Our Pedigree Dexters

One of the ways we manage the meadows is with our pedigree herd of Dexter cattle.

We use them for selective, methodical grazing. Unlike any other breeds, they happily munch away at invasive species like Himalayan balsam and scrub. Then, when they move on to pastures new, their hoof-marks and dung create exactly the right conditions for herbs and wild-flowers to thrive.

Of course, we also benefit from a ready supply of slow-grown, flavoursome beef, with distinctive grass-fed marbling.

MORE ABOUT OUR DELICIOUS,
SUSTAINABLE  BEEF

SLOW-GROWN & FULL OF FLAVOUR

Our pedigree Dexter cattle are remarkable beasts.

They have a placid nature, they make for great mothers, and they thrive on the type of invasive undergrowth that other, more commercial breeds can’t stomach – like bracken and brambles.

In fact, if you were to design a machine to care for the herb-and-flower-rich meadows of the Wyre Forest, it would look much like a Dexter. For example, the ‘grab and rip’ eating action leaves a varied sward height. The dainty hoofs open up the seedbeds. And the rich dung contributes the right mix of nutrients.

Also, it’s a highly-selective, sustainable process. Each year, different tracts of land are set aside for hay-making, providing herb-rich supplementary fodder, to see the cattle through the winter months. 

And, as a by-product, we get this incredible beef – it’s slow-grown and flavoursome, with distinctive ochre-coloured marbling, and high in Omega 3-to-6.

CHECK AVAILABILITY AND ORDER BEEF

Most of our beef is sold fresh on the day it arrives from the butchers. In order to avoid disappointment, please call us to pre-order beef – you can specify the cut and size that you prefer. We will then notify you when the fresh beef is available.

We also carry a limited amount of frozen stock, so please contact us to find out current availability.
