THE PEOPLE


steve ramshaw

Northumbrian-based Steve Ramshaw came into farming 25 years ago after
a career in construction management, setting up Northumbrian Quality Meats at West Woodburn, Hexham five years later to add value to the beef and lamb he was producing. Going on to employ 10 full-time staff supplying top quality beef and lamb across the UK, he has won numerous awards and been featured on TV shows including The Best of British (Hairy Bikers), TV Food Heroes (Gary Rhodes) and The Great British Menu. “My interest in Wagyu came about some 15 years ago after a recommendation from a top chef and I spent time in Canada and the USA studying Wagyu production before bringing embryos back home to start my herd. I believe Wagyu has the potential to be the terminal breed of choice in the UK because of its exceptional eating quality.”
