Our Approach

Wee Flowers. Big Flavour.

Jackie & Damien are perfectly positioned to naturally produce Dexter beef that is better for you and better for the planet.

The grass that grows in this part of Ireland is naturally high in white clover which is natural and organic and gives Castlescreen beef its incredible flavour.

If you look a bit closer at the beef industry around the world, you’ll find that most commercial cattle are fed largely or partially on a grain diet. This is not ideal for animal and human health. Add the fact that a lot of grain is imported from around the world and you’ve also added many food miles to your plate long before gets to your kitchen!

Castlescreen Farm is certified by the Pasture Fed Livestock Association. Ensuring their beef and lamb are raised 100% on pasture, 100% of the year, WITHOUT any fertilisers or pesticides.

The grass diet produces flavourful fats that are also healthier and meat that is naturally high in valuable nutrients that include zinc and iron, phosphorous, potassium and sodium.

Our Dexter beef is also high in beta-carotene, vitamin E, catalase, glutathione and superoxide dismutase, which are all good anti-oxidants. 

“We’re big believers in putting more in to get more out – and that means looking after our farm in every way we can so our Dexters are happy and healthy. Looking after our trees, our hedges, our waterways and our soil is better for everyone, now and in the future.”
