Dexter Cattle Meat Prices

We at Dexter Cattle Company are passionate about raising happy and healthy cattle for our local communities in Prince Edward Island.  Since you asked for it we are continuing our beef CSA program for 2021.  (CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture which connects local consumers to local foods).

Our CSA subscription offers a monthly box containing 20 lbs of grass-fed, grass-finished certified organic beef for 6 months; that amounts to 120 lbs of meat delivered to your door.  The first box should be arriving to you at the end of June and the last box will be delivered to you in late November.  Each box will contain different cuts depending on the season.  Think lean ground organic beef and steaks in the summer with more organic roasts in the fall.  All cuts are vacuum packed and frozen extending the quality of the beef to at least one year.

Uses/benefits of Dexter Cattle Meat

Dexter beef is naturally more tender than other beef and contains more Omega-3 fatty acids. The cattle are a hardy breed that live on grass all year round and don’t need veterinary attention except in extreme cases. They are truly free range. Dexter cattle are a mountain breed that is well-adapted to the harsher landscape of Ireland’s rocky fields. They thrive on low-quality pastures and will also eat weeds and unwanted vegetation. Their small size and weight also ensure that they do less damage to damp, water-logged land. They are more agile than larger animals and can climb better to reach awkward spots bigger cattle cannot. 

I had never tasted Dexter meat previously, so I was very keen to sink my teeth into a nice steak. The first thing I noticed was the flavour. It reminded me of what beef used to taste like when I started as a butcher, 50 years ago. The Japanese came up with the term umami, meaning savoury, and Dexter beef has that in spades. A big, beef flavour with a small amount of very tasty beef fat. Something you don’t get from the larger Continental breeds. There is also a tenderness without being too soft or mushy.
