Throughout history, the rich and fertile lands of the Boyne Valley have attracted some of Ireland’s earliest settlers. For over 4,000 years, these lush grasslands, fed by the pure water of the Boyne river, have fed generations of our ancestors, producing some of the highest quality food on our island.
At Littlegrange they believe in the importance of traditional farming values. But they also believe that change can be good. Which is why when Colin Marry took over the family farm, he wanted to change how we think about meat production. Realising that traditional meat production and it’s effect on our environment was unsustainable, he decided to focus on quality rather than quantity.
Researching best-practice farming methods from other parts of the world, Colin experimented with adding olives and flaxseed to the pigs diet, and discovered that not only were the pigs healthier and happier, but the meat tasted like nothing he had tasted before. Not only has our pork a uniquely distinctive flavour, but with improved levels of Omega 3 there are numerous health benefits to including it in your diet.
