Pigs are fascinating. Their curious shape, those improbably tough rubbery snouts perfectly designed for digging, their inquisitive and playful behaviour and not least their ridiculous attempts at sprinting. We are captivated by these marvellous animals.

Our goal has always been to produce the finest quality pork from pigs that enjoy a natural free-range life. By using traditional breeds that are suited to outdoor living, and by developing improved GM-free diets, we have achieved our goal. The combination of traditional slow-growing breeds, a healthy outdoor lifestyle and safe nutritious food produces fine succulent pork with a superior flavour. Our pork costs a little extra but it affords our pigs a decent life.

We doubt you will find better pigs or better pork in Ireland, as we truly offer superior meat from pigs with superior lifestyles.

Traditional Breeds

We breed all our own pigs. We use ginger and black-haired animals that can withstand the heat of a summer's day and cold winter nights. Sows must be good mothers to rear their litters with minimum intervention from our stockmen.

The breeds we use confer great qualities on the pork making it succulent and tasty. Its flavour will enhance both complex and simple dishes to provide a delicious, satisfying meal.

GM Free diets

Pigs that live outside require food that provides for their active lifestyle. Our diets are specially designed for this purpose and to maintain exceptional pork quality. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that only safe traceable raw materials are included in our feeds.

Free Range

Our pigs live outside in the fields. In summer they bathe in mud wallows to protect themselves from the sun.

In winter we provide deep beds of clean straw for them to bury themselves in to keep warm. Plenty of fresh air and exercise help to keep our pigs healthy and reduces the need for medication.
