The Dean Family has long been synonymous with the provision of the finest meat throughout the West Country, farming, gamekeeping, butchering and catering since the 1800's.
The name ‘Devon Rose’ came originally from Rose Dean a bastion of good eating, a farmer, and a butcher Rose was a trailblazer of her time. Basil Dean continued the family tradition, by the age of 14 in 1957 with his father Colin prepared meat for the local community from the Ashcott butchery in Somerset. This was a prelude to an impressive career in meat spanning over 55 years. Basil's career saw him running butchers shops in England and Southern Ireland. Sadly Basil passed away in February of 2016 but his legacy lives on.
In 2018 Devon Rose joined forces with another family-run business with an impressive pedigree in meat. The Greig family, known for sustainable farming and their award-winning ethical online meat business Pipers Farm.
The Greig family continue to purvey the finest meat based on time-honored principals, direct to food service through Devon Rose and to homes around the country through Pipers Farm.
