The Dexter beef from Lodge Farm in Forestside is now available, having aged for over 3 weeks. It is beautifully marbled, tender and is the Dexter dark red. This beef couldn’t have been sourced more locally, as the farm sits alongside the Stansted Forest.
Dexter is a relatively small heritage breed, that tastes as beef should: complex and full-flavoured. Reared on grass meadows of the South Downs, you could walk from the farm shop, taking a footpath through Lodge farm to see what great condition the cattle are in. It’s only a small herd, carefully tended in a bucolic setting, and judging by the look of the beef, should taste superb.
We only have a small quantity available, so pop along to the butchery counter quickly if you can. However, we should be getting another delivery in the next few weeks as well if you miss out this time.
