Chef Profiles

Consistency that gives chefs confidence

Today, many of the world’s most respected chefs appreciate and respond to Irish Hereford Prime farmers’ passion for producing beef with impeccable sustainability credentials. In the words of Richie Wilson, Culinary Director, FIRE Steakhouse, Bar & SOLE Seafood & Grill in Dublin, “Knowing all this gives me so much confidence walking out to talk to a table. It’s amazing to be able to tell guests where exactly the beef has come from, and how natural and well cared for the product is”.

Tom Barry

Tom Barry’s family farm is Baytown Park, Dunboyne, Co Meath. He is the third generation on the farm taking over from his late father, Thomas Barry in 2008 and keeps Hereford cross suckler cows as well as pedigree Hereford cows. Herefords are such a docile breed and as a part time farmer, with teenagers helping around the farm, it’s important to have a breed that’s easy to look after and handle. Tom’s farm is in the Green, Low-Carbon, Agri-Environment Scheme (GLAS) for the past 5 years, where frequently taking soil samples and the completion of a nutrient management plan are required.
