Nestled on a hillside in leafy Warwickshire you will find a very happy farmer, Mycroft Perry, and his calm and friendly herd of Dexter cattle.

The farm is a truly family affair. Mycroft’s wife Sasha and four children each have their own special cows and followers.

Three years ago, Mycroft purchased a magnificent red bull called Wizard and the little beef herd has grown from strength to strength. The herd is kept solely on grass, and grown slowly, as nature intended.

All the finished steers are taken to a local abattoir by Mycroft personally to ensure that they arrive with the least possible stress and over the least possible distance. It is this attention to detail which ensures that The Happy Farmer sells the finest Dexter Beef and has the happiest herd of Dexter cattle. Mycroft always has stock available for sale and is happy to chat to you about your requirements, should you need two steers to chew off some grass around a paddock or a group of foundation cows to start your

own herd.

Mycroft updates his blog on facebook at Happy Dexters regularly where you can follow his exploits and see what’s happening on the farm.

If you would like some Dexter Beef, it is sold from the farm gate in a boxed beef scheme or he will deliver up to about

15 miles.

MORE: If you would like to contact The Happy Farmer, e-mail or like his facebook page Happy Dexters. He’s always happy to talk cattle.
