Our Story

Situated in the village of Kimbolton in Cambridgeshire, the Langley End Herd was established in 1978 by Stuart and Rosemary Creasey out of a desire to save a then endangered rare breed and to feed our family on traditionally home reared beef. The herd soon increased as a result of demand from friends and new customers to share in the delights of the quality beef produced.

In addition we have continually strived to produce fine breeding cattle and have been successful in producing excellent show cattle, with success at County and National Level Agricultural Shows. This has resulted in winning 40 bread championships, notably winning the Royal Show Best of Breed Championship for the third time in 2007 following on from success in 1989 and 2005.

Today the Langley End Herd, numbers in excess of one hundred and seventy pedigree Dexter Cattle and we continually strive to ensure the quality of the breed. The herd is grass fed and is situated on traditional grazing land including several Sites of Scientific Interest (SSI).

We follow “slow farming” practices , choosing to rear our beef cattle to between 24 – 29 months to ensure the livestock enjoy a good life on open pasture maturing naturally. We believe this along with a minimum hanging time of 21 days greatly enhancing the taste of the end product.
