Ballyart, Killenagh Gorey Co. Wexford
Macamore Buffalo is County Wexford’s newest and most unique meat offering and is one of only 3 Buffalo farms in all of Ireland.
Liam Byrne, a 4th generation farmer and his wife Sinead started their water buffalo farm in January 2016, with a view to bringing something unique and natural to the Irish market. Liam and Sinead’s herd of water buffalo, are raised on their family farm, 9 miles south of Gorey town, in Ballygarrett, Co. Wexford. Although the farm has gone through many changes, from dairy in the 1970’s to beef and sheep in the 80’s and 90’s one thing has remained constant, animals grazing the land. In keeping with that tradition, the Byrnes are doing the same. But they decided to do something new and exciting… to raise water buffalo.
The Water Buffalo is a multipurpose animal. Having been domesticated for over 5,000 years, the buffalo have been used for draft, meat, and milk. At least 130 million domestic water buffalo exist, and more people depend on them than on any other domestic animal.
