A family lamb farm in Newcastle
for three generations

The Bourke family of Kilmullen farm in Newcastle County Wicklow have been in the lamb business for three generations. Our lamb is ethically reared on our family farm where they are free to graze and where their diet and welfare are of the outmost importance. The lamb is clover and grass-fed, with the natural addition of the herbs, that can be found in the hedge-rows e.g. wild mint, wild garlic. They also can be seen eating the seasonal windfalls from the orchard and any remaining sweetcorn that was either damaged and not suitable for direct sale or just not quite ripe enough for market. We sell directly from the farm, online and through farmers markets because we get to meet and know our customers.

Our primary goals

Relationships

We have a large repeat business so we get to know their changing story and needs year on year as nothing stands still so requirements can change. Famers markets are an integral part of our business . We get to know our customers changing requirements and their story. Click here to learn more about the markets we attend.

Experiences

It is also never really just about the lamb, it is the story behind it, it’s provenance, some like to collect their boxed lamb directly from the farm and meet us on home turf, they meet the sheepdogs and see the sheep across the fields, this is all part of their cooking journey and part of the experience.

Education & Guarantee

Our customers who have children like to show their children where their food is coming from so there is an education piece there too. Now more than ever people want to know where their food is coming from, and trust is the new currency. Our lovely customers trust the product we produce and we can 100% guarantee its loveliness.
