About

We have a herd of about 50 pedigree Dexter cattle on our small, organically managed farm in North East Fife near St.Andrews. Our Dexter beef is certified as being 100% grass fed by the Pasture for Life Association (See https://www.pastureforlife.org/profile/P212) and we are nearing the end of our organic conversion with the Soil Association.

Dexter cattle are a small and hardy native breed of cattle (descended from the small, black cattle of the Celts) and produce delicious, juicy and highly marbled beef. Our cattle spend their entire lives outside – so much more healthy for the animals – where they graze in our clover, herbal and wildflower rich pastures and woodlands during the summer and eat our own hay during the winter.

Being organic means that we don’t apply any artificial chemicals or sprays to our grass, clover and wildflower rich pastures so our Dexter beef is as about as natural that you can get. It is also great for birds, bees and other insect pollinators.
