The farm has been working with traditional and rare cattle breeds for many years. Lagan farm has an international reputation for quality and supplies breeding stock to many other herds. They are particularly well known for British Whites, Red Polls, and of course the very rare Irish Moiled cattle.
Home grown lamb is also available from Romney and Wiltshire Horn flocks, and their pork is sourced from other local farms.

After slaughter, the carcases are hung in their own chillers for the optimum length of time to develop flavour and then prepared by their own very experienced butcher and his team.
