Focused on bringing the heritage of farm provenance back to everybody’s kitchen with modern consumer solution and are collaborating with them to bring to your table the best tasting beef having grazed there amazing 500 diverse farm in the heart of the Burren in Co Clare. The Burren is one of world’s most unique and outstanding landscapes. It is an oasis of natural habitat, from unique herbs to fragile orchids, seasonal lakes to rare butterflies. It is the soul of Ireland. The practice of transhumance or out wintering is of enormous ecological significance: wintering animals remove all the dominant herbs and grasses that would otherwise inhibit herb growth and limit plant species diversity, without damaging these plants during their flowering season. This practice of grazing the rich herbs on the limestone pavement coupled with the lush grassland available to our livestock gives our beef a distinctive “Burren flavour”.
