The Allshires - Willie and Avril and their sons, William and Maurice - probably have the oldest commercial herd of free range outdoor pigs in Ireland

Caherbeg Free Range Foods

Willie Allshire is well known for his free range pork products, including dry cure rashers.


The Allshires - Willie and Avril and their sons, William and Maurice - probably have the oldest commercial herd of free range outdoor pigs in Ireland as they began rearing pigs, and wholesaling their free range pork in 1997.


However, although they remain very small producers, they maintain two brands: Caherbeg Free Range Pork, which is all meat from their own herd of free range outdoor pigs, and the Rosscarbery Recipes brand, which is made from locally produced Irish pork. They have their own on-farm processing unit where they process everything for the two brands


Willie is no stranger to awards, among them Silver and Bronze awards for Rosscarbery Recipes Black Pudding in the competition organised by Le Confrérie des Chevaliers du Goute-Boudin, France. He was the first Irish person to win a medal in this prestigious competition in 2007 when he won Gold.


You will find Willie at Clonakilty Farmers' Market on Thursdays; products are also available from selected outlets, or order directly (can be delivered locally).
