Featured Location

Mayo

The Mayo landscape infuses the food, heather is salty from sea spray, streams flow down from surrounding mountains and bogs. It tells the story of the land and its people and evokes a deep connection with this rugged and remote place.

BEHIND THE FOOD

The Calvey Family
Everywhere in Achill you see the recognisable Achill Mountain sheep. They are the purebred Mayo Blackface Mountain breed and have been in west Mayo since the second half of the nineteenth century. This local sheep has been farmed by the Calvey family since 1856 and, 165 years later and seven generations down, they are still farming and breeding ewes descended from the original flock? How’s that for history? Mayo is steeped in it.
