The Lamb Van

Alan and Wendy Dempster breed sheep on their 50-acre farm near Ballymoney in County Antrim. It is a fourth-generation, family- owned farm where they rear and breed 120 sheep.

“After having the costs involved highlighted, we realised we needed to increase the value of our lambs to make sheep farming viable and the way to do so was to showcase the great quality of the product in a way to appeal to a larger market.” says Wendy.

They converted a horsebox into a mobile kitchen and worked with the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) in Cookstown, County Tyrone to develop recipes.

Wendy says making and selling hand-held snacks is working for them.
“We hook them in with our lamb sausage rolls and burgers and then they come back for more” says Wendy. They do innovative lamb charcuterie called lamb ham. They also sell fresh and frozen boxes of their NIFQA (Northern Ireland Farm Quality Assured) lamb.
