Our Farmers

Our expert farmers know their craft inside and out - every inch of every field, every animal in their herd.

Most of these farms have been passed down through families for generations. Carefully honed animal husbandry skills ensure that our farmers get the best from both the animals and the land. The result is undeniable - premium quality beef that leaves a lasting impression.

Meet Patrick Shine, a TDA Beef farmer

The Shine family have been raising cattle on the foothills of the Knockmealdown Mountains for three generations. Patrick takes pride in farming his family’s land and hopes to pass it on to the next generation. He loves farming because he gets to work outdoors in nature and gets a great sense of satisfaction seeing his animals thrive in the clean, fresh air of rural County Tipperary.
