Castlemine Farm has been part of the Allen Family legacy for over three generations. The Allen brothers Brendan & Derek spent much of their childhood working the land with their father Sean and learned to appreciate and embrace the use of traditional farming practices to produce great tasting high quality products. Having taken a career break to pursue his education as a marine scientist, Brendan returned to his true passion of farming in early 2008. The desire to be part of Ireland’s artisan food growth sowed the seeds of entrepreneurship for both brothers who saw a tremendous opportunity to turn the farm into a full scale business venture.
Comprising over 250 acres, spanning several lush green fields of top quality land in Ireland, Castlemine Farm extends far and wide across the region of Castlemine in the heart of Four mile House in Co. Roscommon. Most of the farmland was reclaimed by hand, by Mr. John James Allen and Mr. Sean Allen, Brendan and Derek’s grandfather and father respectively. The on farm production facilities are HACCP compliant HSE registered and the farm part of a Bord Bia quality assurance scheme. The Allen brothers have reinvented the ‘Farming By Hand ’ concept which is the essence of the Castlemine Farm Brand. Their ability to employ traditional farming practices
like rearing of livestock outdoors (as much as possible), hand curing meat and hand making sausages are just some of the examples which symbolise a ‘Return to Basics traditional style farming approach’ so evident in the day to day management of Castlemine Farm.
