We are delighted to welcome back Castlescreen Farm for their second Bank of Ireland Open Farm Weekend event! The farm is run by Damien Tumelty and his family outside Downpatrick.
Dexter cows are native to Ireland, and they’re nowhere more at home than here at Castlescreen.
They love the lush grass, which grows naturally because of all lovely rain we get here in this part of the world.
Our happy cows produce naturally marbled beef that is distinctly succulent and gives a fuller flavour.
At Castlescreen, we dry age our Dexter beef for 30-35 days to really intensify the flavour.
Castlescreen Pedigree Dexter Beef is:
Fine textured, tender grass-fed beef with a distinct flavour
Dark, rich red-brown colour
Rich in natural vitamins and Omega 3. Higher Omega 3 content than mackerel
Low in saturated fats
Recognised by high profile chefs for its quality, texture and taste
Distinctive traditional flavour, unique to grass-fed pedigree Dexter cattle
From contented cattle kept by caring farmers using traditional methods
