Our nutrition experts

We’ve just launched our new website section ‘Nutrition’. It has all the information you need to know about eating healthily with field&flower. We have three nutrition experts who we’ve spoken to about grass-fed meat!

James Daly who is a strength & conditioning coach, personal trainer and fitness writer, is a loyal field&flower customer. Over the past 12 years he has established himself as one of the country’s most sought after personal trainers.

“I encourage and advise my clients to source quality meats, such as those sold by Field & Flower. High quality nutrient dense meats should be the staple of any healthy individuals diet. Not only is Field& Flower sourcing fresh produce it is also providing its customers with high quality grass fed meats. Grass fed meat is considerably better for your health, richer in nutrients, easier to digest and has a much better taste than standard non grass fed meats. I also believe that is very important to know where the meat that you consume is coming from and with Field & Flower I can trust in their ethos and brand 100%”

Madeleine Shaw who is a qualified nutritional health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Maddy receives a regular meat box from field&flower;this is her take on grass fed meat.

“An animal is designed to eat grass not grain. You can clean up your diet as much as you want but if your not eating the right type of meat you will never get anywhere. I love Field and Flowers approach to their farming using traditional methods and never skimping on anything. The meat always taste unbelievable, its nothing like supermarket meat, you can really taste the difference. When I buy grass fed meat I know I am loading my body up with a high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids as well as vitamin E which fuels my body with energy and keeps my skin glowing.”

Max von Berg, who is a specialist from Conscious Food, is a great advocate for grass-fed meat

He explains that Grass-fed meat is a rich source of B-vitamins, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium and other essential trace minerals. It is also an essential source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fats that have been proven to help those with coronary heart decease, hypertension, arthritis and those with inflammatory and autoimmune conditions. Scientific experiments have determined that if the ratio of omega 6 fats to omega 3 fats exceeds 4:1, people have more health problems. This is especially meaningful since grain-fed beef can have ratios that exceed 20:1 whereby grass-fed beef is down around 3:1. For those of you worrying about fat content I would like to re-assure you that, biologically speaking, it is impossible for a human being to gain weight by eating good-quality animal fats!”

Field&flower’s school scheme

Our School Scheme is a great way to raise money for the school and encourage healthy eating as well as an awareness of where our food has come from and the ethics involved in rearing animals for meat.

How it works:

Your school will appoint a liaison (often a member of the PTFA) who will confer with either James or Amy and the parents. There will be two box sizes for the parents to choose from, small and large, and the contents of these boxes will change with each order for variety.

Once we have determined how often you would like to receive the boxes (usually once every two weeks) we send an email detailing what will be in each of the boxes for the following week. This will then be emailed on by your parent liaison and any parents wanting to purchase a box will let them know. When you know the final numbers all you have to do is let us know how many of each box to provide and we will deliver them to the school on an allocated day to be picked up by the parents.

Benefits:

The parents will get a discount from the usual value of the box and a percentage of the takings will be contributed to the school. The commission % is dependent on the number of boxes ordered each month.

On school collection day cool bags are provided for parents to take the meat home in if they do not want to carry the box home. Parents also give us feedback whenever they want about what cuts they would like in the next box – making it a very personal service.

School fete sponsorship:

We recently sponsored the Honeywell School fete in Battersea, London. We provided free gourmet burgers and sausages for the parents to cook up a storm with. We like to help out our schools as much as possible, we also attend the school Christmas fair with offers for turkeys, gammons and beef ribs.
