Rosewood Dexter beef is produced from cattle grazed on one of the last remaining ancient species-rich floodplain meadow landscapes in the UK. The Yorkshire ‘Ings’ (Old Norse for water meadows and marshes) are an internationally recognised wetland landscape, created by farming and preserved for their spectacular wildlife.
The annual flooding of the Ings meadows creates a vast expanse of fresh water that attracts thousands of wintering wildfowl. In spring the floods give way to numerous species of breeding wading birds, including the only remaining breeding site of the Corncrake (Crex crex) in England.
Myriad rare wildflowers and grasses are mown for hay in the summer to provide winter feeding for Rosewood Farm’s cattle, with the regrowth grazed in the autumn to improve feeding opportunities for the post-breeding flocks of lapwing (Vanellus vanellus) and curlew (Numenius arquata).
At Rosewood the cattle are naturally bred to thrive on these semi-natural grasslands with no artificial feeding or chemicals. Medicinal herbs and wildflowers help to maintain their and our health, developing a depth of flavour like no other.
The All Week Dexter Beef Box is the ideal introduction to a selection of cuts in the proportions they come from the whole animal. These include:
