Andy Sheridan, Beef Farmer
Liffey Meats, Co. Cavan
Just one of the farmers that supplies us with quality Irish beef. Even on rainy days, he loves the beauty of his workplace. With a large variety of tasks, there is always something different to do every day on his County Meath farm. He enjoys every aspect of his farming life, finding great reward in working with nature, With our fresh beef being 100% fully traceable from farm to fork, only the highest animal welfare standards will do. Fed on grass and out to pasture for 240 days a year, Andy ensures his animals receive the best care and attention that he can give.
In partnership with Liffey Meats, we have introduced new and improved packaging made with FSC-certified paper and using 75% less plastic which equates to a savings of more than 70 tonnes of plastic per year as part of our CSR strategy, A Better Tomorrow.
