Burren Free Range Pork
Stephen and Eva rear happy pigs, and make happy, delicious, pork products. Their Saddleback pigs roam around their sustainable small-holding, in the sort of idyllic conditions that all farm animals deserve: lots of good grass to eat; no chemical fertilisers anywhere; soft straw beds in comfy sheds to return to at nighttime; plenty of space to play. The Burren pork products are, thereby, as good as it gets: plump, porky sausages; lovely rashers; juicy pork chops with delicious fat; sweet Xmas hams; beautiful pork belly with crisp crackling.
The Burren pork products would be enough to have earned Eva and Stephen renown, but the addition of their Burren Glamping – a whacky, irresistible converted horse truck where guests can stay on the farm – really seals the dal on why you just have to get to Kilfenora: just imagine having an Irish breakfast with Burren pork products on the farm where the foods are produced! And when you stay, you get to meet all the citizens of the farm: hens; pigs; cows; cats; donkeys, and ducks. It all sounds just like a child’s storybook about a farm, and that’s exactly what it is.
