Processing the Beef from the O'Rourke Family's Burren Farm Experience will give you a taste of the Burren at home
Cathal and Brónagh O’Rourke are incredibly passionate about farming, conservation and sustainability. Together with their three daughters, they are fifth generation custodians of The Burren farm land. They continue to apply best practice and traditional farming methods to manage and protect the region for future generations, they feel they produce the best Beef in Ireland. You be the judge. Their farm is also Bórd Bia Approved.
Nestled between majestic Lough Bunny lake and the Burren Mountains, the lush fields are lined with iconic traditional stone walls and limestone pavement synonymous with the region's natural beauty. The O'Rourke family farm lies in the heart of The Burren’s natural abundance and it is with a conscience that Brónagh and Cathal raise cattle to provide customers with the most succulent flavoursome meat. Like the O’Rourke family, the cattle are happiest when out in nature.
Bronagh and Cathal decided to work with Valhalla Meats because they are also a family business run with a farm to table ethos. We believe that by working together we can bring the heritage of farm provenance back to everybody's kitchen and by adding a modern consumer solution we can deliver the best tasting beef to your table.
The cattle on The Burren have grazed on the amazing diversity of forage the farm has to offer. 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 Cattle in return for this abundance, by way of seasonal grazing placement, selectively graze, for example: 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, close to nature approach 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 and simply taste better!".
The O’Rourke’s have made it easier for you to have the highest standard of Irish Beef on your plate. Their excellent produce comes in mixed beef boxes containing a variety of cuts, from a variety of steaks, beef strips, minced beef to roasts and delivered straight to your door. Using an online butcher makes connecting with your farmer, your food, so simple.
Knowing beforehand exactly where your top quality, tasty beef is coming from, that it’s local and that you’re getting a range of different cuts takes the thinking out of your meat shopping, can help with meal planning and maybe even help you try out a few new recipes
