Our home-bred Dexter cross Devon cattle graze all spring, summer and autumn on land under ‘Higher Level Stewardship’, a scheme to promote wildlife friendly farming. In the winter the cattle are supplemented with home-grown feeds allowing them to be reared in a stress-free traditional manner.
The Dexter is the smallest of the native British breeds with a wonderfully distinctive texture and flavour. We cross this with the Devon Ruby Red breed which produces the same rich Dexter taste and has subsequently won us Gold and Silver awards in the annual ‘Taste of the West’ competition, as well as star ratings in the Great Taste Awards.
“Wow! This is stunning, a truly incredible piece of meat with no compromise on flavour, a great cross of breeds, and simply the best piece of beef I have eaten in a long time”
TOTW Judge Tim Maddams (From River Cottage)
All the beef is hung for two to four weeks to enhance the flavour and tenderness. It is then cut and vacuum packed ready to use or freeze, making it ideal for modern busy families. Our Beef is available in great value meat boxes or cut to order into all types of joints, succulent steaks, lean mince, burgers and sausages.
‘Beef cuts beautifully, with flavour oozing taste from field to plate; grass, sunshine happy cattle.’
Great Taste Awards 2013
”The juiciest cut of beef we’ve tested in a long time. Clean tasting, sweet meat. We loved the steak, marbled throughout. We could almost taste the Devonshire grass”
