What our customers have to say...
At the start of the summer I attended the wonderful Cottage Market in Newbridge Town Hall and struck up a very interesting conversation about beef farming with Mark of Featherfield Farm based in Lullymore, Rathangan. We discussed the Dexter breed, which originated in Ireland; organic farming, animal husbandry and welfare. All the while explaining to Mark that I was trying to reduce our families meat consumption! ;) I happily filled out a competition form with the possibility of winning a joint of their Organic Dexter Round Roast. Well happy days, I won! It was brought on our family holiday. What can I say? The beef was absolutely delicious, I have never tasted beef so tender and tasty. There was talk of leftovers to be used in sandwiches for our beach picnic, eh sorry, no leftovers! While I am trying to reduce meat consumption for our household, I would prefer that when I do choose to eat beef I would like it to be of the high quality meat that has been organically farmed and endured the highest of animal welfare standards that Mark has made sure of for his Dexter cattle at Featherfield Farm.

We recently visited mark and Alison's farm in order to view their set-up before purchasing some organic beef from them. In all our years of being involved with animals we have never seen such love, care and attention to detail with livestock. The herd roam free over high quality grazing land and through native forest where they forage on wild flowers and shrubs - we were left in no doubt that you could not source better quality meat.
We purchased a quarter Dexter cow that was to do our small family 8-12 months. Amusingly it has gone so quickly and we have just placed our second order - such was the nature of how much we enjoyed the meat. Happy and healthy eating!!!

I recently purchased a quarter of a Dexter cow from Mark Hurst. Put simply the beef was of the highest quality, tender and tasted amazing. The organic nature of Mark’s farming methods no doubt contributes to the taste and flavour. All of the beef was vacuum packed, labelled and extremely well presented. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone.

After meeting and speaking to Mark Hurst, we decided to invest in our family’s health and purchased his Organic Dexter Beef. We all need to think about the future and where our food is coming from; buying organic from local producers is a step in the right direction—plus, the beef is absolutely delicious! Organic really does have a different and better taste. We highly recommend it!

I bought a quarter beef from Featherfield Farm. I’m completely satisfied with my purchase. The meat is tender and delicious. I love the convenience of having organic food at hand in my freezer.
