Extract from their About us page:

William Drohan is currently farming in Comeragh, Co Waterford where he lives with his wife Bridget and young family. 

The animals roam free range over extensive areas of mountain. They graze over a much broader and more varied landscape than the lowland varieties. On the mountains, they eat grasses, herbs, wild flowers, heathers and drink natural spring water, all free from chemicals and pesticides. Due to this fact they have significantly more omega 3 fatty acids in their tissues than average lamb. Our lamb is prepared locally by an artisan butcher and is dry aged for ten days.
