About Pheasants Hill Farm Shop

We have been producing free range pigs at Pheasants Hill Farm since 1997. Farming started as a hobby, with one Tamworth pig, and the hobby became a business in response to requests from local people who saw the pigs in the fields, and wanted to buy free range pork. Soon we added free range chickens, turkeys and geese for Christmas and later we added our own farm shop and butchery, and started to produce our dry cured bacon from Pheasants Hill Tamworth and Old Spots Pork. Since that time the business has grown to the year round production of free range pork, bacon, hams, smoked hams, lamb and eggs, free range chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks, wild venison in season and home made small batch preserves made from our own fruit and vegetables.

At Pheasants Hill Farm we produce our own rare breed free-range pork, bacon, hams, rare breed lamb and free range eggs. In addition we butcher and supply local grass fed traditional Irish breeds of beef, lamb, venison and poultry suited to the Northern Ireland environment.

Pheasants’ Hill Farm specialises in rearing and also supplying the old, and now rare, breeds of farm livestock – Dexter, Irish Moiled and Beef Shorthorn cattle, Southdown and Hebridean sheep, Tamworth and Gloucester Old Spots pigs and Dorking hens.

The traditional native breeds of cattle in which we specialise are relatively slow to mature, reaching their killing weight between 24 and 36 months.

These native Irish beef cattle breeds of Irish Moiled and Dexter are hardy, and can stand out in our Irish climate all year round. Their diet is made up exclusively of grass for 12 months of the year, if the farm land can stand the tramping of the cattle in the winter.

Our free range chickens, geese, bronze turkeys, white turkeys and ducks are reared in small free range outdoor flocks on the shores of Strangford Lough. They enjoy access to 160 acres of lush pasture. The chickens are slowly reared and kept for 16 weeks (compare this to the six week life of an average supermarket bird).

Pheasants Hill is beyond doubt the best farm shop I have ever been to. I have been visiting it for years and have never been disappointed. Whether its for a special occasion (like Christmas where I fill my car with food from them!) or just a family dinner, their food is simply fantastic.

A brilliant shop and I'm more than happy to travel quite a distance to visit them. The staff are lovely and very knowledgeable and their food is delicious. You can genuinely taste the difference from supermarket meat to Pheasants Hill. No comparison.
