We’re proud to partner with McCarthys of Kanturk to bring our product to market. Initially going direct to consumers with our quality product was only made possible with the help of local, respected butchers. McCarthys is one of the most celebrated and respected butchers in Ireland. The family butchers shop has been supplying Kanturk with top quality meat since 1892. McCarthy’s of Kanturk are the artisan butchers behind an award-winning black pudding that was actually served to Queen Elizabeth when she visited in 2011.
How Dexter Beef is Different:
The breed is pre-disposed to develop unique ‘spider’ marbling, a trait commonly seen in Wagyu beef.
Dexter beef is naturally more tender than other beef and is high in CLAs, Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9.
It's the smallest breed of cow in the world, joints & cuts are in smaller portions. Roasts are also the perfect size for slow-cookers.
Dexter beef has strong visual appeal, with a ruby red meat colour & deep yellow fat content, providing a more natural looking beef.
