At Castlescreen Farm they raise grass-fed Dexter cattle. They do whatever it takes to get the most flavour on your plate. That starts with early mornings and late nights, looking after their Dexter herd. They make sure they’re at home in some of the best pastureland Ireland has to offer, enjoying fresh grass and the free- range life all year round. What they don’t do is add anything unnatural or use intensive farming methods. Their farm is pesticide and artificial fertiliser free.
Dexter cattle may be wee cows, but they are big on taste, producing tender beef with a distinctive flavour. Dexter beef is recognised by high profile chefs for its quality, texture and taste.
They have an on-farm butchery and offer a full butchery service to others. Their beef is all dry aged for 30-35 days, intensifying this superb flavour. Their gourmet burgers, sausages and beef & veg roll are rusk-free.
Grass fed beef offers many health benefits: higher Omega 3 content than mackerel, rich in natural vitamins and low in saturated fats.
