Our beef is produced as a by-product of our pedigree breeding programme from animals registered or birth notified by the Dexter Cattle Society, we do not cross them with any other breed. Each pack of our beef carries the Society's Certification Mark assuring you of its authenticity and provenance.
Our cattle are born and raised on our smallholding and travel just six miles to our local abattoir in the next village keeping stress to a minimum. The carcase is matured in the traditional way before it is expertly cut and packed to our exacting standards for you to enjoy.
Our 'Elite' herd health status is very important as healthy cattle means less reliance on antibiotics preventing residues from entering the food chain. Our beef is produced to rigorous hygiene standards in recognition, we have been awarded the highest food safety rating by Ceredigion County Council.
Our cattle have been raised in a sustainable and ethical manner. Our beef is not mass produced yet provides real value for money. From the beginning of the journey to the very end we never compromise on quality as we believe that is something that keeps our loyal customers returning to us time after time.
Since we do not operate a farm shop per se, our beef is usually sold via our mailing system. Twenty one days before the next carcase is due for cutting we contact you and send a current price list. Should you decide to place a request, this gives you the opportunity to specify any cutting/packing preferences in advance - folk who live on their own find this aspect of our service very useful as many retail outlets do not cater for individual portion sizes.
We offer a number of different boxes

Like most people, we used to purchase the majority of our meat from the supermarket for convenience and price.
I suppose we just accepted that beef was frequently tough or dry or full of water and sometimes a combination of all three.
Needless to say when planning that special occasion, beef was very rarely on the menu.
We knew little about where the beef came from other than 'the UK' or how the animal had been cared for, the age, breed and what it had been fed on. We also gave little thought to the animal's last journey and the processes involved to prepare the meat for sale such the distance it had travelled, the method and length of maturity and how all these things had affected the quality of the beef that we bought. All that changed when we moved to our smallholding in Wales and started to produce beef from our herd of Dexter cattle as a by-product of our pedigree breeding programme. We simply could not believe the difference the beef was sublime.
In 2010, we felt the time was right to share our best-kept secret and offer some of our delicious Dexter beef for sale. Of course, we still feel really privileged to be able to enjoy such wonderful beef and when friends arrive for dinner we remain safe in the knowledge that the meal we provide will be a memorable one - for all the right reasons.
Look forward to hearing from you.......
