An Experience like no other!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to get a Dexter Cow ready to show? Now you can be part of it in this fabulous hands-on experience. Let The Alexander Family welcome you to their farm in the heart of Greyabbey on the shores of Strangford Lough to meet their herd of Dexters.

Stephen will introduce you to the cows - they all have names you know!

Then, Lorraine and her family will take you through all the preparation to get the cows show ready. Painting hooves, combing and shine spray! There is such a thing as cow cuddling - come and find out more.

You may even get to put on a white coat, present your cow and win a rosette!

Finish this 3 hour long experience with a BBQ on the shore with the big tent - enjoy a dexter burger or dexter hotdog, followed by a sweet treat and other local delights and the opportunity to chat to the Alexander Family.
