Conor is the third generation to farm here. Dairy farmers for over 80 years, Conor turned to beef farming in 2010 and began breeding Wagyu – a breed of cattle originating from Japan. Wagyu beef is renowned for an intense marbled appearance which results in a tender, melt in the mouth meat with a distinctive and delicious flavour.
Wagyu meat is low in cholesterol, high in iron and protein, and packed full of essential amino and fatty acids including Omega-3 and Omega-6.
When the animal reaches 28 months the marbling gene kicks in and the fat stores are evenly distributed through the animal. The animals are then fed ration to enhance the marbling effect. On Finnow Farm our cattle are fed on a predominantly grass-fed diet, supplemented with a special ration made by our local miller.
We have dedicated over 10 years to perfecting our beef’s appearance, ensuring quality breeding, quality genetics and a quality Irish product.
Finnow Farm is a small family business. Our Wagyu meat is processed in Cork and distributed straight to your door. This is a quality Irish product, produced locally, processed locally and distributed to the Irish market.
