We supply the BALTIC in Newcastle with our organic 100% grassfed Shorthorn beef and Rarebreed pork, our meat is on the menu in both their Six Rooftop Restaurant and the BALTIC Kitchen.


100% Grassfed Shorthorn Beef

We have our own organic 100% grass fed shorthorn (see our farm page), these have been reared and finished on the rich clover pastures of Brignall without any supplementary feeding. The grass fed diet leads to a creamy soft yellow coloured sweet tasting fat which is higher in Omega 3 oils. This is one of the lesser known health benefits of grass fed traditional rare breed meat. It also has a rich natural source of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). The end product is marbled beef giving the meat a unique flavour, being succulent and tender.


Grass Fed Shorthorn

Rarebreed Pork

We stock our own rarebreed pork, find out more about our rare breed pigs here. The meat from the rare breed pigs makes fantastic succulent sausages and bacon!! 


Lamb & Mutton

We have organic lamb on the family farm and we occasionally get organic lamb from Steven Pierson, Hook House Farm, Northallerton from whom we get our organic turkeys at Christmas.



We get our organic chicken from Piercebridge Organic Farm only 13 miles away.


Cross Lanes's own products

We dry cure our own bacon and gammons, these are very popular with our customers, particularly after they've sampled the bacon in our breakfast in the cafe. All our sausages, burgers and kebabs are made with our own homemade seasoning recipes, the chefs work closely with the butchers continuously developing new recipes.


Testimonial: "The large Shorthorn Sirloin we had for last weekend was TERRIFIC! There were 12 of us plus one, we had a young man driving the oven and he did get a bit hot under the collar - kept talking about "let the beef speak for itself" - so it was just plain roasted with several halved Spanish onions and herbs and lots of ground pepper. We had planned "cold cuts" but every scrap was eaten". Kiki & Kurt Angelrath, Norfolk.


Testimonial: "We bought a lovely piece of Topside last weekend. Entertaining people who really know good food, the judgement was that this was the finest beef they had ever eaten. Even children with no great appetite for meat had two or three helpings each – what should have lasted three days was severely hammered by the enthusiastic gannets.” David Wallace-Lawrence (Barnard Castle).


Testimonial: "I have just cooked some of your pork off your farm and we all agreed it is far better than supermarket pork .... Absolutely lovely”. Jenna.
