Stephen and Eva’s farm is a traditional small holding that keeps free range cattle and rare breed pigs, mainly Saddleback and Glousester Old Spot breeds and crosses, hens and ducks, donkeys, dogs and a cat.
The farm’s ethos is to keep everything as natural as possible and animal welfare is crucial. The pigs have sheds with plenty of straw to shelter in when the weather is bad, but the doors are open so they can go outside whenever they like. Pigs love grass and they spend time eating loads of it – they get most of the minerals and nutrients from our rich soil, the herbs and the grasses. So in essence, what’s good for the animals and the land will naturally be good for us.
Burren Free Range Pork Farm is open for visitors to come and stay overnight, to buy meats from the farm shop (Burren Pork’s award winning meats are of best quality pork), or simply to come and see the animals.
