PRODUCTS

Our calves are reared by their mother until they are ten months old. They graze outdoors for 9 months a year and they go indoors for the 3 coldest months. Animal welfare and animal husbandry are a huge priority. We put a lot of time and effort into our cattle to make sure they have the best of feed and comfort.

You can purchase this great quality meat in traditional cuts like steaks, roasts, mince, burgers and other cuts like diced beef and our signature beef products like the Blackcastle 1% fat beef sausages, Pastrami and cured beef.

PRINCIPLES

Blackcastle Farm is a Bord Bia approved farm with an abundance of biodiversity and wildlife. We love the farm and are committed to the environment, biodiversity, and sustainable farming management.

We have left hedgerows uncut for 10 years to allow birds and other wildlife to flourish on the farm. No pesticides are used on Blackcastle Farm and as a result we have lots of wildflowers and dandelions.
