Calvey’s Certified Organic Achill Island Lamb

From our family farm in Kildamhnait a flock living in the wilds of nature pure and simple. Undisturbed as nature intended with only chirping birds the cries of seagulls and the humming bees for company. Idling the days munching as they go on the native plants and wild flowers which now over grow acre upon acre of former potato drills and vegetable ridges, drinking from natural streams and breathing the pure air coming off the coastline of Achill Island.
Following in the footsteps of Grainne Uaile these courageous hardy sheep stand sentinel and keep a watch over the scenic bay as they have done for generations watching man and woman come and go. The animals enjoy a good life here and have extensive ground to cover to their heart’s content.
