Brendan and Derek Allen are the inspiration behind Castlemine Free Range. They are the latest generation to be involved in the family farm in Four-Mile-House, Co Roscommon. The Allen brothers saw an opportunity to move away from the more intensive farming methods to more traditional, slow growing style of farming. Their farming philosophy is simply that slowly grown equals greater taste.
They produce beef, lamb, rare breed pigs, and poultry and are familiar faces at the farmers’ market in Moycullen. They also have just launched an extensive meat box scheme and have put together a number of set beef and lamb boxes which vary in size, contents, and price. If you prefer to choose your own contents they will also put together a meat box based solely on your requirements. All meat boxes are delivered direct to your door and they offer free delivery in Galway and surrounding areas. As well as once off deliveries, a regular delivery of their high quality produce can be arranged. More details are available by calling Brendan on (090 ) 6629886 or by visiting www.castleminefarm.ie
