We have just sent the beast away for the December sale, when due to customer demand we will have rib eye steaks.
‘It has been very exciting, although it is always nerve-wracking taking on a new venture.’
