The Last Food of England
Sussex bulls are poised with their keepers to impress the judges. Eighty six of these undemanding cattle, yoked together in 1797, pulled a windmill up the downs. They are tough, easy going, and good conservation grazers equally at home on the Isle of Sheppey, in the Romney Marsh or the New Forest's heather and scrub. The breed society is a proud and active one returning to traditional values. The meat is sold by leading butchers in the south east of England, and the obvious choice for people seeking first quality local beef.
