Meet our beef farmer Sam Chesney from the lush grasslands of Kircubbin
My family have farmed at Cool Brae Farm in Kircubbin on the shores of Strangford Lough for nearly 50 years.
To act as a custodian of the land in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is an honour, and we work hard to farm in harmony with nature. The lush grasslands of the rolling County Down landscape are ideal for producing top quality Farm Quality Assured beef and lamb.
Participating in the Farm Quality Assurance Scheme helps us maintain high standards at the farm end of the production chain. We specialise in taking time to produce top quality grass because it produces top quality beef and lamb, and we farm 130 award-winning limousin crossbred cows and 50 pedigree ewes on 200 acres of land.
We are also committed to ensuring we leave this landscape in a better condition than we found it, and using its magnificent potential to produce top quality Farm Quality assured beef and lamb along the way.
