‘The snack that puts the protein back’

Why Rare Breed?

Simply put, because we believe that beef that has been reared in a totally free-range and stress-free environment, feeding on grass, hay and silage, produces a meat that is not only succulent but also full of flavour.

We only buy the finest pedigree rare breed beef born and reared in the UK.

All of the livestock is bought from local producers, offering full traceability.

This is vital to us, to ensure that the cattle have led stress free had a free range lifestyle.

These rare breeds need a longer time to mature and do not grow to the same size or as quickly as the commercial continental cross breed cattle. It is this slow growing nature that gives the meat its flavour and is why it is renowned by many of the top chefs.

All our beef is for hung for up to 21 days to ensure tenderness mixed with a great taste

The only breeds we buy are as follows: Angus, British White, Old Gloucester, Sussex Red, English Longhorn, Red Poll, Shorthorn, Dexter, Belted Galloway and White Park.

Simon & Carol Kennedy, Founders of BigHorn Biltong

BigHorn Biltong developed through a love for good food, fine beers and a desire to escape the rat race of corporate business. I am well travelled and a passionate follower of both national and international rugby, occasionally dabbling in a little local cricket and always up for a round of golf! I am a typical carnivore that enjoys the occasional snack and very good beers and have become tired of the usual crisps, pork scratchings (yep they are still around), olives and peanuts. They always left me feeling cheated and wanting more…

Now just entering the prime of life and needing to take care of the body I am now left with, I have become more aware of the need for a more healthy snack option while continuing to enjoy the sport and drink of my choice. Which is where biltong comes in…

A tasty nutritional snack made from british rare breed, grass-fed cattle brought to you through a passion for wanting to get things right - created in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside by myself and my partner, Carole. Abi, Carole’s daughter is instrumental in supporting us both at festivals and with the social media aspects of our website.

BigHorn Biltong… wow… now there’s a name! The fun we have had over the table laughing, squirming and generally giggling about all sorts of connotations. But seriously our passion for starting with only the best ingredients that being rare breed British beef led us to the obvious conclusions. We hope you enjoy our biltong as much as we do and welcome all comments, online or just pick up the telephone.

In today's health conscious world many people are concerned about what they eat, where it has originated from and how it has been processed. At BigHorn Biltong we believe that by starting with only the best ingredients - fully traceable rare-breed British beef and non-irradiated, GMO-free spices - we aim to satisfy this hunger for information, before the decision to buy is made (excuse the pun ;)).

We decided right from the start not to use potassium sorbate as a way to extend shelf life even though it can be found in a number of herbs and spices (but why add to this eh!). Additionally, not to use any form of vinegar to ensure that our ethics and conscience were absolutely clear in the eternally moving debate of "is vinegar gluten-free?"!

Not all biltong is the same - however all of our biltong is absolutely 100% gluten-free and is therefore suitable for people who have coeliac disease or gluten sensitivity.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through Paleo Certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any paleo certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 

Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly, and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products. Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability. The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.
