Fields of Athenry
Animals are raised on Fields of Athenry’s farm here in Purcellville and on specially selected partner farms – are bred first and foremost for their mothering capabilities, hardiness and their ability to thrive in a natural pasture environment. They also focus on breeds that produce a high-quality meat, not necessarily the latest “fad” in animal breeds, heritage breeds or otherwise. Fields of Athenry is about the best quality in clean meat. At Fields of Athenry there is no artificial insemination, no extended daylight hours, and no hormone injections; Everything goes by the stars and the moon and an animal’s natural breeding cycles. The mother’s natural instincts produce the healthy chick, piglet, calf or lamb, and human interference is kept to an absolute minimum.
