“Penny - your Dexter was superb! The best, richest beef I have ever cooked - the Food Awards loved it.”

Gerard Baker, BBC Radio 4

“Penny - I felt I must say that in 20 years of having beef for Christmas lunch in York, this year’s was by far the best ever! ”

Mrs. K, York

“For 10 years I have been on the search for something that could match an Aberdeen Angus steak I had in Scotland. Your beef is the winner. ”

Mr.T, Lincs

“Coming here (to your farm) is like visiting a farm from Enid Blyton. There are ducks and hens roaming free, a dog or two, and pigs and cows in the fields. The beef is delicious, just like the beef I used to eat as a child. ”

Mrs.H, Easingwold

“Now that my children have tasted your beef, they will not eat anything else. They can tell immediately if I have used mince from the supermarket. “

Mrs. B, York
