Ballyhenry Angus Organic Plus

The herd of cattle are free to roam on the 800 acre farm, fed only grass and live outdoors year-round as nature intended. We’ve planted copses on the land to provide natural shelter for the cattle. The cows gather under trees for shelter from the harsh weather and rain, and when they’re ready to calve. With 200 semi mature deciduous trees per animal we are currently in a carbon credit situation.

Our Herd

A closed suckler herd of Angus. Each animal has a huge area. 100 breeding cows roaming over 800 acres.

Our Farm

The farm is Carbon positive. 20% of the land is woodland. 200 semi mature deciduous trees per animal.
